  1. That's awesome you kept a list. Thank YOU for showing us what God has been teaching you through your struggles.

  2. Didn't keep a list. Just went back and thought of everyone who'd been generous. If I forgot someone I'm so sorry!

  3. I'm thankful for you and God's amazing power to save others through your story!

  4. Thank you, Sarah Ruth Lanier Domino - For your example of faith, strength, hope, humor and honesty in dealing and coping with a serious illness. I hope you realize that your example has helped US through, as well. So thank you for letting us be there for you as much as we knew how and for understanding and guiding us when we sometimes struggled to know what to do or say. And thank you for being one of the most precious blessings in my life.

  5. I've been thinking about you a lot even though I never call. I get caught up in my own life and I always have it in the back of my mind that you are well taken care of with your great friends and family and you don't need any additional help from me. But, I am here for you for whatever you would like for me to help you with or just to talk. I think about you all the time so I just wanted you to know. :) I think you are very inspiring, have great faith, and funny as heck. And you are a great writer. I look at your blog and think the compilation would make an awesome bible study! Bobbie
