Yes, I do have a lot to be thankful for but…

So our family has had a rough couple weeks, well months actually! With my dads cancer diagnosis just seems to be more bad news all the time and our oldest daughter’s anxiety has reached a high and has complicated every aspect of our lives! It is so hard to see the ones closest to us suffer! Especially my daughter, my husband and I, are at a loss on how to help! Mental disorders vary with each person; on what works and what doesn’t, so it’s tough to figure out the correct treatment for her.

This thanksgiving weekend has been tough, normally we’d go see our families, go to a movie or other fun family activities and we just can’t right now with her. Having to help her takes both my husband and I, and then we have 2 other, younger children, that need us as well. And how do we explain what is happening to her?!

So many questions with no answers and just struggling this weekend – because I am Thankful, God has blessed me more than what I would ever deserve but… I am sad too! And when I hear people talk about how much we have to be thankful for, I feel a negative nudge and I don’t like that! I know God has a plan and I am beyond blessed with so much, but yes, I am asking for more from Him…like more time with my dad, strength for my husband and I to help my daughter , patience for our 2 other children, and for God to heal my daughter’s mind…I’ve never felt this way and I question if it’s okay…
