Orange Juice, ETC

The blog of Elias & Theresa Carlson


We have so much to be thankful for. This year has thrown us a couple challenges that we never really thought we would have to face. My Dad was diagnosed with cancer and Elias lost his job. Both challenges are vastly different but both were equally unexpected, the former being far more devastating than the later.

Yet here we are. We have spent the week with my Dad who’s latest test results came back clear and who is over halfway done with treatment. Of course the process has been difficult but the blessings have been countless. There is so much more than I wish to tell here in this post, I simply couldn’t do the challenges or the blessings justice.

As for Elias, he is happier than he has been in years.

Today, we are happy and healthy and surrounded by the people we love. What more could we ask for? We hope that you, too, have countless reasons to be thankful.

Now, start listening to this!

    What more could ANY of us ask for? 2012 has packed a punch in so many good and hard ways. And in the end I too keep coming back to being so thankful.
