And in September 2009 Mommy was diagnosed with a terminal disease (a genetic form of ALS) that took her to Heaven in July, 2011, leaving Daddy and two young girls to make it on their own.

Merry Christmas

We feel blessed this year. We have so very much to be thankful for. We are together and will be able to be with family over the next few days. It has been over a year since the house fire and we are getting back to "normal".

We were able to get Rebekah's Tango ordered and it arrived in time for Rebekah to open it up at her birthday party. Her eyes got really big and she said "My Tango" when she saw the box. She opened the box, turned it on and started using it (well using it might be a stretch). We weren't sure if she would remember how it worked or not, but she certainly can get around on it. She still needs help to work with it and truly make it "her" voice. We have applied to several grants to pay for the remainder and haven't heard back, yet, so please pray that the funding comes through for us.

All week last week, both girls were off school due to snow days. We have had about 3 feet of snow fall at our house (and some freezing rain) in the last week and a half and very cold weather. The low on our thermometer was 9 degrees F one night. We still have about two feet of snow on the ground. It is a winter wonderland. They are expecting more snow tomorrow. This is not typical weather for here, so it has made travel difficult.

We hope you all have a safe and merry Christmas! May God's love surround you this holiday season and may you remember that Jesus is the reason for the season. We are thankful for all that God has done for us (much of it through you) and we hope that you are able to reflect on all that he has done for you. God Bless You.

Merry Christmas and Happy New year!

My names Rebekah as well! Around a year ago i was quite bored so i googled my name; and found you. I've been following you for quiet some time now and I'm glad to see that your prayers are being answered. I think that has to do with the persistance and dedication you have towards God, because no matter what has happened in the last five years you have never turned your backs and never given up hope. That takes so much more than the average person :)
You are always in my prayers

Dear family,
I stumbled upon your blog completely by accident - I was actually playing a "google game" where you google you own name. My name happens to be Rebekah, spelled just like your little one's! I am blessed to have stumbled upon this, the story of a treasure! Thank you for inspiring me and I am even now saying a prayer for your family. Keep fighting the good fight, and may the love of Christ envelope each of you so fully that the world cannot touch you! God bless you all.
