On my original blog, The Real Housewife of Bedford County, I am doing a post each day in November about things for which I am thankful. Today, on The Simpson Six, I am thankful for a woman named Jackie. Jackie contacted me via email very shortly after we committed to adopting Katie Ruth and told me that she was a prayer warrior for Reece's Rainbow, and that she would be praying for our family and for Katie. I am not the most observant religious follower, but I certainly feel like I'm a faithful person. I believe 100% in the power of prayer, and I feel like we are very lucky to have Jackie's prayers and support. Jackie does not live near us, and I do not know her in "real life", but I think about her often. I think about how fortunate we are to have her support and her prayers, and her thoughtfulness. I think about how generous she is to open her heart to our family and Katie - people she has never met. I think about her relationship with God and how important that must be to her. I think about what a great program the Prayer Warrior program is and how lucky Katie Ruth is to have a prayer warrior who is thinking about her and praying for her. Jackie has sent me such kind, thoughtful, sincere emails, and she has even made a donation to our FSP account.
So tonight, I am thankful for Jackie. I am thankful for her supporting us, praying for us, and opening her heart to us. I am thankful for Jackie's generosity and for her faith. I am thankful for Jackie.
