Such a blessing!!!

Blessings come in so many forms.  And just at times that you least expect it.  We received a huge blessing this week and it still amazes me.  I know, I know God is Great....and he will provide, but I have to admit I am truly amazed!!!

Our blessing this week came in the form of an airline ticket purchased for Cami for Thanksgiving, because due to our move this summer/fall to Connecticut, and how expensive Thanksgiving travel can be, we had to chose Christmas tickets and not to fly her home at Thanksgiving.  We were good with that decision knowing Cami has grandparents, uncle, aunt and cousins all to go to in Sarasota.  But Cami was still a little homesick and her cheer team noticed.  They decided to form "Operation Fly Cami Home" and they raised money thru their own gifts and from gifts of others in the community to buy Cami a ticket home for Thanksgiving.  Cami's coach called me at the end of last week to say that she had a surprise for Cami, but needed our help.  She confirmed what airports would be convenient for us and asked if time frames mattered....of course they didn't....so she booked the flight.  Then the hard part came, keeping the secret from Cami.  I know how stressed out Cami has been with school, cheer, work and her volunteer times....and I knew what a lift this would be to her spirit....but I also knew that her team really wanted to surprise her with a big TICKET and they definitely deserved to get to see Cami's first reaction....so I stayed quiet like a good mama!!!  :O)

They surprised her at practice last night with this huge boarding pass and of course the real ticket too.  Cami was not only surprised, but she was also floored.  She is just SO thankful for such wonderful people around her.  God has truly blessed our Cami with a great school and great people.  Thank you God!!!

Ephesians 1:3
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.

Thank you to the team, youth pastor, cheer coach and her entire support system at school.  We are all truly blessed because of you!!!
