6 months ago...............

 Tomorrow it will have been 6 months since we got the dreaded phone call that Nathan had been in a motorcycle accident.
 Every now and then something will bring a memory from that time to the forefront of my brain and I am overwhelmed.  For those of you who ask how Nathan is times I can answer with joy and a positive attitude....................and other times we are struggling here and I am emotional.  I am sorry if you are one of the ones that got the latter of the moods. I try not to be a downer, but some days  - I am.

There is NO denying that we were given miracle after miracle!  Nathan is doing well.  Especially considering that he is 2 months out from his most major surgery.  He is bending in all the right places, gaining weight (he currently weighs the most he has since the accident), down to PT once a week and working out at Homestead every day.

He still has decisions to make about his future, so pray for him and us, as we help him consider the options.

He has started pre-school!  Last Friday he volunteered in Ethan's (the cartoon watching buddy) class.
 The teachers and kids LOVED him and want him to come on a regular basis!

The picture at the top was taken a week ago - I'm hoping to get more pictures this weekend as we are having lunch with Randy's family on Sunday - I was hoping to have the family over for the 6 month anniversary, but I have been gone and am going to be gone again until Sat. evening, so when Randy's mom called to say she was having lunch I told her we would celebrate there!

THANK YOU for your faithfulness as friends, blog readers, prayer warriors, etc.  We have been strengthened by you and are blessed to have walked this journey with you.  We continue to covet your prayers!

Isaiah 43:2
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you............

I continue to be blessed by your blog. Your honesty and mommy-ness SO points to the Lord and His faithfulness and your appreciation for His work, love and continued grace in your life and your families!
I miss seeing you at Board, but know the timing is good for you to be finished with that responsibility.
Many more blessings, my dear!
