Today, I reflect on the last seven months. The hills and the valleys - and I am grateful! Not just for answered prayers and miracles, but I am more thankful that God NEVER left our side. He was there walking beside us, giving us peace, wisdom, provision of a place to stay, friends who were a blessing, Dr's who were very good at what they do, and reminding us of HIS Sovereignty. It has been 7 months and 2 days since Nathan's accident, and he is doing GREAT! He is working out daily at the gym, he is only 5 pounds down from the day of the accident. His muscle mass is building and he looks awesome! He still has a prominent limp and a couple fingers on his right hand that don't work so great - but this all pales in comparison to the fact that he is ALIVE! Thank you, sincerely, for praying for us and following his story. I know God has great things planned for him!
Last night we sat down at the table as a complete FAMILY. All 5 of us! Brandon had made it over the pass and was home. When we sat down I just kept grinning - my family thought I was nuts - but I was absolutely giddy!
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you! Today - enjoy your families, and be thankful for the fact that God never leaves our sides!
ON THE LIGHTER SIDE OF THINGSYesterday Max and I were having a chat about overindulgence this holiday season. So we both weighed in................................
One of my BFF's has decided to start walking daily - she is unwavering in her decision - she doesn't miss a day - not even in the horrid pouring rain! I am so proud of her!! Max and I decided we need to join the band wagon. Max has more determination than me - I wouldn't go out this morning, but he stuck to his guns and headed out..................(can't you just hear the theme from Rocky inserted here?!)
