One year ago memorial day, we found out our son had brain cancer. We have traveled a long hard road. We never knew if we would make it to the one year mark. The doctors said we wouldn’t. We are eternally grateful to our Lord Jesus Christ who spared our son’s life. He gave us this year, and we took it as a gift. we know we live on borrowed time. We know we live moment to moment.

Some of the good things that came out of this year, that I do not want to forget are (click each red link)

This year was so good. we had so many blessings to be grateful for. This year was full of struggles and hardship. It was joy mixed with sorrow. Both ran very deep. It was learning interdependence and trusting others for help and to fill in the gap. It pushed my relationship with God far past what I thought would be a breaking point. It stretched me and pulled me into a million pieces. amazingly, I am still here. And stronger for it.

I almost lost a child. I kissed him goodbye for the last time on the way into the operating room. He almost died. But, what came out was a miracle. His story has touched so many lives and changed a lot of perspectives. Thank you for all the support and love you have provided our family. The journey is far from over, but the sprint is over and we won.

Thank you for a wonderful year,
