8 Years ago....


I don't know if this date will ever lose the significance it has in my heart.  It is a day I still remember vividly...actually with a bizarre level of detail.  It was the day I saw my child dying. It was a day I saw the faces of my other children in more pain than I could imagine as fear of losing some one so dear to them hit them truly for the first time  It was also the day my baby boy and I started our journey into this thing called Epilepsy and seizures and crazy diets and refusing toxic treatments.  It was a day that planted a fear so deeply inside me that I knew only God understood. I didn't know that my youngest son and I would, more or less, walk this journey alone but we haven't done so bad.

8 years ago, everything was unknown...would he be alive the next day or the next?  Would he be permanently changed?  How could I help?  There were no answers.

But, 8 years later, most of it spent as a single parent...I have gotten to witness first hand, and continue to see, the amazing young man he is becoming.  Just a few weeks ago I got to watch as he signed his commitment to his first choice college - after also being accepted into his #2 and #3 choices!  Honestly, 8 years ago I didn't know if that would ever happen.  He has worked hard and I am proud of him for not letting anything hold him back.

I know many of you have prayed over this young man and thank you is not near enough.
 I know God heard our cries. 
Thank you, God, for this child.

Blessed,

Merry Christmas VLOG Attempt 1!

I have been wanting write for several weeks but haven't bothered which ultimately turned out to be a good thing as what I would have written about, I now would wish I hadn't (READ: single girl shouldn't share) so instead I decided to jump on the  VLOG train with my "Christmas Card:"

Please tell me what you think about videos on the blog as I kind of want to explore it more but would like some feed back!  Thank you, dear blog friends...you are the best!

Before you go, though, let me share this as you contemplate your next move...

"Be a pioneer into illusion, an adventurer into the unknown, and a lifter of veils.  Be Courageous, heroic, and exalted by legions in the unseen.

Give beyond reason, care beyond hope,  love without limit; reach, stretch, and dream, in spite of your fears.

Your light illuminates darkened paths, your gaze lifts broken spirits, and already your life has changed the course of history... why stop now?"
