The other day I came across a post on Facebook that asked what you are Grateful for. I sat and stared at the screen forever and asked myself what there was to be grateful for? The past month or so has been difficult. Everything going on with my dad and then my bestfriend lost her dad in an accident and that really hit home for me. Our dads are our best friends and we have to learn to keep living without there constant ongoing presence in our lives. We will be forever bonded in a way because of our dads. And for that I am grateful to have her by my side.
But as I sit here now and write this blog up, I'm actually grateful for a lot of things. I am so very grateful for my dad. He is the biggest inspiration to me because of all he's been through and how he continues to keep going. He's helped me to realize how precious life is and how it can be gone in the blink of an eye!
Another thing that I'm so grateful for, is all of you guys! I've said it over and over again and I will continue to keep saying it. I'm so grateful for all of you. These past 9 almost 10 months I have realized that we are not alone In this battle. I have recieved so many messages from people I know and people I have never met. It makes me so happy to know that complete strangers can be so kind. And it warms my heart even more to know that others who have suffered from this injury are willing to open up and give us some light into this long journey. I love to hear about other peoples journey because it gives me hope. Hope that maybe one day we can get to where they are! And a faith that says it's possible.
The last thing that my entire family and I are grateful for, are the prayers. It's amazing that someone from such a small town can affect people all the way in other states and even countries. But the prayers are slowly working! So keep them coming. Please!
My dad was truly lucky that night and was being watched over. It just amazes me everyday that someone could survive something so terrible. And for all of that I am truly grateful.
