I couldn’t have said it better myself....
On this date one year ago as I was driving my daughter to college, we were involved in one of the most traumatic car accidents of our life. She missed her first semester of college as a freshman. Instead she spent her time going through physical therapy to learn how to walk again. She has a permanent titanium rod in her left leg. I spent 5 weeks in a hospital going through multiple surgeries all on my left side. The whole time I cried and cursed and kept asking God why? I had nurses pray over me. I had doctors in shock as to how we made it out alive. I don’t know....
Instead of being angry at all the things that have happened to us, we have chosen to be thankful for what we still have. It’s been a very challenging year, but we made it through together. We have so many people to thank for coming to be by our bedside in the hospital, for leaving their lives behind to be there for us, and to let us cry when we were so pissed at the person who caused it. Thank you to my in laws for packing up within minutes and rushing to be with Haeli.
Thank you to my sister in law for staying with me and buying me all the things to comfort me as we didn’t know at the time how long I would be staying.
Thank you to all my nurses, doctors, physical and occupational therapists who helped me with the things that I never thought I would need help with. I was humbled very quickly ... they let me cry and scream and fight my way through the pain.
Thank to ALL of our friends and family for the calls, cards, messages and gifts. We truly felt the presence of God in you.
Things will never be perfect, but we have our life and that is what matters the most. Today, we are celebrating our life-aversary. I couldn’t have made it without God and all the people he has put into our lives when we needed them most.
Thank you thank you. We made it!
