FAITH IS BEING SURE OF WHAT WE HOPE FOR AND CERTAIN OF WHAT WE DO NOT SEE. HEBREWS 11:1

Well, I don't know where to start first. How about PRAISE GOD!!! First of all, we took Rick back to TLC on Sunday, stayed a few hours and came home. It was hard to leave him and he didn't want to stay. On Monday evening I called and he told me his day "sucked". On Tuesday evening I called and he told me his day was "sh*%ty" and that he wanted to come home. So, I went to see him on Wednesday and gave him a combo peptalk/swift kick in the rear. I got to go to his therapy with him just like old times and really enjoyed it. In PT he walked with his walker turned backwards so that it forces him to stand up taller and not lean forward so much. Then, Kevin (PT), took the walker away and had Rick walk with just Kevin helping him by holding on to his gait belt. Rick was able to go 30 feet and I was very excited. Then today I got a text from his TA, Justin, telling me that he had just walked 200 feet without his walker and he did 100 feet all at one time! This is CRAZY!!! How can it be? Am I that good at pep talks? No, no, let's give glory where glory is due! This weekend he has to stay in Lubbock, but doesn't necessarily have to be at TLC...he can get day passes when his weekend therapies are over. This weekend therapy is something new they've started since we left. I don't like it at all, but he has to get at least 6 hours of therapy between Sat and Sun. He is getting all of his done on Saturday so he'll be able to leave Sat afternoon and Sunday. If we lived closer we could actually come home, but 5 hours in the car is just not worth it.

More good news...I'm just about on overload with this good news thing...we are definitely closing on the house tomorrow. I wired the funds today and you know when they ask for the moolah it's a done deal! There are no words to truly express how I have felt today. And when I talked to Rick this evening he said his day was "good". Mine was INCREDIBLE!

We couldn't have done all this without you, thank for all of your support.

Love,
Crystal

  6. (Sorry had to fix a typo) Wow! I don't even know you all. Reading this post makes me sense the presence of God in this whole situation. Crystal, you are a strong women and I can tell you love your family. Some time ago I wrote a post on this site giving some words of encouragement, since then it appears God has done a huge miracle! I will pray right now for Rick to continue receive encouragement and to keep his head up. Lord give Rick the strength to walk 500 feet without his walker!

  7. You first need to select the positions on your North Face Jackets leather jackets to place patches. You can select locations such as the back of your jackets. Arms are also a very good place to position your patches. Belstaff Bags You can position your patches that you think it will look its best. Just don't place them over seems and pockets. You can use measuring tape to align your patch straight if you want. Otherwise randomly placed patches also give a good look. You can just add patches and leave the rest of your leather in the same way if you want. Cheap Ugg Boots But there are tons of other ideas too to make custom leather jackets.
