Two years ago today, our lives were changed forever. Before this happend I never really understood when people would say, "it feels like forever ago, but at the same time it feels like it just happened yesterday." Well, now I understand. It feels like it just happened yesterday because I can think back to that night, that phone call, that drive, that wait, that awful news, and the emotions are still as strong as they were that night. It feels like forever ago because of everything we've experienced in two years. I mean, have you ever had to set your alarm clock for 395 days straight? I did...I had to be at the hospital or rehab every day for 13 months solid...and I'm no worse for wear. The break last year was so awesome, lots of rest for everyone and we all needed it. The return to TLC in Jan of this year wasn't so great and once again coming home has been the best medicine. I can tell you what I miss about those first 9 months or so of Rick's injury...I miss the relationship I had with God...oh I still pray and stand on the promises he made, I'm still at peace and know he's got this. What I mean is the feeling of his presence right beside me...the intimacy of knowing him on that level is not even something I can put into words. It's the only way I survived...He really does comfort the broken hearted.
I am writing in detail what happened when Rick got hurt in a note on Facebook. I'm not sure how many notes it will take, but I'm writing it in parts and pieces...as you know, it's a long story! I'll try to copy it to the blog, but I'm not sure if I can.
Nothing is impossible for God." Luke 1:37
