4 Years of Miracles

I am pretty sure my life has hit a new level of crazy! I am finding it harder and harder to sit down and write. For that I am sorry!

I have been thinking a lot lately about life amongst the craziness. I have been reflecting on how different today was four years ago. This very evening on March 24th 2007 all of my four kids were tucked into bed. My husband was at home and I had gone out with some friends to a comedy club downtown. I came home and checked on my kids before heading to bed and all was well in the world.

Today four years later all is still well in the world. It has taken some time to get back there but even though it is hard to really put words to I am there.

This family has  become part of a whole new world I never would have given any thought to 4 years ago. A world filled with the most kind hearted, amazing people, who I would have never met. A world that I have learned over the last 4 years to exist in while at the same time co existing with the rest of the world. It is a world of very interesting words and what has seemed like a whole new language. Then there is the new uncharted government systems containing doctors, insurance companies, home health care companies, therapists, waivers, equipment, and many battles to get Makenzie what she needed. It has become a world that I can navigate with my eyes shut.

Tonight as I watched my boys make a obstacle course and then see who could race around it faster in a wheelchair made me smile.  Then when I put my coat on and reached into the pocket to find a 10cc syringe I had to giggle because all of these little things have just become so normal to me. I can't see my life any other way.


March 24th 2007 at 9:33pm, I had no clue what was to come in just a few short hours. I only knew then that tomorrow would be a new day! It sure was not the day I expected but a day I will never ever forget. It is a day that brings an attitude of gratefulness for many blessings and much healing every year. It is a day that I can look back on and see the many huge Miracles God has abundantly given to our family.

March 25th 2007, where were you?

Believe... Prayer Works!

I have to tell you, I truly enjoy reading Makenzie's blog! She makes me smile and she makes me have more faith and hope that my Emmy can be where Makenzie is in 4 years. I get so much joy seeing all the new things she's doing and the better quality of life she is getting. :) I pray that her healing continues!

You are so lucky to have such a lovely family, I can't imagine how hard the anniversary of the accident is for you. Makenzie has done amazingly these past four years and it's down to you being such an amazing mum. Oatie will be 4 in July.... But we've only had his diagnosis for a year though. Love Mel xxx
