As I sit here writing, I can’t believe how quickly winter has come and gone, and how fast the beautiful spring weather is approaching us. How is it that three months have passed and I will be having another scan tomorrow? While most people want to “fast forward” through the rest of the winter season, I often wish life had a pause button. I sometimes lie in bed in the morning while Jaclyn and the boys are downstairs, and just listen to all of them laughing and talking. To me, these moments are priceless. I hold these memories close to my heart, but at the same time, I can’t help but wonder and worry if their laughter would fade without me here. My hope is that it will never fade.
My mind often flips back and forth between thinking about a future my family will have without me in it, to the present. The present that I am so incredibly grateful to know. My “present” thoughts are filled with thanking God for everything He has blessed me with, and the time I have been given. Time that statistically, I shouldn’t have had at all. In the end, no matter where my thoughts land during the day, the one thing I need and can continue to do is simply thank God and keep fighting forward. I ask that you please keep us in your thoughts and prayers for a clean scan tomorrow. Thank you, and God Bless!
