A year ago today an MRI showed a lesion in the pons of Steve's brain stem.
Many of you have been a part of our adventure ever since. Others have hopped aboard along the way. Every day, when I say prayers of thanks, I include you -- the folks who have prayed with us and for us, who have offered gifts, who have cared for us and our children.
Instead of retelling the pain of the last year, I asked Steve to share some of his favorite things. I first asked for a list of 10. Not enough, he said. I asked for 20. Still, not enough. Whatever it takes, I said!
His list isn't inclusive, and it's in no particular order:
Some of Steve's favorite things from the past year
Cooper playing soccer
Taking Cooper to see Wicked in Chicago
Love from friends old and new, neighbors, co-workers and strangers
Every new day
Bathing my kids
Washing the dishes
Our Christmas tree
Amazing doctors, nurses and staff
Baskin Robbins’ Peanut Butter 'n Chocolate Ice Cream
Run for Steve
Cracking myself up
Too many more blessings to possibly list here
