I REPEAT, I am NOT a cow.


Me: "Cale am I getting fat?"
Cale: shoulder shrug
Me: "Like, do I look like a cow?"
Cale: shoulder shrug
Me: "Caleb Michael, look at me, do I look like a cow?"
Cale: His shoulders started to shrug and then he gave me a good solid head shake, "no"
Me: So many men would have been dead...

i love him.

I was looking at pictures from the first few days after the accident. I remember so clearly, the thoughts, feelings, prayers, and the smell of Cale. You might be thinking, "smell?", and yes, that's what I mean. His smell while he was in ICU, was very weird, hospitalish/something else smell. At first it was so sad, and then as days went by, it became a comfort. I have moments with Cale now, that sometimes make everything seem better, and other times, it makes my heart ache so much because I miss him.

I wanted to share this song that is so full of the Lord's promises. He is faithful!

Everything Falls-FEE

You said
You´d never leave or forsake me
When you said
This life is gonna shake me
You said
This world is gonna bring trouble on my soul
This I know

When everything falls apart
Your arms hold me together
When everything falls apart
You´re the only hope for this heart
When everything falls apart
And my strength is gone
I find you mighty and strong
You keep holding on
You keep holding on

When I see
The darkness all around me
When I see
The tragedy has found me
I still believe
Your faithful arms will never let me go
And still I know

When everything falls apart
Your arms hold me together
When everything falls apart
You´re the only hope for this heart
When everything falls apart
And my strength is gone
I find you mighty and strong
You keep holding on
You keep holding on

Sorrow may last for the night
But hope is rising with the sun
Its rising with the sun
There will be storms in this life
But I know You will overcome

It was a good day. Nothing very eventful, but all good. Cale and I are making each other laugh a lot through out each day (which I think is absolutely incredible!) and with that comes laughing for the staff too! :) He swallowed a couple more bites of pudding AND has started mouthing more words! He's done this with the word "what" a few time before, but twice now he's mouthed "hi"! Once was today to Dr. Howe (psych)! This afternoon, Cale and I sat outside for a long time during an unexpected break, the whole time I was thinking I was getting tan, until I was later told, that nope...I'm still a white girl! While I was so focused on getting tan, I was trying to get Cale to do use his lips for other words and he did several! When it was time for speech, I asked him to show off for Patricia, and he did! That's what I'm talkin' about! haha! :)
