An Oak and a Diamond

"When you long for life with out difficulties, remind yourself that great oaks grow strong in contrary winds and diamonds are formed under great pressure" -Peter Marshall

Yesterday was such a great day. I honestly didn't even think about the fact that it might be hard because it's our first Thanksgiving since the accident. I was with Cale and that made me happy. I realized late last night, that there are so many reasons it could have been a really hard day for me. Thank you so much everyone that was praying for us! It was a huge blessing to truly have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I was so mixed up all day on what day it was. It didn't feel like a Friday at all! Cale had OT, Speech, and PT and then we were free to hang out at the Fisher House! :)

I'm so excited for what's happening in Cale. He has been talking like crazy and asking question about things. I'm doing a horrible job at writing everything down like I said I would when he started talking, because there are so many things! Today when we got to my room, Cale said he was sad. K: "Why are you sad?" C: "I'm here" K: "You in my room makes you sad?!" C: "No." K: "Why are you sad?" C: "I'm here in California"-WHAT?! He has not been able to recognize that he's here in CA yet! If asked, he always says WA or he doesn't know. Sometimes when given a choice of a few places, he'll pick CA, but not very often. It's slow, but things are definitely happening! We might be going through muck right now, but I know there is glory ahead!!

If Cale and I were turkeys, this would be us :)
