4 years.

On 02/10/14 we celebrated Cale's 4th alive day! 

I've been attempting to post since that night but this whole pregnancy thing wipes out all energy. Over the last week and half my get-up-and-go has been zapped. 

Sunday night as Cale and I went to bed, I shared with him about that night 4 years ago…and then of course we talked about what happened the next day. When I woke up Monday morning the song It is Well with my Soul came to mind. We had just sang it at church on Sunday and I thought it was a perfect song the next morning. 

How often in the midst of a trial can we actually sing and mean that it's well with our soul? 

Lots of different emotions always bubble to the surface but joy is what surpasses them all. It's been like that every year and I pray that it continues to be that way. I want my heart to truly celebrate Cale's life and the full gift it is. I don't want to be held back by what was and what is…rather, rejoice for all of what is! We have so much to be thankful for…even though I often say that brain injury just plain ol' sucks. That doesn't make our whole life terrible though…! 

Here's the last 4 years-be blessed as I know we are!

We're super excited to see the changes over the year to come! Thank you for continuing this crazy  journey with us!! 


  1. It has been a privllage to see you walk this out and grow and triumph love you guys !!!!!((())) Hugs

  2. My Dear Kathleen!! I recognize some of the pictures from your past blog entries. That was fun. Thank you for including me in your journey.
    Seeing these reminders of how Father has carried you, reminds me to remember how far Father has carried me. Thank you for that.
    He has wondrous things in store for your sweet family.
    I love you.

  3. I couldn't see the photos (or videos) at this time for some reason but maybe they'll come through later! I'm sure it will be a joy to see them and rejoice with you.

    1. Wow...finally could see the videos with the Praise God!

  4. Thank you for your encouraging posts! My husband had a stroke three years ago, and we celebrate his "survival day" every year. I'm still working on finding joy in all of it - sometimes God gives it freely, and sometimes I have to work for it! God bless you! Check out my blog some time - I'm sure we have some similar stories.

  5. Just checking on you... hope all is going well in your life!
