9 Years...

Today marks nine years since our accident. Nine years of living with brain injury and all the ways that it has changed our life. 

We've learned a few things, I thought I would share :)

1. Don't hit trees with cars. It's just not a good idea. 
2. Brain Injury is a world all of it's own. It's madness. 
3. Like every person, every brain injury is SO different. 
4. Humor is the best. Laugh often.
5. Before the accident, I didn't like coffee. I now enjoy it every morning.
6. Do life with people who allow for brain injury to show up- in whatever form. 
7. It's ok if some people don't want to stay in your life. 
8. Asking for help is a blessing to the one getting to serve. Ask.
9. There's a song (I know...another song...) we sing in church, which we sang this morning and I thought it was so perfect as the words left my lips:

In all my sorrows, Jesus is better
make my heart believe
In all my victories, Jesus is better
make my heart believe
Than any comfort, Jesus is better
make my heart believe
More than all riches, Jesus is better
make my heart believe
Our souls declaring, Jesus is better
make my heart believe
Our song eternal, Jesus is better
make my heart believe

The biggest thing as we've walked these last 9 years that I know I can say my heart does believe- is that Jesus really is better than it all...

  3. Dear One!! How spot on...Jesus is more. You know, one thing I love about Jesus, is He understands. These last few days I have felt incredible sadness and wanted to find a quiet place to cry. I told Father I didn't understand why, BUT, I was glad He did. I don't have to know or understand my feelings. He does, and He carries me through them. Thank you for being His mouthpiece and helping me put words to my thoughts.

    I love you and am honored to be a part of your journey,

    Marion
