This entry is long over due. I am dedicating this entry to all of our friends and family. Scott and I feel truly blessed to have such supportive family and friends. We certainly could not do what we do everyday if it wasn't for all of you. Just knowing that we are in every one's thoughts and prayers helps us to lift our chins and get through another day. So many of you have demonstrated such tremendous acts of kindness and we are humbled by all of them. We definitely feel loved by all of you.
We appreciate that no one has ever given up on us. When Sam was first born I was in a very dark place. I wanted to take my child and hide in a closet some where. I didn't want to see anyone and certainly did not want to talk to anyone. And those of you that I did reach out to came running to me. And those of you I didn't stood back and waited patiently for the word. Sometimes just standing back and being patient takes more effort than actually doing something. I acknowledged that.
Some days I am just so positive and some days I am so negative and some days I am in between. On the very negative days I pray that god gives me the strength to get through those moments. And then a tremendous gesture from one of you let's us know that we are not alone. Sunday I was having a little bit of a down day. Scott's parents came over and brought lunch from my favorite place. I worked at this restaurant through high school and College. When David (the owner) found out that the food was for us he insisted that he treat because he knew how hard it would be for Scott and I to go there. This act of kindness touched us so deeply. It let's us know we are not alone. It reminds us that no matter how hard our struggles are you all are holding our hands through each and every day. The love that you all have for us is so incredible it helps carry us through each moment with hope and with out fear. So on behalf of Scott, Sam and myself we say thank you all so very much!!!
