Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from our family to yours! This year has been tough. Emotionally and physically we are exhausted. I’ve always been a dreamer and goal setter and honestly, this year I felt as though I forgot how to do those things. It’s been a year of survival. Mikah is doing so well and looks so good but still everyday it is filled up with a medicine schedule, worrying about relapse, keeping track of his counts to make sure he is okay to be around people and in school. On top of that we are trying to help the other kids with their schooling and extra-curriculum activities. Also making sure they are getting all of their emotional needs met. Life goes on and really doesn’t stop even when all you really want to do is hide under a blanket. What I’ve learned is that trying to hide gets you no where especially when you are in a dark place. My therapy in someways is sharing our story. I have people tell me all the time that even though they may not always reach out, they appreciate being able to keep up with our family and knowing how and what to pray for. I can’t thank you, our friends and family, enough for helping us stay above the water in this last year. We are so blessed to know that so many of you are walking along side of us in this journey. We know God is with us and before us in all situations. I’m looking forward to this new year. Thank you for your friendship, your encouragement, and your prayers. Xoxo
