We still have our challenges and always will. I have been having dreams again about when he was first injured. Lately I have reading some newly injured warriors' stories have really brought the journey we have been through to the forefront of my mind. I think I have really been needing to revisit where we have been so we can remember how far we have come.
This year we decided to just spend time with friends on the lake. It was a good day. We decided last year that we would throw his final Alive Day party then. It was time to move on from making it a big deal and instead, just do something small. I am still thankful every day that he is here with me. I am thankful for the men that saved his life and some gains that we thought he would never make. He has been there for me at a more emotional level lately and it is just what I need.
I am abundantly blessed.
