This blog is a place for my reflections and ramblings about this journey that we call life. The journey is filled with joys and trials, with quiet and chaos, with play and work. But even with the trials, I take joy in the fact that this journey leads to my eternal home in heaven. And I am blessed to share this journey with my family, and to lead our lambs down the same path home.
Unknown to us, our son Sam was born with an Arnold Chiari Malformation. When he sustained an accidental fall as a six month old baby, the congestion from the Chiari resulted in a spinal cord injury, known as Central Cord Syndrome. Since then, Sam has also been diagnosed with scoliosis, most likely because of his uneven muscle tone and strength. Sam has made slow but steady progress toward recovery, and we are still walking that road to recovery. We have had many sorrows and trials, but also many joys and blessings. God has been faithful to us, and He is still good even if life is hard. One of the hardest things for me was the uncertainty and lack of experience anyone had with our situation. If you are walking a similar road, and would like someone to travel by your side, whether you are further along or new to this experience, please feel free to contact me.
