It is hardly a secret, that since Zoey came blazing into our world, almost 5 years ago, that our lives, all of our lives, and the directions they take, seem dependent on the ebb and flow of hers. If she is good, we are good. If she struggles, we struggle right beside her. And so it goes. Yes, we all have our independent pursuits and dreams, well, maybe everyone except myself, because now my life has forever become conjoined with hers. That does not diminish the importance or the love I have for my other children, or the love they have for each other, but we all know the truth and the truth lies within the itty-bitty 22 pound, almost 5 year old, youngest member of our family. In the end, it all comes full circle to Zoey.
Her life and her fight, from breath one, has taken us from the depths of sadness and despair, riddled with fear and uncertainty, into a place overflowing with gratitude. And while the days ahead will undoubtedly be filled with journeys into the unknown, as it stands today, watching Zoey travel through the darkness of the unfair, has enabled the rest of us to stand in the warmth of the light. And for that, our hearts overflow with gratitude.
A very Happy Thanksgiving to all of you who have found your way here today. On this day, may you be surrounded by joy and laughter and those you love.May we each pause for a moment, amongst the chaos of the day, and look with gratitude on the blessings and the miracles that encircle us, ever mindful of those who continue to walk in the darkness of uncertainty.Peace and love to you all.
