Today is September 17, 2009. Today is the 8 year anniversary of Natalie’s brain injury. If you don’t know Natalie’s story than hop over to her site and read about it.
I wanted to take a moment and say a few things about Natalie. First, she is precious to me and I love her with my whole heart! I absolutely hate that her life is like it is. She has taught me so much. She brings such joy to our family. Here are some thoughts that come to mind,
you make me laugh when you laugh
you have more hair product than I do girly!
you are such a trooper, going through all the things you do
I know that you love Jesus
you are a testament to God’s love
you are the sweetest thing in the world and others fall head over heals with you within minutes of meeting you
your smile lights up a room
you are a GIFT
I go through agony when I know you are in pain and I can’t fix it
you are part of a bigger plan designed by Christ, be proud of it!
you are my cuddle bug, you always have been and always will be
I treasure each day I have with you
I trust that Jesus has a destiny for you and I can’t wait to see it come full circle
I so anticipate the day that we meet in heaven and you extend your arms and say “hi Mom”, GLORY!! We are gonna be singing and praising the Mighty One!
I would give up EVERYTHING to have you healed and out of pain!
YOU BLESS ME! I love you
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.
You run this race because your reward awaits you! I am proud and honored to be your mom.
