2 years today I almost lost my best friend (as well as by sweet daughter Mercy) in a near fatal accident ... Nicole’s car was hit from the back (by a idiot kid who was texting) and tossed into head-on traffic. I mean look at those photos. It looked so much worse in person ... an accordion.
This moment seems like yesterday to our family and has lead to years of surgery after surgery, (with hopefully the last but possibly the worst coming in June) financial struggle and overall hardship. It has changed the course of life for our family. It’s brought so much physical pain and so many tears. It has absolutely sucked, to be frank, BUT here’s the real deal ... despite all the crap, it has shown us the true face of God.
HE LIVES and was sitting in that car with Nicole, arms wrapped around her at the point of impact, protecting her. Literally. He saved her and thus He saved me.
Without Nicole I would be nothing. An empty shell. I value my life and I know what I have here. I am blessed beyond words. I have what most never find - the love of my life. Nothing brings me more joy then the sound of her laugh ... or the sparkle in her eye when I know she getting ready to drop that off color joke. 😉 Or the excitement that she brings into my daily life as she teaches me how to pursue God and hear his direction and voice. If you know Nicole, you know what I mean. I know the Lord doesn’t have favorites but if He did she would be at the top of the list. Seriously.
So today as odd as it sounds I celebrate. We have a little bit more of the road to walk but we are all alive and we are blessed and we are thankful. GOD IS GOOD. If you don’t know him, I suggest that you start a conversation ... you might be surprised what happens. He is for us and loves us deeply. •

quando ti dicono di aspettare, già odi aspettare e in più il telefono ti sta per abbandonare.
Última foto do meu barrigão... Olhando dá saudade (😰😰😰). Da época em que nos duas, éramos uma, e carregava minha Nicole pra todo canto comigo.
Foram 9 meses, de muito trabalho ( graças a Deus), algumas corridas, incontáveis azias, inúmeras lombalgias, mas muito amor.
Serei eternamente grata a Deus, por me permitir viver tudo, exatamente como aconteceu, por me dá forças para suportar o que eu achava que era insuportável, e me fazer cada dia mais forte.
É incrível ser mãe, é incrível viver de perto uma gestação, é incrível ( e extremamente dolorido 😰) parir, mas é inexplicável a sensação de ouvir o primeiro choro do maior amor da sua vida, é fantástico renascer como mãe no parto, e viver uma nova vida para sempre!
