May 20th 2010-A Year Ago Today

A year ago today we heard the most devastating words you could ever hear A year ago today our world turned upside down

A year ago today I saw fear in my husband’s eyes

A year ago today a wail came from the deepest place within me

A year ago today I sobbed openly in front of strangers

A year ago today my legs wouldn’t hold my weight

A year ago today I could only ask “why”

A year ago today I fell to the darkest place

A year ago today I thought I was going to lose my very best friend

A year ago today the room was spinning

A year ago today doctor’s hung their heads in disbelief

A year ago today we were given odds we never want to hear

A year ago today life failed to make sense

A year ago today-a year ago today

A year ago today I saw determination in my husband’s eyes

A year ago today we were surrounded by love on every side

A year ago today the most important things in life became instantly clear

A year ago today our truest friends turned our frowns into smiles

A year ago today I abandoned my inhibitions

A year ago today I cherished even the difficult moments

A year ago today holding my husband’s hand had never been so sweet

A year ago today strength came from a place that I never knew existed

A year ago today we proclaimed that we will not be defeated

A year ago today we held on to truth like never before

A year ago today the light outshone the darkness

A year ago today ashes began to turn to beauty

A year ago today God was nearer to us than ever before

A year ago today-a year ago today

We thank the Lord for His abundant faithfulness to us this past year. We know that His love has never failed us & we have been amazed to watch the mountains He has moved in our lives.

We thank you for all of your love & support! Thank you for following along on this journey with us. We know the best is yet to come.

Love,

Sarah & Joel
