This picture epitomizes my life the last 10 months. My husband and I fell into such a deep, dark hole, that at times there seemed to be no light at the end of the tunnel. But we fought our way back, separately and together, the light continued to grow with each passing day.

Shorty has been back home for almost four weeks now. The changes in him are phenomenal. He smiles, he jokes, he has energy, he's content, he's happy - something I didn't think would ever be possible. He's happy. It may seem a small thing, but when you've been with someone for almost 27 years and, during that entire time he has never been truly happy, it's . . . it's indescribable.

I was reading an article of an interview with Sharon Stone in AARP Magazine today while waiting for my counseling appointment to begin. She said, "I thank God every day for what he has given me, and I thank Him for what he has taken away." This struck me at my very core. Shorty and I have lost a lot, but we have gained so much more! I have my husband and my friend back, we have a rejuvenated life together, we have each other.

I am so very proud of my husband and how far he has come. God has truly, truly blessed us.

Psalm 27:1-3
The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war rise up against me, yet I will be confident.
