As I was thinking about what to write about today I started thinking about how lucky I am to have the people that I do in my life. Without my wife and the rest of my family I couldn’t get through all of this. It’s too easy to get consumed with our own selves and not see everything that our spouses, parents, children, and friends do for us, and for all that I’m very grateful. Sometimes we get lost in everything that’s going on and don’t stop to say “thanks for everything you do”, to those most important to us. So thanks for everything you do!!! What we need to think about is how much they have given up in their lives to help us in our times of need.

As I write this I find myself speechless!! If you get the chance Google – Father and Son iron man. Your looking for Dick & Rick Hoyt. What an amazing amount of love and dedication that he has to his son. Here is a man who put his own needs and wants aside and puts everything he has into his son!! Now stop for a second and think about your situation. Are you suffering from a disability? Is there someone involved in your life that cares for you or supports you day in day out? Then stop for just one minute and think of the sacrifices they’ve made in order to help you!

It doesn’t take much for us to say thanks, but its remembering to stop and take the time to do it that we need to work on. I have a family around me that makes all of this so much easier to handle than I could ever imagine. It’s all the little things that my wife has to do day to day that makes things easier. She’s the glue that holds everything together, and that can become overbearing and hard to take. It takes a special kind of a person to be able to do that. What I find most amazing though is that things are done with a smile and an attitude like no other. You will very seldom see anything negative coming from her. She is a truly a incredible person and I consider myself the most blessed husband ever.

I wouldn’t be able to get through each day without the support that I get from my wife each day. I can be having a really bad day, and sometimes it’s just words of encouragement from her that keep me going. It’s the small things like this that make such a big impact!! If you don’t have anyone in your life that’s helping you through this tough time in your life, then just know that your not alone. God is with you and will help you get through any challenge that you face.
