Day 9: Today I smile because...... All the family members that live in NC joined together for dinner at the rehabilitation center where my brother in law is recuperating from his "Pons" Stroke.
About 35 family members, 3 generations worth gathered for dinner to celebrate and rejoice with my brother-in-law Tom. He is making a rapid recovery. Though he has a way to go, he has come remarkably far considering the area of the brain in which the stroke occurred. With how fast life happens now days, it makes it hard to get together for big family dinners, or functions unless it is the holidays or a special occasion.
Today not only did we laugh and have a great time as we usually do when we get together, it was a time of reflection, of rejoicing and thankfulness. Our family has much to be grateful for. There is a lot to be said for the power a faith and prayer. For it is with those two things that we were all able to smile today.
What made you smile today???
