While writing a friend yesterday, I said something that I thought I should share with all of the wonderful people who have been supporting us throughout this difficult journey. I may have mentioned it here and there, but the importance of calling it out on its own is terribly important to me.
As I start to feel a little better, I can't help but feel an overwhelming amount of gratitude for all of the support and love that I have received along the way. On my most difficult days, the sense that I have people backing me up helps to take that first step in the morning.
On my best days, the first things that I start to think about are all of the people that I want to run out and thank. It's been increasingly difficult to not rush myself when there are so many people to thank. My mind is filled with the urge to visit so many people, and play catch up on the things that I have been unable to do. To be a friend back, and to make the effort to focus on the life of my friends and family, not this disease.
Please know that your love and support has meant the world to me and Brad. We are terribly grateful and love you all so very much.
