EDM #42 Draw something you are thankful for!

Well, that has to be the fact that we still have Jennifer with us after someone decided to drink and drive. It left her with a broken life and body that we still struggle to help her gain some more control over. Dispite a year in the hospital and all her physical disabilities she is cognitive, and a delight to be around. God has blessed her with a tremedous spirit and an amazing inner strength. She is never depressed, only determined to someday be able to be a functioning part of society again, needed and appreciated. Today we had therapy again, this is almost our 5th year of therapy, 3 times a week, we are so thankful for therapy. Therapy offers us hope, hope for tommorrow, hope for progress and hope for recovery. She struggles everyday with a body that fights her every wish. A body that no longer knows how to perform the simpilist things. But she never complains, she just keeps trying. We are still trying to get her to a place where she could take enough steps with help to get her into a public bathroom. Its amazing the things that most of us take for granted. Although this was a quick sketch and doesn't capture her very well, I managed to do it while helping the therapist work with her! God is so good, we are so blessed by her, we have so much to be thankful for today, what are you thankful for today?
