We are T minus 9 days before my parents arrive to visit! It will be the first time they've been here since my dad had his stroke at our home while visiting a little over a year ago.
We're so excited! But it's also bittersweet as there will be many firsts and many things that regardless of how much I may wish them to be, will likely never be the same. Late-night card games with effortless conversations, afternoon kayak rides, water park slides, bike rides and tinkering home projects to name a few. My heart still mourns for some of the things everyone lost that day.
However, what my dad has shown me more than anyone in my lifetime is the ability to rise again, and that rising again is in fact possible. I am so thankful for the role model I have in him. He inspires me daily.
