No matter what

The other night, after the babies were in bed, Andy and I were up talking. It was one of those talks we have had a thousand times. "What are we going to do? What are our options? What treatments can we do?" We expressed our concerns...at one point I broke down and started crying. I just want to get better I said. I am so tired...I want to live. Andy said he knew. He wanted all of the same things I did.
After a bit Andy said, "We already know Sarah, no matter what we won't give up. No matter what happens we will keep going, no matter what, we will move forward. We will do our best. We will keep going even if it is hard...We will keep going." My tears flowed freely, and I was overwhelmed with love and gratitude for this man. Who had such great faith in me, in us...in God. When times are difficult he reminds me of what we have...No matter what we will never give up. No matter what.

Your example, especially this week, to me, is amazing. I came here today, truly, to be uplifted...to find a way to move on with my own terrible trial in my life. This time involving a member of my family who tried to take her own life but failed. I just want to slap her, scream at her, rub her nose in life, but I realize, I can't. Everyone has to find within themselves the will to fight and live to the bitter end. You have that Sarah and I hope and pray for you and your family often that you get the miracle that you seek. I am so thankful to have 'met' you in this life and to have your example of strength. You are amazing. Keep trying! Don't give up! Ever.
