For Better

For better and for worst. We said those words almost 11 years ago in the sand in Jamaica. I never dreamed we would walk down the path we have been on for the past 2 years. He has stood by me for now our fourth ankle surgery. He has learned how to do wound care, medication rotation, ice, elevation and he can even handle endless tears. He has pushed me when I wanted to give up. The day I fell will be a day I will always remember. The face I will remember will be his. He walked around the corner of the house and looked at my mangled foot and immediately dropped to his knees beside me. He has been there ever since. Sometimes on his knees caring for me or our kids. Sometimes on his knees praying for healing. Has it been hard? Yes. Has it put strains on our marriage? Yes. Has it made us crazy at times? Yes. Has God used it to change us? Yes. I am thankful for the yuck. I am thankful for the pain. I am thankful for the bumpy road on crutches and wheelchairs. I am thankful for the soul mate that said "I DO" and I am thankful for many more years of long walks with our four feet!
