My 5th Anniversary

It's exactly 5 years ago today that our lives changed dramatically.  I got sick and was diagnosed with PDE in Aug 2006.  But this post is a celebration!  Because of lots of prayers, a loving family, and a great doctor, I have thrived despite this nasty disease.  I am a miracle!  And that is definitely worth rejoicing!

Smiling and thanking God for a wonderful life!
It would be great to throw a real party, but we all live too far away.  So if your parents will allow it, please enjoy a cookie (or two), a walk, some playtime, or a good nap in my honor.
