Three years today....

Today is a day full of lots of emotions for me as a Mom.  It is hard to believe that is has been 3yrs since Jordan's surgery, which ultimately became the 1st day of her "new" normal. Looking back if you would have told me then that she would be where she is today, I would have thought you were crazy.  The best word that I can use to describe her during that 1st year was fragile,  She was fragile mentally, physically, and emotionally.  We were just talking the other day and I asked her what she had expected after surgery. Her response was "she thought she would be better right then". That response was pretty emotional for me.  This journey has been hard for her but yet she proved and continues to prove that she is one tough, strong person.
Now here we are 3yrs later and she has finished her associates degree with honors and is going on to get her Bachelor's. She wasn't going to let a brain bleed & her physical limitations stop her from dreaming and seeing those dreams become a reality! There are just not enough words to describe how inspirational she is to me on a daily basis.
So today we will celebrate life and Jordan!  PRAY FOR JORDAN!!
