Strength and Grace

Some of you may have noticed that I’ve been a little off the grid of my regular circles and spheres. As has my wife Mary Grace. Some may be aware of our current situation which we are not living too publicly on social media but I wanted to just post a blurb about our current status.

In May, Mary Grace underwent her second surgery to repair her fifth brain aneurysm. This surgery was met with a couple of complications which has made her recovery much longer than originally expected. Following surgery she remained in the neuro hospital for 2 weeks and then worked very hard in a rehab hospital for another 6 weeks. Now home, she continues to work hard in outpatient therapies as well as with us in the house. And while she continues to make good progress every day, there is still a long road ahead to recovery.

In my lifetime, I’ve met many people who have overcome or are overcoming all kinds of hurdles and obstacles. I’ve met some incredibly brave, strong, and positive people who somehow continue to find the courage and the faith  to forge onward when things are difficult.  None of them can hold a candle to Mary Grace and the courage she’s displayed throughout this journey. Her outlook is incredible, her belief is strong, and she is committed to working hard to regain her strength. There are times when I honestly don’t know how she remains so positive but I wish I could bottle it and share it with the world.

Thank you for everyone’s prayers and well wishes of love and support. They are very much appreciated.
