Life is awful…

I love this beautiful quote.

Life is amazing.  And then it’s awful.  And then it’s amazing again.  And in between the amazing and awful it’s ordinary, and mundane, and routine.  Breathe in the amazing, hold on through the awful, and relax and exhale during the ordinary.  That’s just living heartbreaking, soul-healing, amazing, awful, ordinary life.  And it’s breathtakingly beautiful.

L.R. Knost

That is so amazingly true. So many parts of life are truly breathtaking and beautiful, while some are so awful that they forever change us.  The best part is when we hold on through the most heartbreaking moments to see the light.  The extroindary calm that comes after that raging storm.  Then you see the amazing parts of life that can truly shape us into beautiful beings.
This man right here has a very special place in my heart, along with these two beautiful and amazing children.  It’s been an extremely tough year for all of us. It has been full of so many trials and trying moments. We’ve been through the awful.  I’m hoping that the best is yet to come.

We’ve both experienced extreme heartache and loss, along with a few amazing miracles. One was finding each other, the other was that he’s still here from this wreck. There’s only one reason he made it; the Lord has a plan.  His time here, it’s not over. I’ll forever be grateful for that.  Forever grateful to be shown first hand the real beauty that life holds for all of us.  I’m also thankful to know how temporary that beautiful can be. Life is so fragile. It can change in a second.

On Tuesday, March 15, Bryan was in a very serious motorcycle crash. He was getting on the freeway and he took the corner and hit some loose gravel, and his bike started to wobble, barley missed a semi and flipped about 10 times. He was thrown off the bike and into the median, where he was knocked unconscious for quite awhile. They life flighted him to Tucson, Arizona to a trauma unit, where he stayed for a full week, which was very expensive. He has a dislocated left shoulder, broken pelvis, and a bone in his back that is broken, traumatic brain injury and some bleeding around the brain.
He is so extremely lucky to be alive and here with these two wonderful kids of his. There was nothing left of his bike. He will be out of work for quite awhile, probably a few months. He’ll have to do some physical therapy to get back to walking normal and to where he can go back to work.

So many blessings and tiny miracles have happened in the last month.  He was so lucky to come away from this wreck with the ability to walk.  Bryan definitely had someone watching over him, and protecting him. Good thing, because he is very much loved and still needed here in this life. His time is not up!

It will be quite a while before he’s fully recovered, and he’s taking care of these two beautiful kiddos.  Any help at all would be greatly appreciated. #gofundme.
