On this day a year ago I was preparing Mikes dress blues and I had already made decisions at a funeral home. He hadn’t been able to speak for 6 days at that point and was showing many signs that he wasn’t going to make it much longer. The only way I can explain how I was feeling is that I was bracing myself for impact. BUT, a year later somehow he is still here. Although he has declined in many ways, comparing this exact day to that exact day one year ago, he is better. He can talk, he can walk. He is alive. Talk about a miracle! He isn’t miraculously healed, but today is a day to be thankful for.
