I'm alive

Life has changed so much in so little time. One day after months and months of prayer, struggle, tears, stomach aches and lengthy conversations with mom, God gave me a burning desire to eat. And so I did, and instead of guilt I felt joy! Each day gets easier and easier and I am reminded God is faithful. I could go on and on...but I think this song describes it all...

The road

I am proud to report that Nan has gained 4 pounds in about two weeks!  This LBS road that Nan and I have been  traveling for sometime has been bumpy, twisty and quite often spiraling downhill. Today the road looks less dangerous.  There are helpful guardrails in place to guide her on this journey.  She has what it takes to make it, yet the road is long .  A very long road ahead of us.  But it is a journey we are willing to take because so much ground has already been covered and conquered.  It is all adventure ahead!  I'm sure it won't all be smooth sailing, but I am encouraged, for Nan has the desire to gain weight. She wants be able to run competitively again, but mostly to feel good.  God is faithful and we have learned a lot.  My prayer is for continued guidance for the days ahead.  With Spring around the corner, I am sure there are many sunny days ahead of us.

Sisters!  Nan and Cate when they are about  8 and 9 years old.
Best of friends.
Cate and Nan, 2013, still best of friends.  They have always been there for
each other, encouraging and praying for one another.
