Things I never knew

1.  How many people have had their jaws wired shut or knew someone who did have their jaw wired shut.

2.  How much I take for granted yawning, sneezing, smiling, talking, eating, sleeping.

3.  How much it hurts to watch someone I love go through so much pain.

4.  How much I LOVE serving my family and especially Scott.

5.  How hard it is to hear of  stories in similar accidents as Scott with miracle outcomes.

6.  How even though the accident wasn’t injury-free, there are little blessings in everything.

7.  How hard it is to tell your kids when they wake up on Rachel’s fourth birthday that their Daddy had been in an cycling accident and has a bunch of owies on his face.

8.  How much strength can be given through a single prayer.

9.  How many people care about us.

10.  How so very very very grateful I am that Scott’s injuries were not worse–that everything is able to heal albeit painfully–that he is not paralyzed or worse.

  1. Oh Sarah, that was so sweet. I bet this has been so difficult for all of you. I cannot even imagine everything you all have had to go through. We are glad that the recovery is going well. Josh will probably call soon to try make him laugh…although that’s probably not a good thing right now. How is work going for him? I hope it is getting better.

  2. I have been reminded how much each and every member of my family means to me. If anyone was missing, it would leave a huge hole. To have anyone injured or suffering also makes us all suffer. I love all of you very deeply.

  3. Sarah,
    I loved your sweet post. We have all been praying for you and Scott. Hope things get better soon. You are right, I do take smiling and yawning for granted.

  4. Sarah, I had no idea! I hope that Scott is doing all right. Please let me know if there’s anything I can do for your family. You’ll be in our prayers!
