One Year Ago Today...

At this time, exactly one year ago, Pete and I had said goodbye to Forester as they wheeled him away to the OR and we settled in the waiting room.  It was going to be 8 hours until we'd see him again.  It was going to be a long day.  I just knew every minute was going to tick by so slowly.  And then, our family showed up.  Our family by blood and our family in Christ.  They took over a corner of the waiting room, they brought coffee, breakfast, snacks and lunch! But the absolute greatest gift was fellowship and the love of Jesus. Believe it or not, we had fun that day! Everyone kept us distracted.  We talked of the mundane and laughed together.  Pete and I were amazed that the time really did go by quickly. You who were with us that day were the hands and feet of Jesus to us and we are forever grateful and will never forget those moments.
As we arrived at the year anniversary of Forester's diagnosis yesterday Pete had planned to write a post.  But, it was a crazy busy day and time just didn't allow for it.  There is so much to say but I will refrain and let Pete tell you in his own words.  Stay tuned. :-)

We are so thankful to God for all the miracles he has done this year!!
