Day Thirty-one - Thankful

There are so many things I am thankful for. But, I think I am most thankful that I have these crazy Angry Birds to share this life with me and with Evan.

Day Thirty - Laugh

Fortunately, Evan is a happy boy who laughs a lot. Especially when he is surrounded by the people and stuffies he loves the most...

Day Twenty-nine - Blessed

We are blessed to have met so many amazing people along our journey. One of Evan's favorite people is his fiancé, Evie, who is also a stroke survivor. He proposed marriage last summer, she accepted, and he sent her a ring. We are blessed to have Evie, her family, and our CHASA family in our lives.

Day Twenty-eight - Community

I have always said how fortunate we are to have the constant support of our friends, family and extended family at Evan's daycare, Bright Ideas. While I usually think about my community giving me the support I need, I sometimes forgot how important Evan's community is. I love his Bright Ideas friends and the fact that they love him, challenge him, play with him, and support him in their own way!

Day Twenty-seven - Encouragement

On Evan's first day of track, while Evan and his friends from Kinetic Kids were running as fast as they could, the University of the Incarnate Word football team stopped practice to cheer on them on. I  love that they took time out of their schedule to encourage my son and others like him. Go Cardinals!

Day Twenty-six - Knowledge

While we have learned a ton as a stroke family, one of the things that I am most proud of is sharing our knowledge of pediatric stroke with others.

Day Twenty-five - Wish

I love this picture of Evan. It was his fourth birthday, and he loved Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. Our fabulous cake lady wanted to make the clubhouse out of Rice Krispy treats, but there was a structural problem with the ear. It didn't bother Evan one bit, and I found myself wishing he would always be as happy and easy going as he was at that party!
