Every April we have a family retreat for whoever can make it. It is always nice to get together and spend some time together. The kids have fun playing together and us adults sit around eating and drinking. This year was kinda hard for me because I can no longer eat and drink. I love all the food and snacks that are always available. My inability to speak clearly, makes engaging in meaningful conversation very difficult. But I am blessed to have family surrounding me with understanding, love, prayers, and support. I appreciate family and friends so much more now than ever. Most of all, I know God loves me and he will be with me through every phase of this journey.
