March 9, 2011

March 9 was my birthday. I am grateful for the gift of another year. Whether you are young or older, every day is a gift from God. My birthday was a great day. All the birthday wishes I received on facebook along with the tons of cards I got made me feel special and loved. I am so thankful or the love, prayers and support everyone has shown to Emy and me in our difficult journey with ASL. You all are truly a blessing God has given us. I am humbled by the outpouring of love displayed to me today. Thank you!
I would like to express my sincere thanks to the wonderful caregivers God has blessed us with. Irina is a special person with a heart of gold. She has a sweet caring spirit and is so positive about everything. She is very patient with me when I try to speak. Sometimes I think can read my mind and knows what I need before I even ask. She's also good for Emy. She provides her with encouragement and support. Not just a caregiver for me but also a true friend to
Emy. Trinity is one of the other caregivers. She does a good job as well with a light hearted attitude.
And then there's my wife and my sons and their wives who also take good care of me. I could not do this journey without them. I am truly blessed and I love each one one of them. I don't know what this year will hold for me but I know who holds the future and that's all that matters.
