Rolling Stones.

A rolling stone gathers no moss.

We are rolling stones. Not like THE Rolling Stones, but we are the type of rolling stones that gather no moss, constantly moving, rolling, stretching, changing and avoiding stagnation. In the past year, we've rolled so much, there is no possibility of moss growing on anyone in our family.

A year ago today, I learned that I had a large brain tumor that would have to surgically removed. That day, combined with the day we found out Miss B had Down syndrome, gave me a whole new perspective on the possibilities of life. You truly never know what is going to happen next.
That day, I couldn't see the future past my surgery date. I didn't know who I would be or what my life would be like on the other side of having someone cut into my brain. It was as if the calendar stopped on surgery day and the rest of the future was surrounded by fog.
And honestly, even if I could have seen past that day...would I have envisioned all of the things that have happened in the past year? 
Probably not.
The future is filled with an amazing amount of unknowns and possibilities--some good and some bad--but there is always something to push us a little further; something that will keep our stones rolling and make sure we keep that moss off.
In the past year...
  • I had brain surgery--during which time I had to shave my head, relearn to walk and run, and work hard to regain some sort of stamina
  • My brother got married
  • My Granddad passed away
  • Miss B went through a leukemia scare that turned out to be nothing for now, although she is still being watched closely
  • We are expecting our 4th child and I was horribly sick for the first 18 weeks
  • Dr. C got a new job, we moved to a new state, and bought a house
