God never forgot us.

When I blog, I usually keep it light. Mainly because that's just who I am, but also I think it's how I cope.

I have a tendency to get bogged down and overwhelmed with the ideas of problems, or things that might go wrong. So my big girl way to cope? IGNORE IT. Make light of it. But mainly, ignore it.

So when my mother-in-law told us that she was going to write a book about Paul's life and hoped we would help her with the details, I knew I would have to go back "there" and actually dwell on the dark times. NO IGNORING IT.

For years, our lives were very dark.

For years, I thought God forgot us.

And reliving those times while Pam wrote the book, were both hard and cathartic.

But this isn't my story to tell, this is Pam's story, and I told her that I would be happy to post a link to her book here,

But let me end with this:  God never forgot us, and I know He never will.

Thanks daughter-in-love! You and Paul are a huge testimony to me. Thanks for going back with me. But to set things straight - Paul asked me to write it, but for 1 1/2 yrs I told him no. I didn't want to go back either, but then the Lord convicted me to write the story. And, that's the rest of the story. :)

Seeing pictures of Paul that thin reminds me of when Grayson was at his sickest with ulcerative colitis. He is 6'2" tall, and he got down to 134 pounds ... he was literally skin and bones. When they admitted him to the hospital, the doctors told me he was too sick for a colostomy, that he wouldn't make it through the surgery. Ohhh, it was a scary time. But you are right! The Lord never left our sides, either. We are indeed blessed. :-)
