I know it's cliche' to say, "wow, it's already been __yrs.." Well, I really can't believe how fast time flies. At the same time, I hardly remember life before knowing Matt. It really does seem that he has been a part of my life forever. I love the bond we share and am happy that we have eternity to love each other, and to learn to love each other better. I love Matt more than my inadequate expression, but I always want to love him better, and be better for him. I know I make mistakes every day, but I am thankful for his sweet, forgiving nature. He lives each day in humility and grace, and accepts me as I am. I know that as the years go by, our love will grow and mature, and we will learn how to love each other better.
Some friends of ours blew this picture up into about a 24"X36" giant posterboard to hang in Matt's hospital room. He wasn't speaking yet, but gave a big smile and thumbs up. He stared at it all of the time. This picture always brings up a lot of those memories. It is a special one, and another one of those positive affirmations.
Apparently he's excited....I didn't know he could jump that high.
