...what it would be like to have a husband who could be alone in the house and still be safe. for my husband to move from the living room to the kitchen whenever he wanted. to have a husband who can walk to his dresser in the morning. to spend a night cleaning my house without feeling guilty because my husband can't entertain himself. to simply live one day without this disability.
but that's not what we have now. and we might not ever have it. and it isn't how god has chosen to show his love for ian or myself. he has chosen to show his love and mercy toward us in a life that often feels unbearable but always ends in grace. he has chosen us for even this specific day, brain injury and all, fears and uncertainties and all. and those are the moments that we have to live in. the daily grinding through a life that doesn't "feel" good or easy all the time. i think i'm starting to learn that in those moments is really where i have to be obedient and where i am going to most visibly see that this truly is from a loving father.
