What a powerful training!! We can't thank you enough.

When our plane landed in Nashville, we were met with a barrage of texts and voicemails: our eldest had been in a bike wreck and sustained significant injuries. The doctor told me as we were taxiing to the terminal that both arms were broken and they were awaiting brain and neck scan results from neuro. It was a harrowing Uber ride to the hospital! What I reflect on most interestingly, and why I am telling you this story, is to recount the mental conversation I was having with myself during that car ride. I had spent a couple of hours reading 13 Things Mentally Strong People Don't Do on the plane ride back. I immediately put into practice some long-time practiced breathing techniques and found myself going through the bullet points in the book I had just read, as I was begging and pleading in prayer for him to be ok.

We have a long road ahead of healing, but PRAISE THE LORD the scans are clear - no permanent damage. He will require hands-on assistance for the next 8-12 weeks, but this is a perfect opportunity for him to win the mental battle. We had a long talk with him about it before he stepped foot out of the car back in to normal life. I don't know that my words of wisdom and advice to him would have been so clear and concise had we not just spent the last few days with y'all.

Your reach is further than you can imagine. His community will be watching him as he learns to be the mechanic of his own mind and as he battles his pride and frustration over needing help. So...THANK YOU.
