HERE WE ARE! Have you missed us??

Wow, in the nearly 6 years since my stroke, this is the LONGEST period of not sharing on our blog. I hope none of you were waiting on the edge of your seats! In this new season, post-aneurysm, we have been busy, but busy with things that are NOT so health-related. We’ve been traveling and speaking to diverse and wonderful audiences, and going to classroom open houses and LEGO movies on opening weekend and making s'mores (more than once)

This is also the LONGEST stretch since my stroke that I have not been to the doctor. It won’t last forever, I’m sure, but for now, it’s been a wonderful break.

BUT YAY TEAM WOLF--- no time to write means something very good (to us, anyway).  It means we are just too busy living life to write about it.  We are not too busy to INSTAGRAM from our phones however, (essentially “micro-blogging”) and thus we are still savoring and still sharing, our precious moments.  It feels good to us.

I had a revelation a while ago after reading this blog entry. We LIKE to live out loud. There's nothing wrong with that and there's nothing wrong with the opposite of that. When I taste good food, I want everyone I love in the whole world to eat it. When I hear a good song, I blast off an email to 1,000 friends to listen to it. Even though I am from small town GA and "we don't air the dirty laundry" and always sweep the yucky stuff under our proverbial rug, I learned after the stroke that I'm called to live very differently than that. (I'm so glad my 86 year old grandmother in GA doesn't have a computer to see this!)

In case you didn't know, I had a really bad August through early December of this past year. After a painful screw removal surgery, I fell out of bed and had to have stitches, and then I had to have that pesky brain aneurysm removed. It was all pretty terrible honestly, and wrought with much deeper, more painful issues than just the physical, medical recoveries. I think Jay and I were in a bit of a fog since Summer 2012 (when I severely broke my leg) until fairly recently, but I’m so grateful to say that IT HAS LIFTED!!!

Now, we are in a season enjoying the profound beauty of our lives and our ministry Hope Heals. Our hearts are full of gratitude for all that the Lord is working. Thanks for joining us, friends. More to come...
