I have had a lot of people tell me lately how courageous I am. Many people have said "I could never do what you are doing". Well, yes you could. All of us, when faced with something unimaginable, can not only face it but look it in the eyes and understand what needs to happen. Sometimes it feels like I am looking in from the outside and this really isn't happening to me - but it is. It is happening to me, and my family, and in some way it is happening to you too. I think it is all about how you look at it, how you view the situation, that effects the outcome. I am not courageous, I am not brave. I have to do this, I don't have a choice. My strength comes from God and family and friends. There is something pretty humbling about being stripped of your outer shell and you are left exposed and weak. It is at this point that you realize that we are all just people, normal everyday people, trying to get along in this world and we are nothing without each other.
