what I see is a beautiful life and a story.
I think back to the time he spent in the hospital before these scars, and looking at his lifeless body lying there with all of his tubes and lines, and just wondering if he will ever come home again. Yes I had and have faith in the Lord but I also know that he sometimes takes special ones home with him. Since then I have watched him grow to a now four year old and I feel that we have been given this amazing gift of time, time to spend with him and to watch as he takes every new step and be grateful for every accomplishment he has. It also woke me up to the rest of the family in a way that I may have overlooked before. Appreciate what you have been given and cherish each and every moment...good and bad. Because even the bad can sometimes turn out good. I also am reminded of the one who lost his life so that Colton could live his....This child, whom we don't even have a name for, or the family who has made that decision to donate his organs without them this would not be possible. I also think about the surgical team preforming these miracles.....thank you just doesn't feel like strong enough words to describe how much we appreciate all of you... without all of you we would not have Colton today.
So yes when I look at those beautiful scars I'm reminded of how blessed we all are.
Your Nana loves you Colton!!
