We had a great week enjoying the coast of California, it was uneventful as far as Sandra was concerned. We had this holiday planned before the accident and I am thankful we did because we most likely wouldn't have planned it after. It is a beautiful place to visit, great views and scenery. We went from San Francisco to San Diego doing most of the sites in between. It was a great time to connect as a family plus spend some time with friends. Although it was a great time together it was still difficult for sandra missing out on a few events (trolley cars in San Fran, beaches, kayaking etc...) and just life as it was. We are always "on" looking for accessible solutions, "where's the ramp", " is the rental car shuttle accesable", the days of winging it are on hold for a time things have to be planned out well.
This coming week will bring a few more firsts as I will be staying home from Detroit and Carla (Sandra's sister) will be going with her. We are confident things will go well but pray for a great week at rehab and continued progress. Mike
Do you see what this means—all these pioneers who blazed the way, all these veterans cheering us on? It means we'd better get on with it. Strip down, start running—and never quit! No extra spiritual fat, no parasitic sins. Keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished this race we're in. Study how he did it. Because he never lost sight of where he was headed—that exhilarating finish in and with God—he could put up with anything along the way: Cross, shame, whatever. And now he's there, in the place of honor, right alongside God. When you find yourselves flagging in your faith, go over that story again, item by item, that long litany of hostility he plowed through. That will shoot adrenaline into your souls!
