Do you ever have one of those days where you realize or accomplish something that seemed afar off? I think today was one of those days. In the beginning of this process, the whole thought of this was long and drawn out, but now we only have 3 more rounds to go. This still seems like a lot, but knowing that the treatments get easier on Jackson make me feel a little better. As it has been before, Jackson is in for 14-32 days depending on how he responds to the chemo which started today at 6pm. What I realized today, was that in the beginning of the knowledge of Jackson and his complications, I had so little understanding of Hope, Love, Faith, and Trust. Now that we have been enjoying the laughter and love of this wonderful child, I have come to see how easy it is to get down in life's struggles and yet those darkest days in my life are still better than Jackson's. He has been an encouragement to me, and my Family. My God has opened my heart and eyes more than I ever thought would happen and I see more joy in life than ever before.
