On August 16th, and like every August 16th since 2008
I had treats sent to my people of the Arizona Burn Center.
Most years I ask my best friend Lindsay to deliver
the treats since she lives in Arizona. (I love you Linds!).
Because of the skillful dedication of
doctors, surgeons, nurses, therapists and staff
to me and Christian, we get to celebrate another year of life here
on this beautiful earth with our children!
My heart could never adequately describe my love and devotion to them
for their service, perseverance, patience, and persistence in our care.
I also wrote a little note to my heroes with a family photo
and I heard it hung on a wall in the break room.
There are only a handful of the same doctors, nurses, and therapists still
working in the AZBC who were there 12 years ago when we were brought in,
and they will forever be considered part of our family,
and I will forever send treats to the burn center no matter what.
and I gifted Christian a famed quote from our 2020 love song,
"WHEN YOU GIVE ME LOVE I HAVE NO FEAR" by Katie Melua.
Those words have been very happy and hopeful
for us during some of our hardest trials together.
