We had an anniversary of sorts at our house. A year ago, we had experienced two of the most difficult things our family had ever faced…all within 36 hours of each other. Josh had a major car accident, and then a day and a half later, Tanner had cardiac arrest at school. Turns out he had a heart condition called CPVT. (These posts tell the story…. https://soletusknow.wordpress.com/2013/08/05/daily-prompt-challenge-green/ and https://soletusknow.wordpress.com/2013/02/14/a-breath-of-fresh-air/ )

It’s hard to believe a year has passed since that week. There are things I want to forget, but what I NEVER want to forget is the amazing gift of a second chance at life that my kids were given and that we were given as a family! I’m so grateful for every day. So at my house, early November is a reminder to Celebrate LiFe…each and every moment of it.

The above photo is of the cake we enjoyed. After all, every good celebration deserves a good cake!
