Happy New Year!!!

Maybe it isn't what all of you consider to be the new year, but it is Ness's birthday and with that we will say good riddens to her past year of life!!! To recap she had three surgeries, a car totaling wreck, too many appointments with specialists to count, started radiation, and had many life changing discussions with physicians and family. Sounds pretty rough and it was, but let us not forget all of the good things we leave behind with the last year: Hurdles were placed in front of us in our relationship and we cleared them only to be more in love, Vanessa found a renewed and strengthened faith in God, she found out just how many people love her (a lot), and she became so strong. I have never had the opportunity to watch someone grow up as fast and as gracefully as she did! It was truly amazing to watch while all of these bad things kept happening and she just kept getting tougher and more grateful. When so much weight is put on a persons shoulders in such a small period of time one of two things usually happen... They get crushed or they get strong and like I said she got real strong!

So for her birthday this year I got her a Coach purse, an iTunes card, my continuously growing love, and absolutely ALL of my respect!

Also in the past year she became a fan of seafood (told you it wasn't all bad) so last night we went with her family to Joe's Crab Shack to eat some tasty crab legs! Delicious!

Thank you all for providing myself and my wife with incredible emotional support over the last few months! It has been unbelievable and we are both so grateful for all of you!
