In my family when we are happy for someone we always say lucky! But only in the Napoleon Dynamite voice of course. Well I am going to say “lucky” to myself. To begin I have to say I have one amazing family. My mom and dad treat me a little too good. They are so understanding of my new needs and don’t hesitate when I ask for help. I adore my brothers and sister now more than ever, they hold long conversations with me and give me endless advice that I use on a daily bases. My cousins, aunts and uncles because of them I am constantly surrounded by endless concern and support not to mention I look up to them, I am who I am today for doing so. With having so many people who love and care for me I can handle anything. The number 1 “lucky” in my life is my husband. I hate to put down all those husbands out there but I have to say that my man is as good as it gets. I think I have put Jeff through hell since the moment he met me but after being diagnosed I wouldn’t blame him if he just walked away. He put up with my disability walked by my side while I looked like an old with my walker, he pushed me in a wheel chair countless times even taking me shopping and helping me pick out clothes (ok he really picked all of them out, what can I say the guy has taste.) He helps me to walk and in the morning when walking is the hardest he carries me to the bathroom. I really could go on and on about all the wonderful things my husband does for me but I think that would be called a book. I am so proud of him and the person that he is, it makes me proud to say that he is mine.

I celebrated my 23rd birthday this March, I was able to celebrate it with my family at the Cheesecake Factory (yummy!) It was so simple yet so wonderful to be able to spend time with those who matter most in my life. When the night ended realized just how lucky I am to have so many special people love me. I was fortunate enough to have 3 little celebrations, one with the boys, a girls night out with my mom and sister and to top it off dinner with my bestie Nessa. I am truly grateful to have people in my life who lift me up and keep me going, it is because of these people my health is going to only get better.
p.s. my dad is trying to flash "23" looks more like 22
