This may sound corny, but my wife is by far the bravest person I have ever met. She endured an incredible operation, an emotional trauma, severe pain, the hardship that comes from every move and movement and a constant state of drowsiness.
What does she do? Smiles, laughs, asks each person who enters our room if they are having a good day, speaks positively about everything and everybody...and has not yet complained or felt sorry for herself. Her focus has been that this is the best thing in the world and she can't wait to start her new life.
She continues to touch me in ways I would have never imagined.
As I sit here in the hospital room watching her sleep, I can only reaffirm to myself how fortunate I am.
