Things I am grateful for... Family

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Immediate Home Solutions

I am most thankful for my family, especially my wife, Karyn who we just celebrated 17 years of marriage to yesterday.  We dated in high school and met up many years later.  This is the video that I had made for her 7 years ago.  

It has been her strength as well as my kids that have kept me going.  Many of you know of some of the trials that I have had to go through: HERE

What many of you don’t know is that I have gone through a triple hernia operation that was supposed to be an overnight stay that wound up being 7 days long because of the complications that stemmed from the car accident.  A few years later, I went through another 10 stint in the hospital because of brain meningitis.

Without the love and support of my family, I don’t know if I really would have made it through.  It was a tough road and their love and support of this series of unfortunate events would be difficult for any family, especially on my wife.  Here is a picture from a few days ago of all of us

Family

I have much to be thankful for, but the most is them.  They have been there for me so much that through the years that as I write this my eyes are misting up.

 

The kids are growing up fast and two of them are young adults now.  All of them in their own way have been instumental in my healing.

You have a beautiful family. I'm happy you have their love and support - without our families life would be pretty lonely. Hope you stay healthy!
