I was talking to my mother in law the other day when we were driving home from my doctor's appointment with the surgeon. We were discussing Nathan and how well he is doing, despite all of his challenges that he has endured. I told her that I wouldn't change the last year except that I hated seeing Nathan suffer through so much. This quote by Neal A Maxwell, an apostle, expresses why.
"God does not begin by asking us about our ability, but only about our availability, and if we then prove our dependability, he will increase our capability." - Neal A. Maxwell
Jake and I are far from perfect parents, but I think that we have matured quite a bit this year and have been refined through this process. I never thought I would be able to care for a medically needy child, but now I can. I've also learned to become more assertive when necessary. And really, I've learned that we aren't given challenges without a way to make it through it. I think that Nathan has made a bigger impact on my life than I have on his. I just wanted to pass that along to Patsy.
