Figuring Stuff Out

ThinkingI’ve had a lot on my mind since Sunday thinking about how CF has affected my life. It’s undeniable that it has touched every area possible: personality, geographic location, health, faith, status, and career. All in all, it’s been a very good week of mulling over these thoughts for such a profound amount of time compared to fleeting thoughts that bombard me every hour.

I don’t have it in front of me, but it read something like “Either I was going to be breathing like I hadn’t in years in a couple of days or like I never have before with my Maker tonight.”

Happy Easter everyone. He is risen!
