Tough Family Celebration 2011
This week we get out the party decorations for our "Tough Family Celebration." After we began the intense battle with the health obstacles 2 years ago February 8, 2010 to be exact we decided to make the day 2-8 each year a day we would celebrate. We realized over time the faith, love, unity and surrender it took to face the battles head on as a family and battle our circumstances gaining as much insight and strength from God and each other as we could. We call it our tough family celebration in which basically we say "shew we survived." Its not a party we invite all our friends and family but something we celebrate the 3 of us with balloons, streamers, dinner, cake and laughter. We spend the evening celebrating and praising God together for bringing us through and using our trials for His glory.
Being in the hospital this weekend it was a reminder to me we are still fighting the battle but we have been victorious by the power of Christ for another year. Instead of focusing on the pain we will rejoice for the milestones, we will rejoice because we are further now than we were two years ago. My husband and I are more in love than we were 2 years ago, our daughter is growing, beautiful and intelligent. The Lord has provided financially and helped us to draw closer to Him through the unknown questions we faced many times. We are celebrating because when the world placed odds against our family for surviving the chaos, we faced it head on and chose to stand and unite as a team. I can't wait to celebrate this week, wonder what our cake should say....."Take that Satan, We did it, Cameron Warriors???" Hmmmm what do you think???
