Today April 16th

Today at 0700, 4 years ago I received the gift of Life.  It would be mid day tomorrow that I would awake and learn that I was breathing on my own.  Inside my chest, two pure young lungs were becoming apart of me and my days ahead.  No longer hooked to a machine to keep me breathing I would soon be standing on my own.  Inside of me I could feel Tammy joining my life energy and I could feel her love.  To everyone have a great day and stay safe.  I still have much to think about.See More
