    I love this. Two days after Christmas, my husband was diagnosed with MS and has been fighting for his life since then. Since then we have had so many incredible miracles. This trial has pushed everyone surrounding Keith to do and BE better. Our own tiny children have changed incredibly!!!! I love Ralphie’s take on life and would have to totally agree! I feel like our dreams have had to change, but they have become even BETTER ones! If you have a moment to chat sometime, I would love to do 3 take aways!!!! (Sorry to fan girl! Lol) But I have some pretty sweet stories and would LOVE the opportunity to testify of a awesome and loving God and Savior!!!! Ps. If you want to find me on facebook, you can see a visual of some of our journey 🙂
