How to Say Thank You

It's not as easy as you might think.

When hundreds of people step into your life and turn it upside down for good. When generosity exceeds the boundaries of comprehension. A thank you note just doesn't seem to cut it.

We are emerging from a period of overwhelm around here.  I think we're finally coming to terms with the fact that this really is our home and we're ready to really live in it.

And that is our ultimate thank you: accepting what we've been given by living a full, messy, shared life in this beautiful, accessible house. Singing in Collin's roll-in shower. Gluey art projects in his school room. Knocking into walls in his gait trainer. Quiet breakfasts at the wheelchair accessible kitchen island. Loud dinners in the wide-open dining room. Talking and reading on the roll-out patio.

By living and loving our own version of normal, we fill our days to the brim with gratitude -- we say our most heartfelt thank you to everyone who made this wonderful thing possible.
