Drake and I have spent the last week at a ranch in Colorado. It was a time set aside to rest and rejuvenate; we enjoyed afternoon naps, floating in the hot springs, and relaxing massages.
We also had the chance to do some things we’ve never done or have only done once or twice before: fly fishing, driving a skid loader, planting a tree, riding ATVs, playing in cement and horseback riding.
These out of the ordinary experiences are a sweet reminder that, though our lives have been filled with deep sorrow and can often feel bleak, there are still many new things to enjoy and experience this side of heaven.
In the last year I have often felt like I’m dying, but I don’t want it to keep me from living.
