This is a story about hope, acceptance, and moving forward. It is a story about two people given a series of incredibly difficult circumstances and meeting those challenges head-on through their love for each other and guidance from a prayer.
The fact that the prayer came from my husband’s deceased father, Ed, only enhances our tale. My husband’s near-death experience due to a motorcycle accident and my witnessing part of it is integral to the story but in no way defines it. The belief in seeing the other side is not the essence of what we are sharing.
Whether the reader believes or not isn’t important. What is important is that one comes away with how two people facing the darkest of days, never giving up, and trusting in each other’s strengths to scale the insurmountable odds in the struggle that is survival.
May our story and Ed’s prayer bring hope to those in need.
Peace and love to all.
