X.XXI.MMXXI

For over a year and a half my life has been provided a hospital backdrop as scenery.


Short stays turned into longer stays.


Transports went from cars driven by me to parents & friends, to ultimately EMS.


They became sprinkled with numerous nurses, orderly's, and doctors in various locations.


The playlists kept getting longer & longer to provide comfort and distractions during longer exams and tests.


Plain Band-aids were replaced with cartoon characters & movie themes to provide humor to the mundane and often painful parts.


My prayers became shorter and my faith grew deeper and bigger.


I began consuming sermons like mixtapes constantly keeping a flood of truth and encouragement in my ears to remind myself of the truth I knew to evident.


The truth that grace comforts in the most unlikely of ways.


The truth that mercy is always surprising and rendering one speechless.


The truth that love is always patient.


The truth that we can never forget to be kind nor respectful.


The truth that redemption doesn't expire.


I've spent a great deal of time over the past couple of weeks reflecting on the past year.


Reflecting on the constant that my friends (who are now family) have been.


Reflecting on all that I have gained despite the fact that it looked like constant loss was being experienced.


Reflecting on the rhythm that vulnerability is utterly exhausting but creates beautiful moments of redemption.


Reflecting that I quite possibly have the most amazing people in my life.


I wasn't the only one to experience a miracle on 10/21/2021.


This is everyone's miracle.


This is everyone's healing.


This is community, forgiveness, & unconditional love in action.



Thank you to my amazingly beautiful community for walking alongside me through this journey!
