Happy Birthday, Toni!

Today is my mother-in-law's 63rd birthday, a birthday we are so happy to be celebrating. The end of this month will mark two years since Toni's stroke that left us all feeling defeated and hopeless, all but certain that there would be no more birthdays to celebrate.

But Toni is far too awesome for that sort of thing, and she proved everyone (doctors included) wrong. Through her own strength and the added support, prayers and love from so many friends and family, Toni woke up and continued on - and we are so thankful to have had her around for these last two years. She has made great improvements and has been able to be with us for so many great things, including holidays, Kelley's graduation, and soon, the birth of her first grandbaby. What a miracle! Toni rocks!
