I wanted to share something special on my 10-yr spinal cord injury anniversary. I built it up in my head over the past couple of years. Full of anticipation, I wanted to get fancy with it today, but when I slowed down, I was quick to realize that wasn’t the way to do it.

I need to give a shout out to my gorgeous, fun-loving, hard-working and devoted wife, Sophie. I can’t imagine my life without you. How I get so damn lucky, huh?

Shout out to my loving and supporting family. I wouldn’t even have made it to year two if it weren’t for you guys and all the sacrifices you made.

Shout out to those old friends who stuck by my side, as well as the new ones who were picked up along the way. The importance of the sense of community and belonging you provided can’t be overstated.

And shout out to all the blog viewers for lending their ears and hearts throughout my journey. Since the Rehab Institute of Chicago, this outlet has easily served as my single most effective form of therapy… I’ve had to spend a lot of time cleaning up some of those earlier posts.

Thank you for the role you played, big or small, in helping me make it to this 10-yr anniversary; hard to believe. We made it, momma!

I’m thoroughly contented, and I can’t wait to see what happens next.
