Colossians 3:12-14 NKJV

"Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection."

Family and Friends

Mom: Even though she always has a million things to do, she always has time for me. She stayed in the room with me during my lumbar puncture. She organizes all of my appointments and drives me to and from them (no small feat by any means!). She helps me with my IV protocol even though every time she sees the catheter it breaks her heart. She throws me into 5 minute laughing fits. In fact, she has a way of making everyone around her smile. There is so much more. Really, what means the most is a compilation of all the little things she does that makes each day that much easier to not just go through, but enjoy. Thank you Mom
Psalm 100:5

Dad: Who else is such a put-together, keep-calm advocate in whatever situation? Who knew that the man disgusted by needles would be by my side while I had a series of injections in my neck? Who other than he would take me wherever I needed to go, be it two hours away by car or five hours away by plane (an interesting adventure!). He ensures that my progress is continuously becoming more efficient and effective. His work for my journey will provide several others with better options in theirs. Whatever happens, I can always count on my Dad to find a way, and that stability is a rock in even the most difficult moments. Thank you Dad
Psalm 91:4

AS: A connection to reality, a breath outside this crazy illness, a picture of love. Gentle as a lamb with me, fierce as a lion for me. Now is a time of her life where she has so much before her, and she selflessly chooses to spend a lot of her energy helping me. How many times has she stopped me in my tracks to prevent me more pain? Anyone who knows my sister knows that she is not a pushy person. Yet, she asserts her authority to protect me, and somehow she is right every single time. Her thoughtful insights enlighten all those around her, be it in her elegantly simple solutions or a sudden realization of a new hope. Thank you
Psalm 23:6

Grandparents: Your support, even across hemispheres, has been monumental. My grandmother, a fellow fan of online shopping, reading, and food. My grandfather, who came all the way from Australia to see a high school play and graduation. Your love for us all knows not the boundaries of the oceans. You are always with us in spirit when not in person. Thank you
Mark 12:33

All my Family and Friends: Your prayers and support remind me of God’s mercy and love! Every visit, every text, every card brings joy. You all have done much for me. This includes, but is by no means a complete list: leading me to the right health care providers, spending time with me even if for just a short while, and showing me reminders of God’s miracles. Thank you all
Psalm 117:2
…..to A and K: You are a light — that special situation where friends’ souls resonate in sync with each other. Your unique perspectives and perseverance undoubtedly help me heal. Talking to you is always fun and uplifting. I cannot wait to get on the track, geek out, cook cool food, explore strange places, and so much more with you! I don’t know how to express gratitude for the incredible support you have so generously been. I wish you the best in your beautiful journey together. May your dreams come true. Thank you
1 Thessalonians 1:2-3
…..J: You somehow always figure out how to make me laugh. You are undoubtedly a ray of sunshine. We have been sister-friends for officially a very long time now. You have been a such blessing, sticking by me through thick and thin. Here’s to lifetimes’ more friendship and adventures. With much love from me, one third of our two, to you, another third of our two. Thank you
Proverbs 17:17
