What I'm saying here won't make sense without first reading The Greatest Day I've Ever Known.
Today marks four years to the day since the Greatest Day. Without meaning to sound melodramatic, I am grateful for having survived. But (this might strike you as odd) I am also grateful for having experienced it. I believe I never would have gotten to where I am without having gone through that place. Pain like I experienced that day has a tendency to galvanize.
The vastness of the help the universe has given me, that day and since, humbles me still.
