Happy Mom on Mother’s Day

Due to the accident a year and a half ago, Grant’s mom continues to be unable to use her left arm and is very weak in her left leg. This has prevented her from doing some of her favorite things in life, such as cross-stitching, go on walks, and riding a bike. Annually, my mom would walk around 20 miles from the south side of Des Moines to the northern suburb of Ankeny, just for the fun of it. I can remember her offering to pay for my golf if I would join her on a 20-mile walk when I was a teen (I never took her up on it).

For Mother’s Day, my sisters and dad found her a great innovative bike. It seemed to be designed with her in mind. It is a trike, which allows her to balance. She can strap her feet in, since on leg is weak and hard to manage. The gears and brake is also on the right side, which is the only hand that functions. My dad sent us a few videos and she has not appeared so happy and smiley in a long time. We are very grateful for her to regain her joy of biking.

Thanks for praying for my family and her. There is still a long way to go for a full recovery. No matter what happens, we trust that God’s grace is sufficient and we hold on to the hope that heaven awaits where there are no paralyzed people or wounds.
