I want to say thank you to all of you incredibly thoughtful and compassionate people. This week has been one of the hardest in our lives, especially for me as a Father. I keep going over the accident in my head wondering what I did wrong, and what I could have done to prevent it. Its been a mentally exhausting week. Thankfully Scarlett has bounced back so quick, and her spirit has been resilient! How blessed we are!
I am grateful that she has her three sisters to look out for her and to make her feel comfortable. It didn’t take her long to get back into her routine as the girls didn’t really give her a choice. At first, Ashley and I were walking on eggshells thinking the girls were going to grab her finger or rough her up, but that really wasn’t the case. Evie was very curious about it in the beginning, but I know that’s because they are so close. After the initial curiosity, they have all been like they always were, peas in a pod. I am grateful for that.
I am extremely grateful for friends and family that were there Sunday night for us, and throughout this week. What a blessing it is to live close to loved ones who you can depend on through anything. Family is everything.
I am grateful to live in a day and age where modern medicine and those who practice it are at our fingertips. The doctors and nurses took extremely good care of our little angel, and her finger is probably saved because of their knowledge and practice. How grateful again we are for medicine!
I am especially grateful for all of you and your prayers. Once again we see the power of prayer that comes from sincere hearts. Your prayers, messages, gifts, and well wishes have been extremely generous and appreciated. Scarlett has been spoiled, and a few of you have even gone to lengths of spoiling her sisters too! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for caring so tremendously about my family. Again I am touched by the compassion of the people in this world. Although I am touched, I am not surprised.
Lastly, I am thankful for my Savior Jesus Christ and for his atonement. The knowledge of his sacrifice for all mankind puts our little Scarlett’s injury into perspective. The agony and pain that she endured, and we endured as parents gave us a small glimpse of what our savior has done for us. How grateful I am for that knowledge.
Thank you again for loving our family and for showing us that love continually. We truly love and appreciate all of you!
