Today will forever be a bittersweet pill for me to swallow. I lost my father 11 years ago after his battle with cancer. I am so thankful for the 23 years I got to have him as a part of my life. He taught me so much, a big thing being to find what I love and do that. I found what I love and I’m doing that. I hope I’m making you proud. The sweet part of today was having my niece born 5 years ago. You make me smile just thinking about you, I know that Grandpa Beal is smiling too. You have enriched my life so much just being here. Being in a wheelchair ain’t no thing to you either, thanks for that. No matter what, I’m going to swallow this pill life has given me.
