This is an awesome story. As someone with chronic illnesses, I can relate to this story. It's nice to know that others can understand how hard everyday life is and appreciate the effort it takes to do things many take for granted. My only issue is I struggled over this line: "We don’t believe in Him so we get extra days on the calendar.” Part of my illness makes my brain foggy but after several readings, it finally sunk in that the so means in order to get extra days. (I was reading it like so meant therefore. Duh, Shann). But I believe that was all on me not your writing at all. Once I realized what you were saying, I got a huge lump in my throat and decided that was my favorite line. It is packed with wisdom and helps me understand different levels of faith and made me more aware that is a message I need to spread more often. Thank you for that.
She sounds like a wonderful person. Reminds me of Joni Eareckson Tada!
Great story! You kept my interest throughout.
Congrats Jack for your win for a story well told.
