As the homeschooling mother of four young children, Kendra is my hero! It's amazing to see God rebuilding and repairing all that was lost, though this is a painfully slow process. To get to know Kendra better, please follow her unfolding journey on her blog at Queen Of
Kendra and I have been online friends (and gotten to meet in person in 2005) since long before our stoke days, having been support for one another through infertility and high risk/bedrest pregnancy as well. It is rather surreal that we are both young stroke survivors (just 5 1/2 months apart) now, for totally different reasons! Even before her strokes, Kendra was one of my most devout and faithful encouragers. That remains all-the-more true today!
P.S. Today is Kendra's 7-month stroke-a-versary.
Today I am thankful for having a friend who is going through this journey with me. Not that I would ever want precious Kendra to suffer, but it doesn't feel quite so lonely having someone to chat (email) with every day, who personally understands the challenges and the silly-sounding victories. I cannot put into words my heartbreak over our newest commonality or the level of comfort I take in sharing our journies.
