Thirty years ago today, I walked into the gym for gymnastics practice but left on a stretcher, never to walk again in this lifetime. An accident shortly after my arrival at practice left me paralyzed from the chest down, a C5 quadriplegic.

I just spent a fun evening celebrating with my family the life that God has given me.

It may seem strange to some to celebrate the day my life suddenly changed. What to many would be a tragedy, I give to God for His honor and glory.

Looking back over the last 30 years, I thank God for the many ways in which He has blessed me, including a loving wife and two amazing sons.
