This is how we "turn lemons into lemonade" in our marriage. 4 years ago today my wife lost her arm and eye in a freak accident. There are many challenges but she never complains or sits around asking why. I've honestly never met anyone like her, thank you for reminding me and everyone you're around that no matter what you've gone thru, it's going to be ok! I love you @laurenscruggs
