Day 05 – A picture of your favorite memory

My sister got married in April of last year, 3 months after the earthquake hit our homeland Haiti. My father was injured during the earthquake and was hospitalized for two months. My sister and her fiance wanted to postpone the wedding, because of everything that was going on, but my parents disagreed. They wanted her to continue with her plans and go through with the wedding. My father had to go to therapy to learn how to walk all over again, because he had surgery in his hips. I remember being in therapy with him, and he would tell me to be his translator every single time that he had his therapy sessions, because he wanted the therapist to know that his older daughter was getting married in a month and he had to walk her down the aisle. Although he now uses a cane,my father had the opportunity to walk my sister, his daughter  down the aisle like he wanted to. It was a very special day for me and my family, and is perhaps my favorite memory.  seeing how far my dad came from laying on that hospital bed after being under rubbles, but God’s grace and his motivation got him to share this special day with his family.
