On September 11th, 2004, life turned upside down for Doc and Cindy Blackmore. They had just sent their youngest child off to college and were looking forward to their empty nest when Doc was injured in a bicycle accident while on a hunting trip in the Rocky Mountains, leaving him paralyzed from the chin down and dependent on a ventilator. Their journey during the next five years was physically and emotionally difficult, but spiritually uplifting.During their journey, Cindy sent out emails to an ever-growing distribution list. What began as a way to keep friends and family updated on Doc's condition turned into a spiritual touchstone for hundreds or possibly thousands of people across the country. You will find laughter and tears in these pages. The author's prayer is that you also find faith and strength in them. It is exactly as the title indicates-a journal of their journey Cindy Gittemeier Blackmore was born in 1960 and married Darwin Blackmore in 1980. They resided in Cairo, MO, where Cindy still lives today. They had three children and were married 24 years when Darwin was injured in 2004. Together they gave many witnesses to proclaim their faith in God and to show others how God provided for them. Darwin died in 2009, five years after the accident. Cindy continues to share their story.
