“Some people are walking around with full use of their bodies and they’re more paralyzed than I am.” ~ Christopher Reeve
Let’s face it, the odds are that most of us will encounter illness or injury in our lives, and the odds go up as we get older.
Besides staying as healthy as we possibly can, how can we insure that our relationships are strong enough to weather whatever comes our way?
Today’s interview is a refreshing and powerful look at how a couple can choose to handle a significant trauma together. You’ll hear just a little background noise toward the end as Rachelle and Chris’s dogs Peaty and Roger sneak into the interview with their favorite chew toys.
