The everyday challenge we all encounter is to focus on what we have and what we can do. It’s easy to only focus on what we don’t have or can’t do. I’m extremely intentional about being mindful on what I have and can do.
Today I’m thankful I have amazing daughters and I can always provide a comfy chair for them to relax :)

I’m uncertain of my future and whether I’ll ever walk independently but I will keep putting one foot in front of the other.

I can’t tell you how many times people have told me “I am so sorry for what happened to you” before they even tried to get to know me. While I understand their hearts are in the right place but if they really knew me they would know I love my life. In fact, I’m thankful for the very thing they feel sorry for me about! Your physical abilities don’t reflect your happiness. In fact, it was my SCI that led me to becoming a husband to @emilysummersnorton , father, motivational speaker, CEO, author of The Seven Longest Yards, and led to having the documentary @7yardsfilm being made about my story. I’m grateful for the opportunity to inspire and help people all over the world.

God keeps stretching our hearts through adoption and fostering so @emilysummersnorton and I decided to stretch our place to allow us to continue to do more. “Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back; lengthen your cords, strengthen your stakes.”
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭54:2‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Tonight is the NFL Draft and I can’t help but think what if that would have been me if I didn’t get injured... Lol 😂 jk I had no chance since 1992. Good luck to all of the athletes that actually have a chance 🤩

@emilysummersnorton,
Wow it’s only been 1 year and we already have 5 children 👨‍👩‍👧‍👧! It’s been a roller coaster ride and right when I don’t think it can get any crazier something happens or you get another wild idea. You truly make my life so exciting and more meaningful than I could have ever imagined. I knew marrying you we would never live an “ordinary” life and you have delivered on that and some.
Thank you for all the sacrifices you make for me and our family. You have so much on your plate and you handle it better than anyone I know. Your example of love, selflessness, and faith influences not only our girls & foster children, but me as well. I’m incredibly grateful to have an awesome wife and mother to our children.
Cheers 🥂 to one year down and many more to go. I love you so much. 💕
Chris

My thoughts on finding the right one: find someone who pushes and challenges you out of your comfort zone to be the best version of yourself. ❤️
Too excited to share our love story through our upcoming book The Seven Longest Yards 📖 and documentary film @7yardsfilm 🎞
