“I’ll Run with You”

 

The song “I’ll Run with you” is one of my favorites that is sung by Broken Vessels.  When I first heard it, I knew I wanted to make a video of some of my favorite pics of the boys. 
So, with permission to use the song, I put this together to have as a reminder that we may all limp up to the gate but we’ll run on the other side! This is such a true testament of what we long.
When this video was made, It was unknown at the time that Masa/Crash syndrome would later become L1cam Syndrome.  It is the same diagnosis.

 

 

 

About Tonya Aycock

Hi, my name is Tonya. I am a wife and mom of two children (Brandon & Brently). I am a born again Christian. My passion is raising awareness for my boys and making sure they have the very best that I can give them. I love singing. I was in a Southern Gospel Group for about three years, and I enjoyed every minute of it. I think most of all, besides the singing, I enjoyed meeting people and sharing my testimony of how God has brought me through. I love playing guitar and hearing my sweet husband play music and sing to our boys. I enjoy making crafts and designing floral arrangements. I love camping. I am always up for a new adventure! I enjoy working in my yard and anything outdoors. I love my home. I like taking pictures of God’s beautiful creation. The hummingbirds, Canadian geese, turtles, and deer are beautiful! I never dreamed that I would enjoy the country as much as I do. I have always been a city kind of girl, so let’s just say I am adjusting to the country's life well. Haha! Another exciting thing about my husband and myself is that we have always wanted to open a restaurant. Maybe one day… who knows…. I created this blog to share the in’s and out’s of daily living of being a mom of children with special needs, how life can change in an instant, losing a child, finding real friendships that live the same kind of life that I do that truly understand, and much more. I love to talk about my faith as I learn how to cope through life (good and bad) together. I want to always put complete control in my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, because without Him, I am nothing. My prayer is that I can somehow help someone by sharing my story. It is most definitely easier said than done, and I fail daily, but striving to make things work in a world that doesn’t understand is just one of the reasons I am here, writing and sharing my story and trying to be the best me as I can and being the best mother that my children will love and respect and see me survive and thrive as I watch them surviving two thriving in life. But, most of all that they see Jesus in me. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11 God has a plan for my life and my family as well and for who is reading this right now. I can only hope and pray that I am doing what He has called me to do…… Being a wife, mom, advocate of special needs, a friend, encourager, but most of all… a servant of His. This has been and continues to be a unique life raising my SuPeR HeRo children dancing in the rain of the beautiful, messy life!

  1. Oh my goodness, Tonya – I was just bawling as I watched this video. So many memories of our sweet Jeffrey who has quadriplegic cerebral palsy and all the moments we had with him when he was young. And of our other sweet little boy Bryan who left to be with Jesus when just 3 months old. Keep pushing forward as God blesses your ministry. He is listening, and He is able. Thank you. Sharing this on my FB page.

      Thank you so much! I made this video a few year ago. The man singing “I’ll run with you” is one of our sweet friends. He and his wife and another family member of theirs, sang this song when Brandon passed. We met them at a Southern Gospel Quartet Convention Singing that our church was hosting one year and we are truly blessed. I still cry when watching it again from time to time. Those memories will forever be in my mind and I love sharing our world with others because there are so many that just don’t understand. I know that you do and my heart is happy that you were touched by our story and too that we are now connected through facebook, Etc.
