Sunday of Summer

A friend of mine recently posted on Facebook that August is the 'Sunday of Summer'.  A perfectly coined phrase, that is so true. This has been all but a normal summer for us.  Summer time is truly our fun time.  We were sidelined and missed doing so many things, BUT I'm so thankful this summer for a diagnosis, the power of prayer, a donor match, for capable and caring hands to oversee this medical process, the ability for either of us to be at our daughter's bedside every day, meals to feed my family whether we were at home or at the hospital, cards, care packages, phone calls, text messages and emails of support, seeds sown, playdates for Jalen and care for Makinley that allowed us to attend to the business at hand.  I'm grateful for Mireya's phenomenal progress and the things we 'have' been able to enjoy as a family despite the circumstances.

I don't know where I'd be without friendship, family, or my husband.  You will never know the magnitude of how much you've blessed us.  There are no words.  Most importantly we'd be nothing without Christ at the center of all of this.  His love for us is so tremendous!!!  As the 'Sunday of Summer' ends we look forward to reaching our '100 Day' mark and ultimately one year from today looking at a totally cured and healed little girl who will have the ability to do 'EVERYTHING' she couldn't do this year and even more!  Funny how life can change in an instance.  The most beautiful part has been enduring these changes surrounded by unity and love. 

Hebrews 10:23-24 Let's keep a firm grip on the promises that keep us going. He always keeps his word.  Let's see how inventive we can be in encouraging love and helping out.
