There is so much God has in store and stored up for us. You know that saying 'he'll give you 'double for your trouble'...I'm ready, we're ready. We've remained hopeful throughout this entire journey and there are still processes, procedures and treatment to complete, but I'm so excited about the difference all of these things will make in our lives. As we were leaving the hospital on clinic day, we got off the elevator and Mireya said 'hmmm it smells so good in here' (mind you we came in that same way with a mask and it was a different sensory experience), she just kept breathing in and out deeply with appreciation. I was tickled for her. She has asked to go outside everyday since that appointment. She has reminded us on several occasions that once she gets her line out she can get in a tub 'full' of water and lay down. One of my greatest concerns has been during Reya's play time (as normal 5-year old ) that somehow her line would get yanked out of her chest/neck while playing, jumping or by the mistep of a sibling or playmate. I know it's a gruesome thought, but a very real one for me every day. In preparation for her return to school, I've had discussions with her teacher and the Admin Team on how we could handle her recess time without making her feel penalized or sheltered. She is very aware of it, but I've seen the school yard at recess. Things mistakenly happen, so how amazing is it that she will have it out prior to actually going to school! Thank you Lord...we're holding on to your promises as tightly as we've held onto your hand throughout this entire process. Thank you for your continued prayers. I can't say it enough, there is power in prayer and everything that matters and concerns us, matters to God.
There is no rhyme or reason and some things we will never understand, but....be still and know that I am God...every good and perfect thing comes from God...there is nothing to big or to small for God and with him ALL things are possible.
