Skipping a beat (4 days...)

No. I still know how to count backwards.
It is the date that has changed.
This morning Eslea's surgery was moved up one day.
To the 19th.
One less day I have to worry.
One less day I have to fight off the negative thought buggers.

Butterfly kisses between sisters.

I am so amazed and blessed by the show of support surrounding us.
Sometimes in life it takes an event to remind you of what and who are the most important things in your life.

Like friends, family and caring coworkers.
I am blessed to be surrounded by all three.

Today, some of the most considerate and God fearing people I know gathered together at my place of work for a prayer circle. There were 15 of us.
I do not want to write their names, but they know who they are.
I am eternally grateful for them. For lifting up my Eslea in prayer and continuing to pray for her.

I have been struggling to hand this one over to Him.
It's harder when it's your baby girl.
I am the mother. I am the parent.
I should make things better.
Yet there is a parent greater then me.
A Father who knows what is best.
That prayer circle today helped remind me of that.
My load feels lighter.
I trust Him.

With only four days left till her surgery, I want to celebrate the LOVE of those that surround her...

I do not know why I find this so scary. It feels like the hardest thing I have ever had to do.
Thank you to everyone that continues to show support to our little girl.
Thank you for the comments and the prayers.

  1. I cant even imagine! When you say it feels like the hardest thing you have ever had to do, I believe you!! Really, what could be more frightening?! I will be praying for you to have strength and courage on that day, for the Doctors to be guided in their work, and for little Eslea to come out of surgery strong, and healthy!!
