She said it Best

Again, I refer you to my inspiring post....she gives herself the best advice on dealing with trials.

It's been a few days of tears and agonizing. Watching a beloved daughter suffer and wondering how to help her. Worrying about a precious grandchild's future. And yet, there is always hope. There have been so many others who have lifted and encouraged. There have been blessings of peace and comfort. Pleading prayers. Humble prayers of accepting God's will, no matter what.

And so we wait.
And hope.

The pictures on the ultrasound do not paint a pretty picture. There are serious defects in her little baby's heart. There are serious worries about genetic chromosomal defects. She has a team of compassionate, caring doctors. I struggled to hold in the tears when one of them gave her a tender hug after he delivered the tough news.

And so we wait
And hope.

But go read her eloquent words.
She said it best.


Amy said...

Thank you Mom. For everything! I love you so much.

Oh Grandma...I'm so sorry for the little one.

I read Amy's post...what a foundation you have given her. When trials come to our children don't we pray that they will do exactly what she is doing?

I am full of emotions for all of you. Know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.

Momza said...

Words aren't much at times like these. They sorta ring hollow.
I'm going to try anyway.
I'm sorry for the heartaches your family is most certainly enduring.
I read your Amy's post too. She is very brave and faithful. And as a Mother of a special-needs child, I can say without hesitation, that this experience, this Child, will be a blessing for all of you--the family, friends, nurses and doctors--all involved in caring for this little girl. It is the unusual things in life that awaken our souls and stretch our faith to grow. And it's hard. So so hard.
Yet, I know in my own life, I have not been left alone in my challenges. And I know you know this, but I feel inclined to say it anyway: Heavenly Father loves His Children.

There was a scripture tickling the edge of my mind that I just had to look up. This is what I was feeling after reading Amy's post...

3 John 1:4 "I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth."

Again blessings to all.

She's amazing. You clearly have taught her through your own faith.
Love to you all.

Your best plan of action is to help Amy with her sorrow. There will also be joy. You have had some blessings in the past. Maybe there is room to squeeze in one more. Love you.

Amy is an amazing woman! My prayers are with all of you at this time. Waiting is hard.

I'm so sorry that you have to watch you precious daughter struggle with something so serious. I know a momma's heart aches so much for these types of things that we cannot fix. Prayers... and even though I don't wanna cry, I'll go read her post. :/
Thinking of you guys,

How can I express my hopes- and prayers for you??
Please know that your sweet family will be in my prayers.
Prayers for Amy and her sweet baby. The Lord will give you the blessings and comfort you need... I really believe that. I have had such blessings in my life and in dealing with our own daughters critical illness.
sending you all , Kerin
