Here are see some pictures of our Chance! On an escape from the hospital for the weekend and one of him sleeping so soundly at the hospital. He doesn't look like the very sick little boy that he is, but then if you look again???
Chance has gone back into remission now (August 12) and is having his bone
marrow tested as I write this. Time is going very quickly and very slowly at the same time.
This is the hardest page for me to do, simply because I do have to be bold and open my heart wide and show my pain and fear to the world and again ask for prayers and perhaps more?
I have procrastinated on this page for more than a week, just ask some of my online/offline friends! I have sat facing the screen blankly, I have traveled to others sites to put off humbling myself, and then I remind myself what it's all about!
So here I am, showing you the fear and need of me to all of you out there. Please take a moment or two to visit some of the sites below, that will in one way or another help make Chance and his family a little more less stressed on the financial end. Look into your hearts and do what is right for you, but please remember
there is no cost involved to you, unless you want to do so directly, unless
you buy something. But then if you are like me, you love to shop! But mostly just some of your time and heartfelt desire to help a little boy that has a family that is going thru frustrations, fear and looking to the unknown with the life of their precious CHANCE!
A lady in the sisterhood of LOTH sent me this story a few days ago, I had heard it before and I am sure that you might have, nonetheless,I hope you enjoy the story. I sometimes forget where my faith lies.
SHAKE IT OFF
A parable is told of a farmer who owned an old mule. The mule fell into
the farmer's well. The farmer heard the mule braying - or whatever mules
do when they fall into wells.
After carefully assessing the situation, the farmer sympathized with the
mule but decided that neither the mule nor the well was worth the
trouble of saving. Instead, he called his neighbors together, told them
what happened, and enlisted them to help haul dirt to bury the old mule
in the well and put him out of his misery.
Initially, the old mule was hysterical! But as the farmer and his
neighbors continued shoveling and the dirt hit his back, a thought
struck him. It suddenly dawned on him that every time a shovel load of
dirt landed on his back, he should shake it off and step up!
This he did, blow after blow. "Shake it off and step up... shake it off
and step up... shake it off and step up!" he repeated to encourage
himself. No matter how painful the blows or distressing the situation
seemed, the old mule fought panic and just kept right on shaking it off
and stepping up.
You're right! It wasn't long before the old mule, battered and
exhausted, stepped triumphantly over the wall of that well! What seemed
like it would bury him actually blessed him - all because of the manner
in which he handled his adversity! Author Unknown
THIS IS SO TRUE!
I just have to remember MY faith and trust in My higher power that what will be will be!
