"Yes, I Can"
Over the last few days, my heart has paused, my breathe taken away for a moment and my soul strengthened by the bravery of a little girl.
"Mommy, I didn't cry......I just breathed in and out" were the words spoken to me early yesterday morning as Emma Sage called me from her hospital bed after another blood-draw.
and here is my wish to all of you who visit our blog.
Can you please keep Emma Sage surrounded in positive thoughts and prayers, as she has been in the hospital since Sunday and the doctors are working hard to figure out what is making my little girl so sick.
I was blessed to be able to be with her from Sunday morning, when this unexpected journey began and sadly had to come home Monday night as I have commitments to my job [and with Rick out of work, that luxury to even think of taking off is gone] so Daddy has been with her around the clock and Greta, Otto and I [and Katrina has been on the phone with her continuously] are able to go in the evenings to spend time with our sweet Emma Sage.
I firmly believe in the power of prayer and positive energy...........and I pray that from all points of the world, my little girl is being lifted in prayer during this uncertain time.
I also believe in signs........and I've been so worried of late that my eyes, heart, soul has not been as open as they should be and I stopped to pray this morning for clarity.
But the signs have been there...........Bob, who stopped by on Monday morning to pray with me, my dearest friends who have started prayer circles and sending an outpouring of love and positive thoughts and kind words, to two little boys names 'Nash and Ryan' who were on a gift of tulip cookie bouquet that made my little girls eyes sparkle and her smile broaden from ear to ear, when she tells the nurses that the gift was from her 'Boyfriends'.....to a pile of cards, hand-written with love from her teachers and classmates. So many signs of the love that surrounds my daughter and family.
and then When I opened my inbox this morning, a lovely note was there from two wonderful men I got to personally meet this fall, John DeMasi and Chris Burke.
This is the link that was in the message:
"Yes, I Can".....................I know my little girl will continue to be strong and I know her being will be surrounded with love and prayer and this journey will have a happy ending.
