We were surprised with a Christmas Card from someone dear to us that lives far away.  The image of the kids and the parents smiling for the traditional card made my heart warm and brought a huge smile from Terry when I shared the picture.  I pulled out the 'newsletter' included and began reading about the past year for the two young ones, happily sharing the details with Terry as I read. A first broken bone, speech therapy, basketball, baseball, Playhouse Disney etc.   There was a point my voice broke and I stopped reading.  The tears were falling and the world seemed to turn upside-down.  

The youngest son, only age 3, was diagnosed in October with a rare form of kidney cancer, Wilms Tumor.  Terry and I prayed and talked and prayed even more.  I have been in contact with the family through email and joined their journey on the CARING BRIDGE site.  We spent time this morning reading all of the posts and sentiments.  

Our prayers support this family. The little ones are always God's dearest treasure. They are still tied closely to heaven and innocent from many things in this world.  I know this is part of God's plan for this little life.  God knows exactly what is happening and what lies ahead.  The journey stretches out before all of them with endless challenges. Please keep the "G" family at the top of your prayer list. Mom says we are planning on a huge 4th birthday celebration next summer.
Count your blessings...
