crossing fingers

It's easy to forget when your child is healthy that others are struggling. When you have no particular parenting fears that others are biting their nails. My ordinary day skips along without incident while others are treading over new journeys forged to bring answers. And on those days the world seems to come to a standstill. The unknowns and the soothing, the bitten back fears and kindnesses of strangers. The fact that as a mom, so much of it is up to you.

Kyla, I am standing next to you as you head into that hospital and seek the answers you need.

Your grace, your endless well of grace, will carry you through.

You are an extraordinarily caring person, aren't you? Yes, I think you are.

I don't detect even a single speck of princess.

Sending positive thoughts, Kyla's way.

It's so easy to take our own good fortune for granted. I'm taking time to be grateful for mine and sending healing thoughts to Kyla and family.

She is a gracious, graceful girl. KayTar is going to be fabulous.

I had no idea, but just popped over to try and understand better what you were so worried about.

Fingers and toes crossed here.

My worst fear. My best prayers to her.

On an odd note, I think we are reading one another's blogs at the same time. :)

Yes, we really should appreciate what luck we DO have, shouldn't we?

I don't know her, but I'm going to her page to wish her and her family well.

Kyla said...

You, you, you. Too much. My heart. It just went BOOM.

This is the first time I've logged on and my inbox is quite full of comments...I had to track down the culprit. ;)

KayTar is taking a nap, we were up from 1:30 to 4:30 this morning...I'm have an addiction fix while she's sleeping (internet and coffee).

You...all of you...you're amazing. My heart...just wow. Thanks.
