Around 8:00 I rock Hope and then after David finishes his meds via his port around 9:00 I rock him. Tonight he requested me to sing David Crowder to him. My precious son and I sang "How he loves us" all snuggled up in Barry's recliner and I bawled. I bawled because I know with all my heart the words we were singing are so true. Jesus truly loves us so much. Then I remembered today while we were working on
Mike and I are feeling the heat right now. David is on the last yet intense leg of his treatment. Mike's job is extremely intense these days as the budget is ridiculously tight for public schools. Mike's Dad is in the hospital with more question marks than answers right now, and we are trying to keep Kyle's life as normal as possible with school and SOL tests. We are feeling pressed from all sides, yet both of us feel God's presence in our lives like never before.
After I got David snuggled in bed I fell to my knees in prayer. I thanked God for our snuggle time in Barry's recliner. I thanked Him for walking so faithfully with us through the last six months of this nightmare. I thanked Him for all the love and support that he has showered on us through you all. We are so blessed and loved because of our Jesus. I hate cancer but I am so the thankful for the life lessons that God has taught us through this nightmare and for the growth in our faith as a family. God knows we feel pressed from all sides tonight, but we will never be alone. God is using a brave seven year old cancer warrior to teach this Mom and Dad lots of lessons on faith and trust. Tonight snuggled in Barry's recliner I thanked God for the life of all three of my children, but especially for the skinny, bald-headed angel who reminds us each and everyday how much Jesus truly loves us all.
