At times Travis and I feel completely overwhelmed by the circumstances we are now in.
However, we are also overwhelmed by the amazing generoustiy of friends, family, and strangers. People all over the world are praying for my son. I keep hearing about churches who have us on their prayer chains, Newman Centers who are offering Holy Hours, Bible Study and Mom Groups who are lifting us up before the Lord. It too is overwhelming. But instead of making me feel like I am drowning I feel like I am being carried along. Such a small act of love has such huge results.
We have also been deeply touched by people who have given to us: meals, groceries, gas cards, money, gift cards, babysitting, cleaning. We will never be able to repay such thoughtfulness, though I know that is not why these things are offered and given.
I was asked to put the link to sign up for dinners on the blog. It's on the top of the column on the right. You may have already noticed that the prayer for Archbishop Sheen's intercession and a miraculous healing of James is on the top left. Please join my family in praying that prayer every day, throughout the day.
I know my words are small, but THANK YOU!
