It’s been a while since my last post.
I just couldn’t bring myself to write.
I tried to “suck it up”, talk myself into posting,
maybe write about something like what I usually do —
photography, cooking, sewing, …
but I just couldn’t do it.
My youngest granddaughter, who is doing fine now,
was in the Pediatric ICU.
I don’t want to dwell on all that happened those days
but it was heart-wrenching, literally.
We are so very thankful and grateful
that she is doing fine.
Words cannot express it.
I still cry sometimes when I see a new picture of her
that my daughter texts me, or a video of how she’s
laughing and chatting away.
Even now, as I write, I find myself overcome with tears.
So thankful for her life.
Some of you may know what I’m talking about when I say
there are pictures in our minds that we try to forget,
mainly seeing loved ones suffer.
Again, I’m so thankful she’s doing fine.
I try to replace those images from the hospital
with new ones from this past week, yesterday, today…
She’s growing so fast and she’s so cute,
I pick up my phone and scroll through videos
and photos, making new memories with her.
It’s really amazing how a little person,
so young, so small,
can become so loved and such an important part
of what makes our heart flip with joy
whenever they smile at us
or laugh at one of our silly faces.
Please pray for her continued healing.
Thank you to those of you who wrote me
and let me know that you missed me.
It meant a lot to me.
I will post as much as I can the next few weeks.
I pray your December is filled with many blessings!
