I was intending to post about a couple of things today, but that’ll have to wait. Life with Rudy at home has been good. He’s had a busy schedule with four doctor appointments in the last two days–we are so grateful for the attention that’s being paid to him. But more on that later.
I never expected my morning routine to include a roll call of sorts, but essentially that’s what I do when I turn on my computer. I check on a number of kids every morning by going to their blogs and seeing if there are any updates. It often serves as inspiration and encouragement to hear from people who are in similar situations. Unfortunately, there are mornings where it brings tough reminders of the reality we are living in. That’s what met me when I checked on Kayleigh, whose 11-month battle came to an end. I thought hard before sharing the link because this is tough stuff, but her father Adam’s writing is so stirring I haven’t been able to shake it all day. It expands my notion of what walking in faith is all about; trusting God without the assurance of a favorable outcome.
Once again, I am both impressed by the courage parents can summon and deeply regret the circumstances that evince it.
