Just keep going.

Don't look back. Just keep going.

It's time to get back up, dust ourselves off and just keep going. These last few weeks have thrown me off the path. I think I got lost somewhere along the way for a little bit, feeling overwhelmed and weary with all that's been going on recently. But I've had enough of that! If Wyatt can keep going, so can I. And you too. (Yes, you!)

The king of sleep has been very, very sleepy today. Very! But as our friend lay beside him in bed, coloring his poster about Heaven with all the things to look forward to and Jilly at the end of the bed reading poems, we saw movement just outside the window. We carefully peeked out the blinds to see a small hummingbird fluttering about, feeding from Wyatt's hummingbird feeder that is suctioned onto the window pane. It's the first hummingbird we've seen there. We excitedly encouraged Wyatt to open his eyes, but his vision comes and goes these days and today is not strong. So, he didn't catch sight of him/her, but he gave a smile and was happy knowing it was there.

We all made it to the musical last evening. Wyatt "behaved" as much as possible and Maggie did great! I couldn't help but notice she did everything in her power to not look our direction and hold back an excited/nervous smile, even though we were seated in the first row and directly in front of her much of the time. :) But she had so much fun and wished theater camp would last all summer long. 

Thank you all for the prayers, love and support.

  1. So glad you were all able to make it to the play!

  2. I'm so happy to hear that all of you went to the play. It's also so nice for Wyatt to know that the hummingbirds have begun to visit. Something he was looking forward to. Many blessings.

  3. I know I have said this before, but you are such an amazing inspiration to me. I know we've never met and I know you may not even remember me from our AOL board long ago, but I have thought of your family so many times over the years. Your strength, courage, and positive attitude are incredible and incredibly impressive. I am inspired to be a more thoughtful, caring person and I am inspired to slow down and appreciate how much I've been given in my life. One of the great gifts that has come to me is your family and your story. Thank you!
