I am still working on my humongous THANK YOU to all of those who sponsored a blood drive in Gideon's honor and those who donated. I need to have a lot of time to really get the words right and to paint a picture of the TRUE MIRACLE that has occurred again and again last week. I am still baffled. I am still amazed. And the good fishies keep swimming to our Gideon!
And now, a plea to my east-side friends: Missy Wiseheart, a friend from high school, is organizing a blood drive in Gideon's honor, too. The drive will be held on May 6 from 12 noon to 6 at the Red Cross Donor Center at: 31150 Haggerty Road Farmington Hills, MI 48331. Please come to this blood drive to donate some good fishies! Spread the word! Please click here to schedule an appointment. THANK YOU!
Yesterday was a difficult day. I haven't had a hard day like that in awhile. Instead of asking for pity, I will ask for your "WOW" as I was throwing myself a pity party and things turned around in a musical beat. I got in my car and kept praying over and over and over (and half-hearted, if I am being completely honest), "Please get me out of my funk. Please get me out of my funk." And then, on my "CHEMO CD" that is always in my car, Alicia Key's "Through it All" came on. My boys, amazingly, know every word. They started belting in unison. My favorite part was when they sang, "I-eye, I-eye, I-eye, I-eye-haaaaaaaaaaaa! Gonna LOVE ya, gonna hold ya through it all!" My heart instantly melted. I'm thankful that God can even answer half-hearted prayers. Also, I think the angels in heaven sing like our children. I'm convinced of that.
