To everyone who has left a comment, emailed or called (love you, Lis :)) to share a word of encouragement, a scripture verse, a contact that might be helpful, or to let us know that you were thinking of or praying for our girl… I’ve read every one, and many I’ve read numerous times.
I am humbled. And oh, so grateful. This has been a tough time for me and I’ve fumbled with feeling guilty for being overwhelmed with emotion and sadness.
But y’all made me feel so much better. Every one of you.
Y’all are wise.
Y’all are wonderful.
And I’d better stop now, because I feel myself getting all misty again.
But before I run off to grab my trusty Kleenex, I want to share part of an email from my friend Katherine, that I think embodies my sincerest hope…
“It is right, and I would say even good, to grieve the pains and brokenness of this world and the way it manifests itself in our bodies. But grieve with hope, knowing that He might be shown more glorious through the most broken parts of our lives.”
