a debtor to mercy alone
This post has nothing to do with photography - at all. I've been reading the blogs of the parents of these two beautiful children - Alivia and Micah. Both are incredibly sick (one has leukemia and the other a brain tumor). I don't actually know them, but reading about the incredible trials these families are going through has really been heartbreaking - and also has made me extremely grateful. When I came home from school today, I cried when I read Alivia's moms' post.
Here is a part of it:
I'm tired. I want to go home.
I want to take a real shower that hasn't been used by strangers.
I want to cook for myself and my family.
I want to have a vacuum. I want to check my answering machine.
I want to go to the grocery store.
I want to stand in my closet and figure out what to wear.
I want to take Alivia outside and let her play and run and be normal.
I want my baby to be healthy.
I don't want to discuss if she needs another blood-transfusion or which anti-fungal medicine to put her on or how much morphine she needs to be comfortable.
I want to bake a cake and sing "Happy Birthday" and let her get icing from head-to-toe.
I want her hair back. I want this all to be over.
Almost every post she asks for prayer. So, please, pray pray pray for Alivia and Micah. I know what it is like to have someone you love be sick, but I cannot imagine what it must be like as a mother or father. Please pray.
