Hi Regis! as much as I'm speechless I thank you for bringing out a a sense of appreciation of unconditional love that we sometimes lack. Thanks for sharing! God bless
what a compelling testament to the wisdom of a child's love and wisdom -- thanks for sharing this story of courage and a perspective that properly places the important issues of our lives at the top of the pile -- may a sandpiper find you this day -- peace and love my friend -- Jon Michael
Sad but we hope. R
Thanks for sharing it. You didn't say I'd need a Kleenex!! keep well. :)
This is absolutely beautiful, Regis! One of my twin daughters had Leukemia -- three times. Once at four, again at 8, and then a relapse at 10. She's had Total Body Irradiation (TBI), and two bone marrow transplants. Believe me, I know the devastation a life-treatening illnes can bring, and the magic of a child's smile ... even a bald-headed eight-year old whose infectious smiles won the hearts of Western Washington. She was on TV several times, during Children's Hospital fundraisers, and helped to raise more than 20 million for Childrens Hospital. Here's the best part: She's a 20-year-old Sophomore at Western Washington University, with high grades. In aall the years she was ill, including 6 weeks in the ICU, intubated, and expected to die, she never missed a grade of school. Now, that's perseverence!
Good reminder Regis. Thanks, Tom
Tears For All Our Lost Little Children,
i.e. For The Love Of (God) Is For The Love Of (His)Little Children...
I read the story a week or two last, and send it to nearly a hundred non AD members with a note to log in and read what the authors post.
It is a sad story and yet full of understanding, love and hope.
It should be read by many.
Beautiful story shared from a beautiful heart. It's true--no coincidences in this life. And no one is to be discounted. We are here to learn. No time to brood over our mistakes, life is too precious. Surely that wise little soul understood his pain, as these children are angels. This story is a teacher and I'm glad I read your blog today, Regis. Thank you for sharing this. Much love to you...Lin
Reg, this is a beautiful reminder that seeing things through a childs eyes are not only pure but correct as well. Thanks for sharing this with us.
