I want to share this.. This is part of a posting off Paul Cardall's site.
A quick background on Paul: Paul was born in 1973 with a single ventricle, just like Bela. He has lived and survived longer than most. But his heart is now in failure and he is waiting for a transplant. He is married and has a daughter, Eden. If you want to be inspired and uplifted, read his blog!
This post just made me appreciate the little moments I have with my family more, and I thought it might do the same for you...
Our rocking chairs:
In lieu of our situation I said to my wife, “Go out and by our rocking chairs. I don’t want to wait to grow old with you. I would love to sit with you on the porch today!”
Lynnette brought home two beautiful chairs. The only problem is that we need a third chair for Eden. My sweet little girl is jealous and wants her own chair. She cracks me up. And so, tomorrow we’ll start looking for a third chair. The store evidently sold us the last two black rocking chairs. I'm sure we can find a pink one for our little diva.
