I wanted to say a sincere thank you to everyone who sought to encourage me yesterday and today. I was surprised by the personal attacks from the anonymous individual, but have come to understand that it's not my issue to carry. I know who I am through Christ and I know the love I have for Him, and my family. And the love that God has allowed so many of you to have for us. I thank you for such a sweet blessing. I've decided to delete all of yesterday's online "activities" because much like a red sock can ruin a laundry load of stark white towels, I don't want such a stain to be a part of Ethan's one day reflections over this time in his life. There are people who will always misunderstand us, judge us, hurt us, etc.... but a sweet friend's email reminded me that Jesus was treated no differently during His time on earth - and He always sought to forgive. And we are called to likewise forgive those who hurt us... or try to. My peace is from God, my strength is from Him and that's all that matters today. He is my defense.
I would also like to ask for your prayers for Ethan's doctor visit today. We are trying to get him scheduled to have his central line removed ASAP. He has started pulling on it and scratching at it so hard that the skin around the area is starting to bleed. Quite problematic!
Thank you for your prayers. Thank you for your encouragement. I read all of your words and smiled at the love many of you have for our family. Sweet blessings back at ya!
