Hi. OK, first off, I would like to thank everyone for your amazing, heartfelt comments on my last post. I am truly humbled by your responses to both the "Don't Lose Heart" post and the art piece. I poured out my heart, and you poured yours right back. wow. There were many times when I would go to read another comment and I would get all teary eyed, and be so grateful and humbled, because I was just a vessel with a message to pass on. I knew it was meant to be shared, so I'm very glad it reached so many people. What a beautiful experience to be a part of something that was so needed.
Speaking of need, our Australian friend Mandy over at the blog Eight is Enough needs our help. Her son is 9 years old and has acute life-threatening spasmodic croup. It flares up on a regular basis, and his throat can start closing up quickly. It's rare and they're trying to find out any information that they can to help ease their lives and make their boy better. If you know anything about it, or know someone who has it, or just want to let her know you're praying for her, PLEASE contact Mandy at her blog or email. Her email is firstname.lastname@example.org. And please click here to go to her blog to find out more. Or you can email me and i'll pass it on Emakesart@gmail.com Oh, and you can also help by posting about and linking up to her post to help spread the word as far as we can, praying it'll land in the right hands.
Oh, and if you're wondering about the picture, my husband left it for me on the kitchen counter yesterday morning. A delicious toast heart (covered with yummy goat cheese and apricot jam) which helped to brighten my morning and reminded me 1) how wonderful the "small" things can be, and 2) that I am loved.
