The Color of Courage
normally i love to post to meri's musings:
i spent hours thinking about what brought me jOy this week.
it was very very difficult.
i know that travel brings me
but my heart wasn't there.
our granddaughter, emily is what brings me
jOy this day and always.
emily is in the hospital with a chronic condition,
her teen years spent in the
peaks and valleys
of severe pain.
emily is the color of courage ~
she strives to relieve the worries of her
parents, family, friends and those who care for her~
emily shares a beautiful smile and open heart~
emily is filled to overflowing with compassion
and love for others~
she is a cheerleader for those who can do the things she can not~
she is an example to the many who are also overwhelmed in their lives~
emily is the most courageous young woman i know~
a book could be written on
the way she lives her life
under challenging circumstances~
is emily and the gift she is in our lives.
Heart Thought: a prayer for this very special granddaughter and the challenges she faces day to day.
