I could really use a wish right now . . .
So much of life is the hope of days to come. Our family hasn't had much to look forward to in the past years. Often, the days and weeks and months look like a long dark road of more of the same. You find that hours pass without laughing or smiling or finding any joy at all. You can't even picture a truly happy place anymore.
The weekend before my hysterectomy I got a call from a local organization Wishes Can Happen. My sweet sister Heather had contacted them about our family and Danica's upcoming surgery. The woman who called asked, "What if you could tell your children as soon as you get through this they get to go to Disney World?" Instantly my mind went to the possibility of our family leaving our life and heading to a magical place where children believe in dreams coming true again. Just having something to hold on for and work towards in this healing and rehabilitation process is a most precious gift.
We will get to stay at an amazing place called Give Kids the World. The girls each have their own wish. Delaney is wanting to swim with dolphins and hoping to go to Discovery Cove. Danica wants to meet the princesses. I want to hold hands as a family and watch the fireworks and not just wish for better days but KNOW they are coming.
OUR HOPE REMAINS!
