Love, Gratitude and Prayers...

Many weeks have passed since I last wrote.  Looking back at my last post I remember feeling the elation of seeing the Grand Canyon again.  Some days later during our stay in Arizona I received a chilling phone call from my eldest daughter saying that on her drive back to college  in Eastern Washington, she had hit black ice on the road and had a car accident.  It wasn't till she sent me this photo that I realized how bad it had been..


It was a close call..., the car had flipped several times hurtling her belongings to the front of the car, miraculously, none of the missiles struck Sophie (including the tire jack.)  Using that same tire jack, she broke the window and was able to escape... although badly shook up and bruised a trip to the hospital confirmed that she was not badly injured.

We returned home the next day and realized through phone conversations with Sophie that the car crash had had a deeper impact on her than we realized, so much so that she decided to leave her college and come home for the rest of the school year.

I was so relieved to have her home, and grateful to have her in one piece.

Initially, it was easy, making sure she had nourishing food to eat, lots of rest and love... but I noticed that she wasn't quite her old self despite my ministering to her,,, and seemed a little lost and sad...  

A couple of weeks later she announced that she had been for an interview and offered the job as a nanny to a very adorable 18 month old baby girl...  

Over the past few months "Baby Avery" has become a regular feature at our home... Sophie and her charge drop in often - an event that never fails to brighten our day... I watch the two of them together... Sophie seems so much more like her old self... Avery clearly loves Sophie, curling up in her lap and reading books playing games... I sing old nursery rhymes to her (when I can remember them...)  

I feel like Avery has brought so much healing and love to my daughter...  Sophie no longer looks sad and lost...,  how one little girl can bring so much love, light and healing is a miracle to me.  


Now this little blossom need our LOVE & PRAYERS...

This past weekend Avery was admitted to hospital with Viral Pneumonia...  
Doctors have her on oxygen, and feeding tube..., she is very weak, they are trying to stabilize her, and keep her as comfortable as they can.   Her parents are with her round the clock, they watch for signs that her body is fighting the virus.  Even in her very poorly state, she has asked for "Soph" several times...


  

Please join with us and send this little angel who has become part of our family,  love and prayers for healing.

With love,

Neinah
