Day 37

I happen to know that we have been here for a long time now.  Since Sept. 1st.  I think we're hanging in there ok. Some days it does take it's toll though.  Especially during certain hormonal explosion times.  Mostly you nurses here are just great, but boy do you hold some power over how we feel here. Some just don't click with us or respect me as the parent and seem like you are still in 'high school' in your attitude.  Thankfully, that is rare.  Thankfully the Lord is my portion and my rock.  I will show the love of Christ and not be brought down by these little bumps in the road for long.  Amen.

Day 29

Today is day 29 post transplant.  We have been through the ringer and back.  Have you ever thought your child might be facing death...soon?  It's a disheartening feeling.  It is a surefire way to learn to pray better.  We have turned a corner in his healing.  We have a long way to go but we are heading in the right direction and we are seeing many prayers answered.  Whilst he is sleeping, I just stepped outside into a beautiful 80 degree sunny day with a lovely breeze.  My current world.  I need to be out here, to feel the sun on my face.  I find bits of green intermixed with shiny architectural shapes of buildings 8 stories high.  Breezes are just always better when you are next to trees.  I am unable to think of what I will do when I get home.  I am only here, in the now, in this moment.  Praising God for victories along the way......

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:
MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.
