Reality Check

Please go and look at this picture of Chloe.



Isn't she beautiful?


I read about her at my friend Renae's blog.


In about three hours, she's undergoing a 6 to 8 hour operation for a liver transplant.


Will you pray for her and her family, and will you remember the family who have donated the liver, who must also be going through a terrible time.


One last thing. Promise you'll remind me of this post if you ever hear me moaning again about the not-too-bad things that go on around here.


Because right now, I'm feeling pretty ashamed of myself.

Prayers for Chloe, that her operation goes well and she recovers fully. Thank God for the Physicians and Surgeons in our world! I'm sure Chloe will do quite well!

I feel we all ought to be ashamed of ourselves at times like these.
A chance of life for one child and the death of another. One thing for sure, it is the ONLY thing that would keep me going if I'd lost a loved one, would be to think that he/she lived on in some one else!

Such a beautiful little baby to have to go through all that. Prayers go out for her, certainly -and you are not alone kid, with the whining and complaining about how rough we have it. I think the little ones like this sweet baby are the only ones who don't complain and they sure have earned the right to do that before the rest of us, haven't they? Bet I can beat you at complaining though. My kids say I'm the best they know at doing that. LOL and Peace.

Chloe is utterly gorgeous and I shall be thinking of her and her family, hoping it goes well. And the donor family.

Stop beating yourself up about your moaning. I've got no doubt that you put up with a lot - we all do in our own way. There is nothing of which to be ashamed.

Take care. x

Such a beautiful child. I will pray. (and that doesn't happen often.) A reality check indeed.

Make's another sleepless night seem like a blessing. Our prayers too, are with her.

Okay .. listen to me .. you have no reason to be ashamed of your thoughts or feelings. There is a lot of misery in this world ... many people, children, animals who are far worse off than we are ... but that does not make us bad nor give us cause to be ashamed.

I am not a praying person but I am going to keep good thoughts for Chloe and for all the others in this world who are not as lucky as we are to be healthy ....
