Today, a sweet and young little girl undergoes her second brain surgery to remove cancer's tumorous return. She attended school until yesterday and her sister is in school today. Although these this dynamic duo is only in first grade, their strength and determination is greater than most adults facing far less stressful situations.
While Miss Lillian is in Syracuse under the care of Golisano's Children's Hospital's talented and caring staff with her parents, Miss Emma enjoys the last days of first grade, sleepovers, and extra time with friends. Both girls traveling the same journey and similar yet different storms yet are so in tune to each other's emotions and needs. It's the twin thing exemplified and to watch their relationship offers encouragement, inspiration, and hope to me. I'm thankful to be on this journey with them and pray God uses me in ways only He knows will bless them, because they are a blessing I count each day.
As you go about your day, will you lift the girls, the doctors, nurses, staff, their parents, family, friends, and teachers in your prayers? Thank you! If you could say an extra prayer for me, to be "who" our class needs tomorrow as they are experiencing cancer in a real way, a way that no child should experience personally or as a peer. Prayer is power and God answers every prayer, thank you in advance for remembering Miss Lillian and her family, friends, and classmates.
"Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble,
and he delivered them from their distress.
He made the storm be still, and the waves of the sea were hushed.
Then they were glad that the waters were quiet,
and he brought them to their desired haven."
Please leave a Bible verse, quote, or words of encouragement in a comment below to encourage Miss Lillian and Miss Emma's family as they wait and endure the second longest day since the girls joined them.
