It's a beautiful day up in heaven. Jesus is rounding up his tiniest angels, to go live on earth, and be born. One of the sweetest angels says to Jesus "I don't want to leave, I like it here, and I will miss you". He reassures the scared little angel that everything will be okay, and that he is just going for a visit. He is still not swayed on this idea. So Jesus kneels down, and says, "How about if you leave half of your heart here with me and take the other half with you, will that be okay?" The angel smiles and says, "I guess that will work". But the little angel is still a little scared. He asks,"Will I be okay with only half of my heart?" Jesus replies,"Of course you will, I have other angels there that will help out, and you will be fine." Then Jesus gives the angel more details about his plan. He says "When you are born, your mommy will be scared, so you have to be strong, and when you feel weak just remember that I have the other half of your heart". "Enjoy your time with your family, play and laugh everyday." "And when its time to come back to heaven, I will make your heart whole again. Always remember that you are not broken, just torn between two loves."
Great article! That post about the wind in her hair was so precious and I'm sure you reminded so many (including me) what we take for granted... you're awesome Suzie and your daughter, well...she just takes the cake!
Awesome!!!!!! I still love that pic....she's adorable!
What a beauty! We are so glad the weather is changing for the better up there, and thankful that Lindsay is doing well and can enjoy it. Praying always for a perfect heart, and rejoicing in the hope that Sofi's good news bring us...
Love, The Hagerotts
Looks like I'm not the only one that was captivated by that beautiful smiling face OUTDOORS!
And Suzie, I just have to tell you that I was brushing my teeth this morning and picked up my Blackberry to check on the Princess (now if that isn't stalker-ish behavior, I don't know what is!) and I saw the posts about Sofi's heart. I literally sprung leaks from my eyes! I had to stop brushing my teeth (I finished later - don't worry!) because I was flooded with so much emotion. (As an aside, like you, I too cry at the drop of a hat!) I have checked in on Sofi sporadically so I was very, very happy to hear her good news! As tears of happiness for little Sofi fell (she is the same age as my Emily so I related to her on that level), I know that tears of sorrow were also falling... for the donor family, of course, but also for YOU!
I have to tell you that you are a remarkable Christian women, Suzie. Your posts about Sofi convey true, raw, heartfelt excitement for HER. There is not an ounce of envy in your words. And I admire you for that.
And as I prayed for Sofi this morning, I couldn't help but also pray for little Lindsay and your family. God provided Sofi with a heart at exactly the RIGHT time (what a miracle!). And I know that he will provide Lindsay with her heart at exactly the RIGHT time for HER. Long though the wait is (and I can't imagine how long it must seem to you), I hope and pray that as you rejoice in Sofi's "miracle day", YOUR heart will be renewed in knowing that miracles can happen, miracles do happen, and a miracle WILL happen for Lindsay! Her time has not yet come... but it WILL!
Thank you for being the example that you are, Suzie. My prayers will continue for Sofi... and of course, for little Lindsay and your family!
Love to you all!
Me again... just got your sweet note in the mail. And I'm not mad at you... it made my day :) And I adored the notecards... they were perfect! Glad you liked the "feeding" gear!
What a rock star!! I am trying to add Lindsay's button, but it wont work, is anyone else having a problem with your button??
This article was our first introduction to lindsay and our thoughts and prayers have been with her everyday since. We also have a little girl,now five, that was born with Truncus Arteriosis and has had 2 open hearts so far at motts. Mabe our paths will cross someday, we also live in kalamazoo, and our little miracles can share their journeys with one another! We will pray for many more days in the wind and the grass for Lindsay! God Bless/
