Praying for this boy

My heart is here, with this boy and his family tonight.
I really, really want to brag up a car...but my heart just isn't there tonight. This little boy, his name is Isaac and he is 5 years old, is the son of a high school friend that Von played basketball with. We called him cabbage head, but all in love because he is one of the nicest people you will ever know. This little boy is the son a mother that my husband taught with at the elementary school. She is funny as hell and witty and beautiful. This little boy is a brother...sandwiched in between two brothers who love him like only brothers can love each other. This little boy is a grandson, a nephew, a friend. Yesterday he was just a little he is a little boy that just had a malignant tumor removed from his brain. At age 5. The reality of this is like falling from a fence as a kid and having all the air knocked out of you leaving you unable to breathe. The reality of this is looking at your own children and wondering how and why they are so lucky and naive that they don't know this kind of fear...yet. The reality of this is knowing that no matter what you do or scream or pray or cry, it is out of your hands. The strength this family will come to know is a strength I don't think exists for people going on in an uninterupted world. If you are a praying person, please pray for this family. If you a spiritual person, please think of them often and wish them peace and harmony.

I will be back tomorrow to share about the car.
But for tonight, lets put cars and houses and "stuff" out of our thoughts...and think of our children and loved ones.

Peace and love to you,
