Abby & Caption For An Ad

It's funny how things become so special when you aren't sure they'll last. Abby is getting sores again in her mouth and on her bottom, which means the mucositis is returning (the chemo toxicity causes the soft tissues to get sores).

Abby was eating spaghetti delicately because her mouth hurts but she still looked over and said "I lub you Daddy". Quick, grab the camera.... focus in, and:

Brent and Michelle,
I am not going to enter this contest because my blog is private right now and that is the way it has to be. However, I couldn't sleep last night and decided today to talk to you about what I came up with last night....I would like to see all of the followers of your blog who feel led to do so to have a DAY OF FASTING for breakthrough in Abby's health.
Imagine the power where a corporate body of believers stands together to fast and intercede for a 24 hour period for Abby.
Would you consider it...and if so, I will gladly write up something but my blog is private and won't reach nearly the number of readers that yours will. What do you think?
Blessings,
Holly
(for Brent- I am the one who sent the 12 days of Christmas gifts. Michelle and I met b/c the Lord used Samrawit to open our heart to older child adoption from Ethiopia...then I found Michelle...Sami's Mama and the rest is history!)

I think Abby herself spoke the perfect caption... "I lub you Daddy" That is so precious. As is she.

God and Daddy - my heroes! Does it get any better?

Candy said...

I don't need the win...since I was AMOST FAMOUS this month...But Kya wants to say that Abby is thinking in this picture that SPACE BUDDIES came out today and The Other Mommy and Other Daddy (which is what she calls her friends parents) need to buy one. She also says Abby wants to see the talking doggys. YOU know Kya does miss Abby, Spidey Landis and Sami VERY MUCH...

I'm bad at contests, but I was reading and I just wanted to say that I would fast for Abby too! If you choose to do this, I'm in! (I will probably pick a day and do it anyway, but it would be a really cool thing to have a bunch of people fasting and praying on the same day!)
With love and prayers,
Natalie
