I have thought a lot about this post and when I should write about our upcoming trip to California. Only in the past week have I started to tell people that Callie will be returning to California in January. It is hard to believe that it has been almost a year since our last trip. Time seems to just go in a flash. I hate that the good moments seem to go faster than the bad:/ Having a child that is part of the CHD community I am reminded pretty much on a daily basis how precious life is and not to take any moment for granted. And this past week was no different.... Precious 4 yr. old Mia who was born with a Congenital heart defect went to be with the Lord this past week. She had a heart transplant as an infant and was on her Make-A-Wish to Disney when she became very ill and was rushed to the hospital. She went it for a heart cath that determined she was in rejection and suffered cardiac arrest and never recovered. Once again I am reminded how special Callie's life is and in a blink of an eye it all could change. I would be lying to say, that I don't worry about her everyday because I do. I worry when she is at school and what could happen to her. I worry at night when she goes to bed that she might not wake up the next morning. It is hard to say all of that but it is the TRUTH. This is her blog http://mcdonaldfam.blogspot.com/ please take a moment to pray for her sweet family.
For we walk by faith, not by sight. 2 Corinthians 5:7
There has been bracelets made for Callie that we are selling to help raise some funds for her upcoming trip.
