Wishes.....

Yesterday our family found out someone who we have shared something monumental and life changing with is fighting for his life. This has rocked our family beyond belief, we can't begin to share the emotions we felt this morning.
After getting the news, sharing tears, I decided to take my girls to the park and just breath in there innocence. I watched them play oblivious to the pain of the world can offer, I watched them giggle, chase each other, hug, pretend to be someone else and escape into a make believe place. I felt almost jealous that I was a grown up and my heart couldn't forget the pain it was feeling.
I wanted to escape to the make believe magical place where I could laugh and forget and not think about B and his family and how much they are hurting.
Just when I thought my precious five year old hadn't got it, she began to pick the old dandelion heads in a big bouquet. With a very serious little face she asked her sister to come over to Mommy. Standing in front of me she asked me blow the dandelion and help her wish come true. I asked her what her wish was, half expecting her to say what she always does, a horse Mom.
My eyes welled and a lump held the cries in my throat as she replied, "All these wishes Mommy are for K and G's Daddy to get better and stay with them."
I had thought she didn't get it......

I love you Princess puddin' pop, you show me the wonders of mankind and how good people can be. I am so proud to be your mommy.

Our thoughts are with you B. Fight.

I loved this sentence. Children breathe out their innocence and into us it becomes a solace.
My thoughts are with you.
