I just received an e-mail from a sweet friend of mine that ended by her writing "Team Brayden!" I absolutely love this idea. I have been so humbled this week by how many lives our sweet Brayden has touched. His life does have meaning and does have a purpose. I have been so blessed that God has chosen Marcus and I for this journey. What an amazing gift Brayden is to us. It is such a great comfort knowing that he has been a gift to others besides our family. I will admit that this week has brought me to the lowest point of sorrow. I have never known heartache like I have known it through this journey. But from this pain I am starting to get a renewed sense of purpose. I know that the sorrow and pain in my heart will never go away, but I also know that God is working.
When we first received news of Brayden's diagnosis, I had a pastor call me. During this conversation, he prayed that whenever I was feeling abandoned or low, that someone would reach out to me. My friends, God has answered this prayer. I praise God for all the he has given me.
I hope to hear how many of you are on "Team Brayden."
Thanks again for all of your prayers and support. Please keep praying for our special miracle. Our next doctor's appointment is Monday at 3:00. I would love for everyone reading this blog to take a moment and pray for Brayden at that time. Thanks.
