It’s been since January since Liv has been showing us that things were changing with her. It was at that point that life, and she, felt different. I now know that we were being prepared for the time that we are walking her through at this very moment.
We were so very fortunate that we had many years of words, songs, and mostly laughter from our yellow haired girl. Sadly, those things were eventually lost; but her eyes always showed us that somewhere within, that smile still existed. She taught us how to listen to her in ways unlike the norm. Even now, she is telling us exactly what she needs, and we are listening……and listening well.
We are nearing the end of our physical time with Livia. We are embracing the wait….the hard hard wait. There is a lot of beauty that we are seeing and creating during this sacred time. The love that Livia Grace has created in her 10 years of life is shining exuberantly. My yellow haired girl has always shined like the sun.
You are my sunshine…..
Please pray for all of us during this time. We feel your love. We see your texts, your messages, the photos you share. We see you, and we love you for all the support you have always given us. We are praying for your hearts, too. I hope that when you feel sad or your heart beats a little faster because of what Livia is going through, that you may take that feeling, close your eyes, and think that it’s because of so much love that you are feeling that way. It’s a gift and a fuel for all of us to love and LIV a little harder today, and the days to come.
