Did you ever wonder how a child ended up with a specific mother?
According to Sufi mysticism, the soul of the child looks down at the world
And sees every soul that resides in every woman.
When he finds the one that will be able to help him fulfill his life’s purpose, he makes his choice.
The relationship between the mother and child is no accident.
At times the child may reject his mother and wish he had a different one.
Remember your soul made the choice for a reason. This woman can help you live your purpose.

Michelle had a very touching wake up call today…at around 5:30am she felt something touching her face and when she opened her eyes it was her “baby” caressing her face and blowing her kisses. He told his mama that he wanted to eat and mama and baby ate croissants together and watched Bob the Builder for about half an hour until they both fell asleep. A pretty awesome experience for them both to share. I was glad they had it…
Today…Well today was another day in this tough journey. I feel like we are still in a state of shock regarding our warrior. We took some time early this morning to go with my aunt Linda to see the children’s section where AA will lie in peace shortly which I had not seen. We decided on the final design for his headstone, while getting him his beautiful and angelic white suit. He will be arriving to Heaven in style. We got him a beautiful white three button suit with a white vest, shirt and bow tie. It is something we never thought we would have to do and I broke down when I gave Michelle the money to pay the bill. A very hard thing to do. We also had to go to the funeral home to drop off AA’s suit and some toys that he will be taking with him to Heaven. We decided to have AA’s viewing as a one night function and he will be remembered through pictures as we observe him in a closed casket. We were happy that my mom and our hospice RN Kristi were able to help us this morning and watch AA while he is in fairly stable condition in order for us to perform these duties. He overall had a good day and was up speaking and ate a bit more. He watched Bob and Chuggington as well. He also had a “moment” with his Child Life Specialist Alyson when he threw her a kiss. Persistence pays off Alyson! J He also had a plaster mold done of his cute hands and he actually did not fuss about it. For us, we actually had our first counseling session. It is something that we will be using in order to help us cope with such an event and to help us stay together. Modern day statistics state that 50% of marriages end up in divorce and 95% of parents of children with cancer end up in divorce. Obviously, we want to do everything we can to stay together and we were both happy that we did it. It was productive and we were on the same page for so many things. We did this because we want to be proactive and work on our feelings, not because we are having issues. We are pretty amazed at how well we have been handling this whole experience as a team….
