A prayer for Melissa

Last night I tossed and turned in my sleep. A good friend of mine had had a Dr. appt that day and was going to be recieving important news. I waited impatiently til today to call and see how she was doing, so when I woke up and saw that she had called I knew it was ok to call back and find out the news. After being on bedrest for 2 months unfortunately,she recieved bad news, involving surgeries and a 9 week premature baby. After receiving the news I cried. Then I pulled myself togther eager to be by her side, made all the arrangements and got to the hospital. I am terrible in these kind of situations. Words have never been my strong point. At this point all I can do is cry, pray and give them my love.

Melissa was hoping for a miracle. As I sit here and think about her, I feel like we have already been given a little miracle. In the short time I have known her I found her to be an incredibly strong woman, A loving and giving mother, and a true friend. Our ability to Love and grow, and survive is a miracle to me. To see the members of our church come together to support her family {of 10} during this time just overwhelms me. My prayer for her is that her body will be as strong as her spirit. That she will know and feel how much she is loved and that it will be enough.

If you have moment today stop and say a prayer for Melissa, for her and her baby's safety. You can never underestimate the power of a prayer.

So sorry to hear this. You're a good friend and I'm sure she can feel your love even if you may not always feel like you know what to say. Sending prayers.
