Izza's Prayer


Last night when the girls were taking turns with their own prayers, Izza's went something like this:
Heavenly Father,
Please bless Emily can have her surgery and get better and not be sick so I can say hi to her and not be in trouble. Thank you for Jesus and Heavenly Father to protect us. Bless Olivia not to be sick and have surgery.
Say these things.... Amen

I tried not to cry while she prayed. It was so sweet and so sad for me. Isabelle has had to stay away from Emily since the twins were born. She can so easily get Emily sick from all the germs she carries. Of course I will wash and sanitize her from head to toe and then allow it. Since the RSV and the push back of the surgery I have been super cautious. I have a hard time letting anyone near her without cringing inside. So, in general, Izza does get in trouble when she says hi to Emily. :( I can't wait until Em is healthy and strong and we can all be together all of the time!!

That prayer is heart warming! Hang in there. Your efforts are definitely worth it! I cringe every time my kids get in Tyce's face. Why do they have to touch his eyes and face? And why do they have to get right in his face? I guess we're still learning about boundaries!

Oh bless her! What a sweet spirit she has. With prayers like that Emily will be just fine. I know I'm a ways away but if you need anything let me know. It's not a far drive and I am more than happy to do it. Your family is in our prayers.

How frustrating to have to wait longer for the surgery. I hope it all happens soon for you! What a beautiful prayer. I think we have children to remind us what Faith really is...
