Now that the stress is over of getting Mason listed for heart transplant, we have entered the next page of this chapter...............The Waiting Game!!! It seems like a dream that we are actually waiting to get Miracle Mason a new perfect heart, his perfect heart, the heart that will give him a new chance at life.
Put Your Trust in God
By President Gordon B. Hinckley
It isn’t as bad as you sometimes think it is.
It all works out. Don’t worry.
I say that to myself every morning.
It will all work out.
Put your trust in God,
and move forward with faith
and confidence in the future.
The Lord will not forsake us.
He will not forsake us.
If we will put our trust in Him,
if we will pray to Him,
if we will live worthy of His blessings,
He will hear our prayers.
(From the funeral program for Marjorie Pay Hinckley, April 10, 2004; see also “Latter-day Counsel,” Ensign, Oct. 2000, 73.)
I know the Lord hears our prayers, if we trust, he will not forsake us! I just have to remind myself often. I will continue to go forward in our "leap of faith" with trust in Him, as well as find the sunshine each day as we wait (even if it's raining)!
Summer and Mason
And just a few last matters of business.
***We have a new address because we've been invited to stay with the Brand Family in the apartment behind their home instead of returning to the Ronald Mcdonald House. For this we are very grateful.
1401 Edgewood Dr, Palo Alto, CA, 94301
***Many people have e-mailed me asking me to post if there is anything we need right now. Besides donations to Mason's trust fund (which is located on the sidebar of the blog) to help with present and future out-of-pocket medical bills, we would also be very grateful to anyone who has flight miles they could gift our family so that Mark and the Kiddos can come visit Mason and I.
Until next time............
