I've just come home from Mass. Thought I would check on some of my blogger friends. This just touched my heart. It is written by a Mom about her special daughter.
Lily is my Ladder to Heaven. She will get me there. She will teach me all the things that I need to know to return to my Father in Heaven. I believe this to be true for every parent that has a child with a disability. I can't explain the "pure joy" (words I've used to describe Lily forever!) that these children give to the world. Lily has made me love better, care better, do better.
Please, if you have time, go over to Lily's Blog...it will give you such "pure joy" on a Sunday afternoon. http://lilyslifeisgreat.blogspot.com/2009/07/my-ladder-to-heaven.html The blog is written by Lily and sometimes Mom. The music is young and so uplifting. The pictures are beautiful and the message is inspiring. Enjoy!
PS: I'll write about the 4th of July tomorrow. This just seemed so appropriate for Sunday.
