Belief… like a heated stone tossed into a cool, still pond. Warm nourishing ripples spread outwards from the soul and not only give strength to ones own physical being, but lap encouragingly against others as it spreads further from its source. The ripple is absorbed, reflected, returned and even sent on to others. As that gentle ripple meets another believing source, it is not only reflected, but amplified and the ripple grows stronger. Add another source, and another and what ...
was once a tiny ripple has now turned into a powerful wave, a force so great that it can, that it will shape anything it touches.
“Truly wonderful, the mind of a child is” – Yoda
The quote may come from a movie, but the truth is hardly lacking. How amazing a child’s imagination can be that they may take a couple of couch cushions, a sheet, their favorite doll or teddy bear and create this immense magical world around them. Believing was never a question of what you could see, or touch, or feel… it was what your heart told you existed. Well, a friend of mine’s child believes that he will be out playing, laughing, growing up just like everyone else his age because that is what his heart tells him. Connor a beautiful boy of almost 2 years will be having surgery today to remove a tumor from his brain. Let us add our belief to his and make a roaring wave filled with love, prayers, and positive thoughts that will carry him safely and successfully through his challenge.
All my love – Teej
Post Surgery Update Tuesday 10pm “Can’t beging to express our gratitude for all the love and support we have gotten from you all over the past few days. The ‘tidal wave’ of good energy and prayer has truly carried us during this challenging period. Stage 1 is complete, as the racquet ball sized tumor was removed from Connor’s brain. He was awake this afternoon, and the first three words out of his mouth were: Mommy, Daddy….and of course Elmo. We will know more about next steps as the week progresses but this is a major step in the right direction! Again, we truly appreciate your continued support, positive vibes, and prayer. Thank you so much!” – John (Connor’s Dad)
