This morning, at 4:00 am, it was an absolute privilege to be able to get up and nurse my daughter back to sleep.
I used the time to pray for Sophia. Sophia is 8 months old, and she had a CT scan yesterday morning. They found a brain tumor. It's described as 'advanced'. She is having brain surgery this morning at 8:00 am central time. Please, please, pray for Sophia. She is in God's hands, and her parents are resting in this, but I can't imagine the pain they must be feeling. Please pray for them as well. You can find updates at her father's twitter account here.
And know that I am holding my babies a LOT closer today, and counting each moment a privilege and a precious gift from God.
