Of Sparkle and Heaven and Swimming Pools

Just a brief update and a truly heart-felt thank you to those of you who prayed for my Bella-Girl.

She had only one other episode on Thursday night, but it was short-lived and much less terrifying. Her fever has stayed high until today and she is happy and skipping and bouncing through her days.

I have been in bed the past three days with the same fever and mine has moved into my chest so I cough incessantly… Good grief, y’all, the coughing! I am going to have six-pack abs by the time this coughing stops! *grin*

Because of her fever, she’s remained house-bound with me, but she stays busy with her dolls and books and a movie or two. She chatters away to me constantly, and it is wonderful to have her sparkle brightening our days again.

“Mommy,” she calls from her bedroom, then skips to my bedroom door, “I wonder what heaven will be like?” I smile at her and hold out my hand, she moves to take it and says, “I think it will be like swimming in a swimming pool.” She lets go of my hand and skips back out of the room turning at the doorway to smile and add, “You know? Surrounded by joy!”

Thank you, my friends, for praying for my girl.

Her sparkle is an amazing gift for this momma’s heart.

    How will she know the difference? She seems to be “surrounded by joy” now. Glad she is feeling better. Looking for answers to prayer that you will soon, too.
