I really, really wanted Holly's lip repair to be completed before Easter. I was thinking what a nice thing it would be to have post-surgery pretty Easter pictures of our new and improved family. I know: I have priority issues...
But I got one part of my prayer answered, Holly's surgery was before Easter. And another prayer answered that I didn't even know about. Having this scheduled right at Eastertime has given me a new perspective on the whole experience. It would be very easy to sink into a little despair and pity. Not that I haven't shed a tear or two.
Still Easter week does throw a whole new light on our current situation. This is tough, and it is sad to see Holly this way, when all the other little girls will be in Easter dress.
But it was worse for Him and His mother.
