I have news...BIG NEWS!
News that has thrown this house into a state of uncontainable excitement!
Here it comes...
The Williams Family is going to Disney World!
This amazing opportunity is being provided by the Make a Wish Organization of Western NY. All children with a life-threatening illness are eligible for a wish, and we have known for sometime that Brady qualified. It wasn't until LAST WEEK that we learned that Disney was going to happen. AND it wasn't until Monday when we learned that we were officially going!
There's more! Are you sitting down?
We leave for Disney a week from Sunday!!! We will be there for a week and just typing these words gives me chills!
Details and arrangements are being finalized every minute between our Wish Coordinator and I. Have I mentioned the packing that needs to happen? Yikes!
And yes, we are bringing the grandparents with us so that we can actually have at least one adult per child and so that we don't lose a child or two along the way:)
So the secret is out! What can I say other than, God is good!
You don't ever anticipate the blessings that will come your way when a crisis hits your family. God's love for us is amazing, wonderful, and yes, sometimes surprising! When you come face to face with cancer and death, you realize that there isn't a guarantee on the birth certificates of the ones you love. In Brady's case, it certainly seems that the risks are greater, but in truth, each and every life is a fragile and precious gift.
My prayer is that this trip is a wonderful time to enjoy God's greatest gift to me here on this Earth...my family!
