A Welcome Distraction

Soon our family will be escaping for a while. Just what are we escaping from?

For my kids, they will have a whole entire week out of this house! If you add it up, they will be out of this house for more hours than they probably have been out in the last 6 months! They will be escaping the daily monotony of our schedule. They won't have to pick up toys, wait for daddy to get home, or wander around looking for something to do. There will be no doctor's appointments, no scans, no x-rays, just pure fun!

For Matt and I we will be escaping many of our daily chores. Just think, a whole week without vacuuming, wiping down highchairs, or doing dishes! Did I mention that I won't cook a single meal next week??!?

But as much as we will escape, we will still carry all of the worry about Brady will us on our trip. I'm having trouble forgetting that a few days after we get back we will be heading to the spinal specialist to decide on a plan to treat the deformity that has started. I know that the urine testing I have put off for a few weeks will have to get done when we get back.

I guess that is what makes the Make a Wish Foundation so amazing though. By granting this wish for our family, we will all be able to allow the distractions of Disney world to try and chase away our worry and fear. For next week I'm going to take the cancer world, tuck it in my back pocket, and tell it that I have better things to do for a while:)

By the way...did I mention that we are getting picked up in a limo?


  1. MOVE THAT LIMO!!!!!!!!!!!!! We can't wait to see you off!!!!!!!

  2. Have lots of sunshiny fun! We hope that it is warm for you all.
    Wishing you safe travels and happy days...

  3. Meg, You hit the nail on the head! For a week put all of the worrying behind you and enjoy the time together, to build memories, to watch the joy and wonder on their faces, to see Disney through the eyes of your children's and to enjoy the warm sunshine. There will be plenty of time to wonder about what it next for Brady. Throw those worries out the window and enjoy the blessings from our Lord!!!!!!

    Have a blast!!
    Love, Deb R.

  4. Not a more deserving family could anybody find!!
    Enjoy the happiest place on earth..and celebrate where that little guy has come since last Easter time!!! Last year we were praying you through Sloan Kettering..this year..praying you have all sunshine in Florida.
    GOD IS GOOD!!!

  5. Hi Megan. I have been following your blog for the past year and pray for your family all the time. I just wanted to let you know that my family and I just got back from Disney yesterday (2/17)after being there for 10 days. The weather was very cold and rainy. We were not prepared for that at all! Even if the weather predicts a 60 degree day---- the windchill can make it seem like 40. Please bring lots of warm clothes for that beautiful family of yours! Laura Borchert
