I'm Afraid to Think It!

I'm afraid to think it, but it just may be that this virus might leave the rest of us alone? Matt made it back to work today which I thought was downright amazing. So far, the other 5 Williams' seem to be okay. Short of spraying Matt down with Lysol, I think I did a pretty decent job of washing and sanitizing everything he touched. Poor guy...I think I make him feel like he had leprosy or something:(

I grabbed my Eli today and we took a drive to bring daddy lunch at work. He was so cute as he walked in holding the container and said, "Here's your lunch daddy!" Afterward we had to pick up some things at Target. As I stopped at the foil pan section, Eli pointed at the pans and said, "Oooo! Chinese for dinner...Yes!" I'm not sure if you get the connection, but the Chinese place we get take out from once in a while serves the food to you in foil pans! As we checked out he and the cashier were talking back and forth. He proudly showed her his baseball hat and said, "Here's my hat! You like it?" Of course she replied that she liked it very much. Then he said, pointing to me, "This is my mommy. She's nice!" Ooo, he is the sweetest:)

We are coming up on a big milestone in Brady's journey. It was one year ago that we prepared for our final battle (God willing) with Neuroblastoma. On March 31st last year we headed to NYC for Brady's consultation appointment and testing leading up to his surgery on April 6th. Reading my words from that time brings me right back to the mountain of emotion that I was feeling.

Joshua 1:9
"Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go."
Thank you God for the truth in Your word. Thank you for this verse. Please make me the strongest most courageous mom I can be. I trust that You will be with me wherever I go...You'll be with me as I kiss my sweet babies goodbye, You'll be with me as I hold Brady on the airplane knowing where we are going, You'll be with me as I walk to the hospital with him on April 6th, and You'll be with me as I sit and wait during his surgery. Thank you for your promises, and thank you that they are true for me, for Brady, and for everyone who trusts in You. Amen

It is a pretty cool thing to actually have a prayer from a year ago written down. By reading it and thinking about the events of the last year, I can actually see how God has been faithful. I'm not talking about God making our lives without problems, worries, or obstacles. Of course we continue to experience all of those. I'm talking about the part where God tells us that He will be with us wherever we go. And He has been. He was with us the night before we left, as we tried to sleep with the weight of the world on our shoulders. He was with us the morning of Brady's surgery, as we held him tight as unimaginable fear was weighing on our hearts. And He has been with us, sustaining us, encouraging us, and blessing us every day since.

Wherever you are tonight, I pray that you know that God is with you wherever you are:)


  1. Megan,
    Your future is right here in this message:
    sharing your faith in written word. How wonderful to look back one year and see how your faith sustained you through that time.
    Eli's words were also priceless!
