Small Miracles {Glitter in the Hospital} + day 11

As I gather my thoughts for this ‘small miracles’ post, I am literally drained. But I am determined to celebrate hope, even on the yuckiest of days.

Last night Pete and I went to visit Princess Nevaeh and her Daddy. At first we read books, many many books. After about 5-6 books I asked her if she’d be alright coloring.

To my amazement, she said YES! It has been forever since I’ve seen her with that much energy. We drew butterflies, flowers and used a ridiculous amount of glitter. I gotta hand it to the hospital, they do an excellent job of supplying no end of art supplies, and good ones at that!

I walked away with a little more hope than I’ve had in a while. Feeling deeply blessed for the privilege of sharing that sweet moment with her. She has no idea how special she really is. And she has no idea how many lives she has already touched.

I am pretty sure the hospital room is a shimmering mess this morning, but I think it was worth it. To see her smile.
