Surreal

I'm not overjoyed, I'm not emotional, I'm just here.
It is such a surreal feeling.
I haven't quite digested that this is real.
It will hit me and probably when I least expect it.
Addie's teacher's told me today that she had taken FOUR independent steps.
I just smiled and nodded.
We got her home and started putting her to the test.
On very shaky legs she stood.
There was a step, maybe two.
How many prayers have I asked you to pray over the last
880 days
or
2 years 4 months 29 days
or
76,032,000 seconds
or
1,267,200 minutes
or
21,120 hours
or
125 weeks
However you choose to calculate.
How many prayers?
Too many to count.
Our God is with us and blessing us and my gratitude goes to each and every one of you who spent countless hours in prayer for Addie.
How selfish am I?
I now ask of you to please continue your prayer.
Our journey is never ending and the road is long.
Please help me to continue to share God's grace.
