William

If you could please lift up some prayers for my little William, he has been running a fever for three days. :( He's normally at school for a few hours on Mondays and Tuesdays, but hasn't been so I am behind on my crafting, although I'm "crafting in my mind" and have a few specific projects planned for when he is better.Here is a picture of him I took on Sunday, just a few hours before he started running his fever. We were out letter boxing and he found his own treasure floating on the river, a stargazer lily (just the bloom, no stem), it was wet but the delicate petals were perfect and smelled heavenly! I can only imagine it came from a wedding or something that happened earlier that day somewhere upstream and floated down our way... He was SO excited to bring it home and show his daddy..and then a big DOG came over and ATE it, right out of his hand! :( (Owner did not apologize... sniff) Poor little guy was heart broken, I'm so glad I at least got a pic before that happened.


We'll be going to the doctor tomorrow if he hasn't improved, I'll keep you posted! Thank you for your prayers, and if you could pray the rest of our family can stay healthy after this (I'm not feeling the best today, but hoping it's just lack of sleep the past few nights from sitting up with him... is it hot in here? yikes! ugh!!), I'd so appreciate it!

Oh no, the poor little guy. Sure hope he's feeling better.

Melanie - send prayers your way. I hope William wakes up tomorrow, fever free. Then you can get some rest, he can get back to playing and life can get back to normal. What a wonderful picture; William is precious ~ and that flower is beautiful. William looks so innocent holding the flower out like that. I can't believe the owner of that dog didn't even apologize. Some people....

William, I hope and pray that you are feeling better in the morning. I know you would rather be out playing.
That sure was a big, beautiful flower you found. I am glad your Mommy got a picture of you with it. It will be a great one to scrapbook.

Extra prayers covering William ....
It's never fun to watch your sick child - waiting for them to get better. Hang in there Mom (& Dad!)

I have never seen a stargazer lily that huge! That is one of my favorite flowers - I used them at our wedding 15 1/2 years ago!
