Strong. Determined. Just Plain Tough. Paige has always been independent and mature beyond her years--sometimes a little more than this mom was ready to handle. I have always known God gave me an amazing kid, but from the initial diagnosis to now seven days in, she has displayed a strength unlike anything I could have imagined. Time for another blood draw? Okay. More meds--maybe with side effects? Bring it. Going to lose hair? It will grow back.
As parents, we want to protect our kiddos from the bad stuff. What I'm accepting more and more through this whole thing is that I am not in control. God is in control. He gives Paige the strength to push through sudden feelings of nausea and headaches. He gives her the determination to fight and win this battle. He will keep revealing amazing parts of His plan for her life and give her an incredible testimony that is going to be 'her story.'
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13
