A Father's View

So excited to share some words from my husband!  Read on as he gives his take on things…

Talk about a roller coaster of emotions--that has been our lives for the past 3 weeks.  It was the worst diagnosis a father could ever receive, followed by the best prognosis a father could ask for.  That doesn't make it any easier.

Paige is great.  She's tough, strong, stubborn, and just plain not going to give up.  As parents, we were honest with her from the beginning.  The doctors speak to all three of us--it's her body, her illness, and she will now everything.  In the end, though, it's so hard watching her battle through this.

This last week has been tough.  I went back to work and wasn't there for her.  It's hard to get back to normal when normal isn't what she's dealing with.  I will admit I couldn't ask for a better group of co-workers, and they've been great with me through this so far.  

I get my Monday nights to bowl--which has been okay so far.  My mind stays on her, which helps me forget the little things that would normally aggravate me.

Through all of this, God has guided us, provided for us, and continues to lead us.  He has a plan--I don't know it, but it's there.  Paige has affected so many people, and she will help and guide many others.  "How?" you say.  Who knows?  God knows, and now it's time to sit back and let Him do His work.

As a father shows compassion to his children, so the Lord shows compassion to those who fear Him.  Psalm 103:13
