That's What I love about Sundays...

Pepere, Alex, and Memere

We had nearly all the kids here today for Sunday supper.
Alex was awake for a long time, looking and smiling at us.
Tho he can't cry anymore, he can still make tiny sounds, and he was cooing and nearly laughing as Pete was playing with his tootsies.

Alex and his Memere

We are cherishing each and every precious minute with our little grandson.
We both put up a good front while everyone is here, but later...
we are both wiping tears.

It's hard.

Pin It!

Tears are understandable! He is a beautiful boy and those are some adorable pictures. Keeping you and your family in my prayers! It breaks my heart to think of what you all are going through and it makes me hug my two a little tighter.

I love both pictures. The one with you holding him, he sure has his eyes on you!

The pictures and Alex are precious. This is a gentle and precious time, one when we wish eternity would stand still.

May you and your family feel the presence of God continually.

Prayers & blessings,

There are a lot of things in this world that I truly don't understand. Alex is the number one item on my list. Many prayers for you and your entire family.

Your little Alex is beautiful!
Today at church I met the sweetest boy (his Mom was pretty great too). He saw me in the hall and ran up and hugged my legs. For no reason other than to be sweet. He's 18 months so we went to the nursery where he played with my six month old. He constantly was hugging us, giving us toys, stroking our faces, etc. He was the sweetest little soul. He has Cystic Fibrous. His lungs sounded like rusty machinery choking along.
Between meeting him and reading about your precious Alex, I feel like God is gently reminding me of His sovereignty & that He will be Glorified in all things and that He has a plan greater than my own. To see women, such as yourself, maintain such grace in the face of such hardships has been so inspiring. I'm praying for your family. Alex is so blessed that his days here on Earth are being filled to the brim with so much love. What a testament & reflection of Christ! God bless you and your family.

Continually bearing you and your family up in prayer before the Father. The picture of you and Alex is lovely. I'm glad you have it. He is so very precious.
On the way to church tonight I was missing my Dad more than usual. I talked with the kids about how that knowing Jesus as your Savior means that one day we'll all be together again.
May the God of all comfort saturate your family with His Presence as you continue this journey.

Sending you hugs, Cindy...
Your love, that little Alex feels in his tiny body and in his big heart will last forever...
I pray for him and for all of you every day.

I'm teary as I's hard! May the LORD continue to give you HIS grace day by day. How precious that they live near enough to have "hands-on" time.

In His Love,

What a precious & handsome little fellow he is. I can not fathom the pain you must be having. Only through our Lords Grace can any of us get through times like this. Knowing the outcome will still be to His Glory.
God Bless and praying
