Will You Take A Minute?

To send prayers, peaceful thoughts, or whatever it is you believe or follow to a family who needs peace?

A gorgeous 2 year old who has a massive cancerous tumor (Stage 4 Neuroblastoma) in her abdomen.  After months of fighing, her battle is about to end.  I don't know how I manage to stumble across these things but that's kinda just what happens in the blogging world.  And with Layla Grace, I follow mostly through Twitter (I don't even have an acct so how I stumbled across this story really is a mystery.)
First, I found sweet Kate.  
A beautiful blonde sweetie who is battling a brain tumor.  
And then there is Jonah
Oh, what a beautiful young boy who was born with an extremely rare genetic skin disorder called Epidermolysis Bullosa.   
And now it's Layla Grace that I find myself thinking about, as she sleeps and her family waits for her to take her final breath.

I find myself thinking about these kids throughout the day.  I don't know why they are under my skin and in my thoughts.  I've never met them.  Chances are good I never will meet them.  In a world with millions of people, I haven't a clue why my path crossed these stories nor WHY I end up finding the stories that bring me to tears.  And put me on my knees by my child's bed as I thank God for a healthy, strong child.  

In my heart, I know God laid out the path for these kiddos.  And the path of their families.  

I ache to share their stories.  Just as God intended.

But, for now, I ask you to pray for peace for Layla Grace's Mommy and Daddy.  They need it.
