- Every night when Mark and I put Elyssa to bed, we all pray together. Mark leads the prayer, of course. In his prayer he will pray for the same things most every night. He says ...
"Lord, thank you for today and for all Your blessings. God bless Natalie, Grandmother, Granddaddy, Mee Maw, Paw Paw, Pastor... (Elyssa fills in "Ed" and names off Kayla and Josh after Pastor Ed. She always forgets to say Tyler, so we fill his name in!), Aunt Sarah and Aunt Karen and others. And, God bless baby Victoria's ... (and Elyssa fills in ... ) HEART!"
While traveling to Birmingham on Tuesday afternoon, we called Elyssa on the phone to let her know that were on our way to Birmingham. We told her that we were taking Victoria to a hospital where they would fix her heart. Immediately Elyssa blurted out ... "OH BOY!!!" She was so excited for her sister!
On Thursday afternoon, we spoke to her and asked her what the doctors were going to do for Victoria. She said, "They are fixing her heart!"
What a joy it is to see the love Elyssa has for her little sister! Oh Boy!
