The Sun is Shining

This morning I was awakened by the sound of a small cry from across the room on the oversized chair. I had been sleeping on the couch since sometime in the middle of the night when Lincoln wanted to get out of his bed to be with me.  It was dark and I was tired so we went to the living room but he would not stay on the couch. He likes the big chair and he slept through the night once again on it.

Now the sun is up and as I crack the front door to sit outside and write, I can't help but soak in the early morning rays of warmth. Today the sun shines through the clouds of life and reminds me that through rain or storm it will always be shining. Lincoln has many days ahead on the road to recovery and some will be intense. Meds twice a day, extra on the weekend, clinic twice a week to draw blood and check counts and lumbar punctures once a month for a boost of treatment to protect his brain. He doesn't realize that his sister didn't have to go through this at his age but he is going through with it. The overcast we seem to have so much in Oregon doesn't compare to the treatments he has ahead but the sun is still shining and we wait patiently for those days. We may not have a great summer and this one will be short with the late spring weather but the sun will rise and another day with my son is all I need.

Give thanks to the lord, for he is good.
His love endures forever.
to him who alone does great wonders,
His love endures forever.
who made the great lights—
His love endures forever.
the sun to govern the day,
His love endures forever.
the moon and stars to govern the night;
His love endures forever. (Psalm 136
