A Fairytale

I know my name isn't Arora, from Sleeping Beauty, Bell, from Beauty and the Beast, Ariel, from The Little Mermaid, or Snow White, from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, but today, I felt like I was in a fairytale! It started with this morning, Cale seemed a little different. I'm not sure what's going on, I'm guessing, (or maybe just really hoping!) that he's starting to wake up a little more. I feel like he knows at times who I am and that I'm there, for a few minutes, Cale would hold my hand and even let me lay my head on his chest, before all of a sudden pushing me away really fast. Today, I would tell him it's okay that I'm there, I'm his wife! :) It was like that on and off for over an hour. Then, it was 3pm, I had just finished a book, and decided I was going to lay next to him. Well, this if it happens at all, usually lasts 2 minutes tops! Why not try? So, I laid down next to him and after adjusting for a minute or so, I had my head on his chest, his arm around me, and we were holding hands! Awe! So sweet! It gets better...we stayed that way for 52 minutes! When he finally did push me away it was 3:52. Oh my goodness! It was amazing! It was SO great! I got to cuddle with my husband and he let me! It might not seem so huge because he's laying in a bed all day so that should be normal, but he really NEVER lets me close like that. He's so restless and hates being messed with so he's always pushing everyone away. He held me! It truly felt like a fairytale. I'm going to hold on to this moment for as long as I need to until I get the next one!

  3. Such wonderful news Kathleen!! Remember....as you "snuggle" under Cale's arms....there is Someone else who is holding you even closer. I can't believe that this is the song that the Lord gave me to share with you today...It's called: "Safe in His Arms" by Phil Wickham.....

    "You will be safe in His arms
    You will be safe in His arms
    'Cause the hands that hold the world are holding your heart
    This is the promise He made
    He will be with You always
    When everything is falling apart
    You will be safe in His arms"

    Be encouraged!!! The Lord is letting you know that you and Cale are safe in the Shepard's loving arms.....

  8. Dearest sweet Kathleen! God is faithful...he loves your wonderful spirit and that you fully trust his ways. You are so courageous and strong, wise and loving. You are a wonderful virtuous woman and a blessing to so many of us as you walk this journey beside your beloved husband. Indeed HE has plans for you both...each day will reveal more and more.

  12. Hey kathleen!
    I'm not sure you remember me, but i went to church with your and Rachel for about a year. I'm so sorry that this has happened to you and Cale. It's great that you have fabulous friends and family and your faith to get you through. i just want to say miracles can happen. my mother went through the same thing when she was 22.
    I've been "lurking" for sometime but this entry was particularly exciting. i'm so happy for you and cale!!!
