Well, this week has definitely been a challenge! Yikes! Those times will come, but I have to keep pushing on!
There were two moments today with Cale that were so great! First, Cale always plays with my rings on my fingers. I call him a pirate because he slips them off, puts them on his fingers, and then doesn't let me have them back with out a battle. He stays so calm too, it's like he knows he has them and he's stronger then me. Today when he was taking them off and I was putting up my usual fight, he grabbed my hand with his right (the one he doesn't use much) and then with his left hand he took them off my fingers...he used both hands together! He also won the battle :) mostly because I stopped fighting as I watched in amazement!
Later, while I was sitting on the bed, Cale reached up and touched my face. Not the same touch that he always does, this time it was with his finger tips and he was feeling every detail in my face. He did it for 10 minutes straight, just moving across my eyes, nose, cheeks, lips, ears, and hair. The next 10 minutes were off and on, playing with my hair and then touching my face again. I made sure to tell the nurse right away. It was so special! I really felt like he knew it was me. I was trying to get him to respond to commands while he was touching because at the time I felt like he was so much more awake. Nothing yet, but I'm excited to see if this next week will show anything.
What a sweet kiss from the Lord. He picked me up off the dirty floor, brushed me off, and gave me a kiss to mend my broken heart. He truly is with me, holding me, loving me more then words can describe. I'm so blessed!
