4 Years ago, we were given an amazing gift. A rebirth of our son. At 5:30 am we handed over our son to the surgeon who would repair his heart. It was the most terrifying thing I have ever done in my life. What if he didn't make it? We held our breath until we got the call from the nurse saying he made it off by-pass. Then it was another two days before we knew everything was going to be OK. He was out of the woods. See, Roman was born with a Congenital Heart Disease called Tetrology of Fallot. This is a condition where not only is there a whole in the heart, but the pulmonary and aorta valve are not attached. Thankfully, this could be repaired. He still needs additional surgeries, but we are grateful for every day we have with this little boy. He is such a joy! I love when he makes up little songs and sings. I love how kind he is to everyone and his giant big smile. I love how he gets obsessed with an author like Dr. Seuss or Eric Carle and wants to read everything that author has written. He is totally obsessed with Super Hero's and the funny thing is he is my Super Hero. Thank you Heavenly Father for the gift of life!
I love to read! I have been know to devour a novel in a day. In fact, I have to be careful about starting books because once I do I have a hard time putting them down which isn't a good thing when you are a mother of three children with one on the way. While some books are easily forgotten, I have read many good books that have touched me in one way or another. They linger like the scent of a perfume. They have touched my soul or changed me to be a better person. The Secret Life of Bees is one of those books that I could read over and over. Another favorite of mine is Water for Elephants. What is your favorite book?
