Spending time with Daddy!

   We decided to head up north to spend the weekend with Daddy!
It was SUCH a relief to see him standing in the hotel parking lot waiting for us.
The kids went crazy and Georgia was shouting "I LOOOOOVVVVEEE DADDY!!!!!"

My sweet friend Valerie made this beautiful button for Georgia. When I saw it is just couldn't stop crying.
  If you would like, you can add it to your blog by grabbing the code to the right.

Big hugs!

So Glad you will be able to spend the weekend with Daddy! How relieving that would be. Still praying for Georgia and your family. Saw a car yesterday with a window sticker that said Georgia. Kind of unusual in Washington, but it reminded me to pray for your precious daughter.

Hi, I added your button, but had to remove the extra /.com to get the button to go to your page. Not sure if that is my problem or a code error, but I thought I would mention it.

I'm glad that everything is ok, I just read your previous post, praise YHWH for being with you and comforting you through this time...

Yesterday, an amazing thing happened ~ the night before, I felt impressed to fast for Georgia, and did so all day yesterday. Friends of mine were driving me to New Orleans airport, and we stopped by Mc Donalds as they wanted something to eat, I declined letting them know that I was fasting. Just prior to Mc Donalds, one of them persisted the reason for my fasting, I explained it was for Georgia and explained a bit about her situation (without bringing up her name).

Arriving in McDonalds, both friends went to order food, while I sat and waited, looking out the window. Then something got my eyes widening in surprise In front of me was a road sign, "Georgia"...

When my friends came to join me at the table, I said to one of them, "remember the reason for me fasting? for a little girl?" She said "yes", I said, "what does this road sign say?" She said, "Georgia" I said, "that's her name!" and she was stunned too... she is a strong christian and has been relying on the Lord (YHWH) for guidance as well.

And what's more... I was carrying with me a backpack the printout of your Memorial Box Monday story, I took it and showed it to my friends, and gave it to them.

I have a photo of the street sign with "Georgia" on it, I will email it to you.

May YHWH have mercy on you and your little daughter... hear your prayer cries and answer swiftly...

Hodu la YHWH ki le-olam chasdo

Give thanks to YHWH, for His mercy is forever

2 Chronicles 20:15-22

SO glad you are with Doug for the weekend. AND sorry about the extra .com
I am not sure how that snuck in ... ack! Thankful for those extra pair of eyes that caught it.

Maybe they have some of that really good Seattle Coffee in the hotel lobby? That's one of the things I remember from being in Seattle for our honeymoon. Enjoy a cup for me :-)

I came over from Gretchen's blog--she is a friend of mine. I have two daughter's from China with CHD's--one has TOF. I am going to add your button to my blog and will be praying for your precious Georgia. I am so amazed at all the ways God has sent people to encourage you the past few days. He is good--even when we don't understand what He is doing--He is good.

Oh Shannon, I have been reading and reading and reading to catch up on your blog. I'm so sorry I'm out of touch. This just breaks my heart to see you going through this 'storm' again. KNOW you are in my thoughts and prayers. I love the way God is showing Georgia's name in the neatest ways to people from all over! ...He's creative like that!! ;) I feel a plethora of emotions just reading this. But like you, my hope and trust are in the Lord and know that the price He paid upon that cross, the blood He shed...it was enough...and it was for your sweet Georgia Mei, too!

I'm SO grabbing this button RIGHT NOW!! Isn't Valerie talented! I just love her to pieces. When we were developing our fundraiser for Khloe last spring, I asked if she knew how to make 'buttons'...she did not, but said she always wanted to learn. Well, learn she did...that very day! And now look at her...she's making buttons for everyone, from NewDay to your sweet Georgia Mei. She's unstoppable!! LOVE IT!

Sending BIG hugs your way!

love you,
~Tanya
