Thnking of YOU today my Godson

D'Vante my #1 Buddy Pal Godson
Meniscus Surgery

While I cannot be with him,
my energy is surrounding him
my prayers are with the surgeon
who is repairing the knee
of my boy.

We will be with him in spirit
right there in his heart,
he knows that, we've talked about it already.
surgery is no fun
especially for a 16 year old,
the fear has to be there,
the wonderings, the afraid moments,
boys don't like to talk about such things much.
We've talked "heart to heart" about it though
he "gets it" ...
I'll be with him,
he will not be alone,
and his Mom, Dot, Linda will be at the hospital too.
I will be standing by for the phone call
to hear that he did A-OK.
And then it will
be the heal time,
that will be the roughest part I'm sure.

#51 of the Radford Bobcats
Offensive Lineman who played on that injured knee all season, and limped badly here during the holidays.

I will be focused on the outcome today,
focused on a great result
as he goes under the skillful hands
and knocked out for the first time
in his young life.

I would like to ask you all
to give
D'Vante good thoughts across the winds,
we remember he is
16 ~
Thinking he will get this done
be ready to run and do what we do
at 16 in a couple of days!
Might have to fly up there and tie him down,
for now
I only pray they are able to take care of what
needs to be repaired.

So for today,
I ask all to keep my Godson in your thoughts, your prayers.

My Heart, Buddy Pal and Me
On The Boardwalk
(He had his swagga on, + a limp then)
soon he will be better than best!
D'Vante will be surrounded by those who love him,
they will be sure he is well taken care of,
I will wait for news that he is out of surgery,
that all is done.
for today,
I will keep the prayers strong
the focus steady
as it should be.

So friends,
for today,
I leave you with this, to think on.

Go Forward With Courage
When you are in doubt, be still, and wait; when doubt no longer exists for you, then go forward with courage.  So long as mists envelop you, be still; be still until the sunlight pours through and dispels the mists -- as it surely will. Then act with courage.
Ponca Chief White Eagle (1800's to 1914)

The fire is burning brightly, its embers are hot... Thoughts are filling the winds to all who are remembered and thought of in the prayer bowl, and all who enter here.  Blessings to you and yours.

Walk In Beauty,

Prayers on the wind for him and family there and for you, as you wait by the phone. Waiting is the hardest part.

Good Morning All,
Don't think I have slept a wink...will be so glad for this surgery to be over with. Lil Kam woke up about an hour ago after having a bad dream and said he need to go give brother a kiss. Not sure what the dream waa about...said he didn't want to talk about it but I guess even at 9 years old he too is worried.
I cooked him a great dinner last night knowing he couldn't eat after midnight so atleast I know he went to bed full...
He is hoping to go to a basketall game tonight!! Guess he will be changing his mind by game time!
I too ask for you to keep him in your prayers as well as the family~~
Cuz I will be texting you so have your phone on and charged!!
Luv to all~~

Had to turn on the coffee pot. D'Vante is in the best surgeon's hands there are...the Creator. You are right that kamyrn too feels the anxiety that comes with surgery for D'Vante. I pray the minutes fly by and soon you are looking at D'Vante's face as he wakens and surgery is all over. Prayers for all of you.
GREAT pic of you and D'Vante, Sherry. The love for reach other leaps off of that picture to the reader. :)
You are such a comforting person. I can visualize you and D"Vante having the talk so that he knows and is prepared and knows you are there with him. Your life work and experiences hae created and molded you into a special person that not only touches her loved ones...but touches the world around you. Just as the eagle spreads it's massive wing span, so do you spread your gift of compassion, love and understanding to those you come in contact with.
I pray the Creator continues to bless you and yours.

I have been saying prayers for #51 since two nights ago--of course, he will be OK-How can he not? Look who he has for family! He has a godmother who is incredibly strong and she has a whole bunch of Angels(warriors) willing to STOMP for D'Vante. I just know he will fine-of course he will have to listen to the Doc's-being a teenager, well, I do feel sorry his Mom!
Getting ready to watch The President speak about the past week's events. Talk to ya soon.
