Perspective - "You are all I need"

Sara: "Mommy, before I came to you, were you sad?"
Mommy: "Yes, I was so sad."
Sara: "Did you cry?"
Mommy: "Yes, I cried sad tears. But guess what I did when you came?"
Sara: "You cried happy!"
Mommy: "Yes, I did, lots of happy tears."
Sara: " When Ethiopia opens up, you can cry happy tears again."
Mommy: "Yes. But you know what? You make me happy everyday. You are all I need, Sara. You are all I need, forever."

Wow...even in your saddness you are able to find the simple but meaningful words that comfort Sara!
....."Yes. But you know what? You make me happy everyday. You are all I need, Sara. You are all I need, forever."

I wish the words there were more powerful words than I LOVE YOU to let you know how much you mean to me....but that is all I've got....I LOVE YOU!

Your baby sister,
Michelle

I thought I would let you know that Bradon called me tonight and was only concerned about talking about Auntie Laura and Uncle Chad because Gramps saw you on the news!

He wanted to know if we (meaning our family) were going to try to fix it and he told me that we will have to love you lots! He said that he was sad for you but you were lucky you had Sara to love! I thought that he was very wise in his simply put statements.....

I just thought you would want to know that he too is thinking of you both! He is hoping that we will all have fun next weekend!

The Lord moves in strange and mysterious ways, don't give up your dream, Laura. Miracles happen, we look at Sara and know that!
