A Season for Joy

A Season for Joy

Earlier this year I posted about a little girl from Texas who had been hospitalized and was fighting for her life after her organ transplant began to fail. This week Ashley came home to Texas (the photo above was taken by her mom and posted on her blog several days ago). Ashley’s story is one of faith, one of hope, one of courage…and now one of joy. Her story is uplifting at times, and at other times it can be devastating. I have laughed and I have cried while reading her mother’s words. Ultimately, I always feel incredibly lucky to be able to know Ashley because of her mother’s courage in sharing her story.

During this Christmas season, I am reminded once again of the tremendous gift of life we have been given – and which we should celebrate with joy.

May Ashley’s first Christmas at home (rather than in a hospital bed) be filled with joy and peace, laughter and love. Merry Christmas, Ashley!
