Tomorrow morning we are going to take trays full of treats (that our family & friends have been baking & putting together for us) around to the hospital, my doctor’s office and her pediatrician’s office – all the places Lulu was cared for while she was here. And then tomorrow after the boys get home from school, we are going to cater a meal to Dayton Children’s NICU and the Home Health Care. We want to say thank you.

My friend Susan, that I met at the Respite Retreat back in February, and her family catered a meal to their local NICU for their daughter, Lily’s birthday. I love the idea of celebrating and saying “thank you” at the same time. I will be thinking of you, Susan & your beautiful little girl as we head back to our NICU for the first time since bringing Lulu home.

I made up some thank you cards, to tie to the trays, with a photo of Lulu & a big “L” cut out of scrapbook paper to tie to the front with ribbon. I wanted something that could say the thank you I feel in my heart, just in case I cannot get the words out of my mouth.

I am believing that it will be a WONDERFUL day. I will choose to see the JOY in it. I will look for God’s PEACE throughout the entire day.

  1. My heart is with you, sweet friend. What a beautiful way to honor Lulu!! I celebrate her with you. We carry her in our hearts every day! I’m praying that God’s healing continues to pour through you and you go through your day! Love you!

  2. Cami, this is a wonderful post. I’m so happy to hear you seeing the joy in this day. We’ll be thinking of and praying for you and your family…

  3. You cannot imagine the army of loving prayers and arms that are holding you. We cannot imagine the hushed awe and honor of angels that watch you turn your own grief into blessing for others. I imagine them s-l-o-w-l-y turning their hoary heads and giant wings to look at teeny, tiny Lulu. I see them grinning at her giggling and clapping her hands at all the fuss on earth made over her special earth day. Her story – God’s glory – on earth as it is in heaven!

    love you all,

  4. We will be praying for you tomorrow, and we continue to lift you up to our Lord that He will comfort you all in your hurting. You’ve been an awesome example to so many through your faith in this trial. Sending blessings your way….Jill Steinbrunner
