Balloons

I have this vision...

It is four and a half years from now in my backyard in Allen, Texas.

You are there, and I am there too. It is three years past the median survival time for someone with my diagnosis- and I am alive.

We are in my backyard celebrating David's first five years of life. You and I go and untie one of the many balloons on my iron fence. You read my handwriting on the piece of paper tied to your balloon. Yours says- "Doctors telling me I had 'No Evidence of Disease'". Mine says- "David born healthy with no time in the NICU".

We look around and the backyard is filled with friends and family- hundreds of people, everyone who has walked with us on this journey, all waiting their turn to untie a balloon and read the miracle attached to it. Brad attempts to get everyone's attention once all the balloons have found owners. He has to use a megaphone to be heard above the commotion.  

Brad shares a simple prayer, "God, we praise you for five years of watching you perform miracle after miracle. We praise you that you have spared Ashleigh's life."

And with that, you let go of your balloon, and we watch as hundreds of balloons fill the sky.

"With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." -Matt 19:26

  3. You and Brad, Noah & David are a blessing to me. I'll blow up all those balloons... On second thought, I'll be a lot older.... Better rent a tank.

  4. My name is mika (I am from venezuela) , I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer a year ago.. I am fine now.. I do not know you, I do not know your family, I do not believe in God. .. But there is not one day that I do not think about you, with the heart in my hands I wish I could give you a thousand years with your family, but I can't.. I just want you to know that there is somebody out there who cares about you!!
