Not Me Monday - Stellan



Prayers for Stellan
Welcome to my first not me Monday. I don't quite know what to title this post, so I will go with what I have seen around the blogosphere today. If you are not familar with Not Me Monday or with Stellan's story please visit MckMama at My charming Kids

Today I so did not finally read Stellan's story.

Then I did not sit at my desk at work with tears running down my face. The next thing I did not do was bow my head in silent prayer for this beautiful little boy and the very strong family that stands behind him.
The next thing I did not do was bow my head in silent prayer and thanks that my own beautiful children are healthy and happy.

I also did not sit at my desk and log on to twitter, and then hit refresh until I knew how Stellan had fared today.

I also did not sit and think about how I can tell my children about Stellan's fight and how we could find a way to pray for him and spell his name out for a picture. The next thing I did not do (still at my work desk mind you) was look at every single picture in Stellan's Name Gallery

I still have so not been thinking about this beautiful little boy and his family and praying for them all day. Please join me with your own prayer.

If one is looking for a silver lining then it would be the hundred or even thousands of parents who are now doing the same thing - thanking God for their blessings.

Sweet post - thank you.

OH...this is the most beautiful Not Me Monday I have ever read. We are all praying for baby Stellan, and we say an extra prayer that our children are healthy.
