Malia and I grew up in the same town. She was that girl who glowed, literally. Her outer beauty is breathtaking, but nothing compared to her inner spirit. She is special and you don’t even have to know her to figure that out. We’ve grown up and now she’s the mommy of 4 awesome kids. She’s got a fun blog to follow and there is nothing boring about her Maui country life. A few days ago her spirited 9 year old daughter, Lanea, fell off a roof. She fractured her skull and was in ICU for 2 days. She’s been released and what a blessing. Unfortunately, she’s been left with paralysis on the right side of her face and loss of hearing on that same side. There are also major concerns of blindness in her right eye. Malia is on Oahu with her today seeing specialists and I can’t get her off my heart. So here I am writing and asking you to pray for her if you may. All positive and healing energies are welcome towards this little girl. She’s a dolly!
This situation reminds me of one of my all time favorite quotes:
Sooooo, I’m up to something crafty for this little munchkin. I know nothing can completely take away pain from tradegies, but maybe I can make something that can help her smile every time she sees it. I’m excited to start this quilt….
Lanea, we are hoping for the best and sending you lots of love!
