holding our breath and praying hard

Dear friends who read this blog,
I (Molly) am out of town and am not able to post the great pictures of Wavybel that I wanted to with this post. A close friend of ours gave Harper a Barbie Kawasaki ATV last weekend.  Harper was thrilled and Wave was beside herself.  We took it out in the front yard and Harper rode it first in her ski coat, a pink ballerina dress AND a pink tutu, black sparkly flats, and a huge flower head band.  Wavy went crazy on the front porch waiting her turn.  She had no fear as Matt put her on and showed her how to make it go by pressing her little foot on the gas pedal. He was laughing and chasing her across the yard as she laughed gleefully with him trying to spot her so she wouldn't fall off.  It was one of those moments that I want to remember forever -- my two girls, the princess and the adventurer having a total experience and loving every moment of it. 
I keep getting choked up thinking about it because I am so ready to just put this all behind us and just enjoy those happy moments for what they are without feeling the full weight of those moments squeezing my chest and making it hard to breathe.  Monday at midnight.  That is how much longer we have to wait.  Two days after all of this time and it could all be over.  Or it could all start right back up again.  Thank you so much for continuing to follow this journey.  The end could really be here.  I am hoping desperately that it is. Only two more days.
