World Heart Day

Some Bonds Cannot Be Understood ❤️
Some bonds cannot be understood…

Unless you have walked them before… 

A path that I would not have chosen… 

A future I just can’t ignore.
We’ve all watched our children intently… 

Memorizing each line… 

And let them leave our loving arms… 

And prayed things would be fine. 
We’ve paced the halls awaiting news… 

And wondered just what lie in store… 

We’ve felt our own heart’s racing as… 

We walked through an PICU door.
We’ve seen the child we love so much… 

Struggling to overcome… 

The lines…the cords….the monitors… 

No thoughts…no words…would come… 
We’ve prayed for an improvement… 

We’ve laid it in God’s hands.. 

We’ve cried…we’ve hoped…we’ve worried… 

We’ve wondered of God’s plans. 
We’ve learned just how a heart works… 

Each valve and artery… 

We’ve asked alot of questions… 

We’ve faced each surgery. 
And somewhere down this well worn path… 

We’ve met more families… 

Who know exactly what it means… 

To live with this disease. 
We’ve smiled at every triumph… 

And shared in every sigh… 

We’ve prayed for a child that struggles… 

And each family that must say goodbye. 
Some battles are fought with bullets… 

And weapons made for war… 

While these are fought in silence… 

Behind a hospital door.
We’ve wondered what lies in our future… 

We’ve been thankful for just one more day… 

We’ve stopped and watched with tear-filled eyes… 

Our children…as they play. 
We’ve struggled with ounces and weight gain…

Why won’t my child just eat? 

But heart parents …we’re a tough group… 

We’ve learned how to face a defeat. 
We’ve faced those moments…others do… 

When life has got us stressed… 

But it doesn’t take long to remember… 

That we are richly blessed. 
We’ve taken on a whole new role… 

One we wouldn’t exchange if we could… 

We know that life is difficult… 

We hold onto all that is good. 
God chose each of us carefully… 

I do believe he smiled… 

Some bonds begin with strangers… 

And each very special child ❤️

Author: always over thinking things

I'm 32 years old,married and I'm a full time mum to 2 boys. My eldest is 5 and the youngest is a year old. My eldest boy is on the autistic spectrum and my youngest has a congenital heart defect called tetralogy of fallot. My blog is about my children, about me and my way of dealing with the life I've been given. It's a way of expressing my emotions and feelings through words. This is done anonymously as I want to keep myself away from people who don't know what's happening in my life.
