My new favorite quote.

It takes a village to keep a special needs parent from jumping off the roof.  (Christine Moers)

I got a call this morning from someone I know whose little girl is back in the hospital, a couple of hours from home, and it reminded me of the way life is for families of medically fragile children.  We, of course, would give anything to have that life back, if it meant Mallorie was here with us, but still it is a life with some very hard times, and we were carried along by so many loved ones, medical professionals, and generous strangers. 

Maybe you know someone today who could use encouragement, and God's touch using your hands.
