“Why did it have to pick this day to rain?” Lisa Morris groaned loudly as she watched the downpour from the large bay window in their den. So much needed to be done before Alex, her eight year old son, went into the hospital for the stint that would be placed into his extremely weak little heart. With a heavy sigh, Lisa moved away from the window, heading upstairs to check on him. He was confined to his room in an effort to limit his activities.
Alex sat propped up with pillows watching Power Rangers . Alex saw his mother enter the room and smiled brightly. “Mom come sit with me. This is my favorite show!” Lisa sighed softly as she moved over to the bedside giving him a big hug and kiss. “I can’t right now love “she said, as she looked adoringly at him,before leaving the room.
Tears filled Alex’s soft brown eyes as he watched his mom leave. It seemed they never got to play like before,when his heart was not so bad. Now she was always too busy. “Ok mom , ” he murmured quietly, as a single tear trickled down his face.
Lisa stopped in the hallway turning back to gaze at him.The look on his face made her realize just what precious time they had together for it wasn’t promised that he would have tomorrow. “ I love you my little Alex,” Lisa whispered, as she snuggled against him. They sat on the bed watching another episode of Power Rangers.
For the rest of the day Lisa and Alex made up for the lost time.She had missed precious time by placing other things above what should have been the most important,being with her son.
That night Lisa bowed her head praying to God thanking him for the rain he had sent their way. It was the day she received the Blessing Shower.
