“If you’re asking me if an end point is near, I’d have to say yes.”

The doctor was talking about our Maegan, soon to be seven, who was dying of AIDS. My head spun, and I shook as I pointed to the article I’d brought about a new drug for AIDS patients. “Why can’t we get this for Maegan?” He sat with his back to her, though she was sleeping, so if she awoke she wouldn’t be able to read his lips.

This was one time when I was grateful for her deafness. 

Connect with God. Find Your Purpose.
