Two years ago Easter Sunday, my eldest daughter mysteriously lost all ability to walk, hold her head up – – she became like a limp rag. It took nearly 5 months to figure out – she had an aggressive form of MS. She spent nearly four months in a hospital bed. At one point, we were uncertain she would survive.
As a mother, I was desperate. One day looking at her just laying in the hospital bed unable to walk or even lift herself from a chair – I told her – “Lizzie, if you walk again – I am taking you to Paris, France.”
For the last two and half weeks – Lizzie and I fulfilled the promise of that day. Lizzie went to Paris!
Today, on Easter Sunday, I know the power of life. My sweet Lizzie was given a new beginning.
