As I sit here watching you sleep I notice how you tuck your hand under
your chin, your soft brown arm folded gently
over the white blankets
and I’m struck by your beauty again,
your sculpted face,
the cheeks I’ve kissed
so many times
and I wonder
how the heavens ever survived
after you were sent to me.
She’s coming home today!! Wahoo!
She is still recovering, with strong medication but she can recover at home.
And we are waiting for the results of a biopsy, which to be honest is scary because of the fear of cancer.
We are so grateful for all of you! Thank you so much for your thoughts, prayers, encouragement, and well wishes! Your love and support have been amazing.
Thanks again, and peace to you!

Thank you Connie so much! Peace and wonderful blessings to you and your family.
Hello Mr. Nico,
I haven’t been “commenting” but you, your wife and your family have been in our prayers. Keeping faith that God will continue to provide and care for your family!!
Takami your prayers and encouragement are great blessings to us! Thank you! Peace and wonderful blessings to you.
Praise God that she got to come home. Again I ask the Lord for her healing of whatever this is and to restore her health and wholeness. Nico, Scripture tells us that God SPOKE the worlds into being and that we are made in His image. Therefore our words, like His, are powerful. So regardless of the results of the biopsy, reemeber He is in control and He still performs miracles!!! Sp speak only words of healing and hopefulness and praise and gratitiude, both of you. It is not easy but trusting the Lord is a form of obedience to Him which he asks us to do and over and over and over again in Scripture we are asked not to worry or fear for He holds us in the palm of His righteous right hand. I read those passages whenever I begin to have doubts and fears and soon His peace comes to calm me and just give it all to Him. Please let me know if there is anything else besides praying I can do to help you and your beloved wife. Love and hugs, N 🙂 ❤ xoxoxoxoxcoxoxcoxo
Natalie your kind words are a wonderful blessing! Thank my friend. Your faith is very strong, in fact much stronger than mine. We have been through alot, including when she had cancer years ago so it is a battle not to give into fear. We are trusting God and moving forward. Thank you for your prayers and encouragement! Peace to you my friend and great blessings.
Nico you said that your wife had cancer years ago and she beat it. That was a miracle and by the grace of God. I know you have children and I’m assuming they were born healthy and that they and your wife survived it, more miracles! The two of you have endured in your marriage, another miracle and on and on they go! You are surrounded by and have been blessed by grace and by miracles over and over again. So strengthen your faith! Grow strong in it for not everyone is not as blessed as you are, not everyone has been granted as many miracles as you’ve been given. Praise God continuously and pray continuously! And such things will feed your faith and make it stronger! Jesus died for you! Let Him feel your gratitude! And when you begin to feel His presence and you will feel it, your strength will become stronger than you ever imagined it could! Daily you two should you take the time to record at least 5 blessings and/or miracles that occurred that day! And then keep them handy when the valley you’re walking in seems dark and hopeless! And above all else praise the Lord and be grateful for them! You can do this!!! Much love and huge hugs and blessings galore, N❣️😘xoxoxo xoxoxo

Thank you Amy! She’s home now, but waiting is the tough part. I’m not sure if you know but she had cancer before, a blood cancer years ago, and health issues along the way.
