I recently received the following email from a blogger friend, Michelle, in FL. She is asking for prayers for her 10-year old daughter. I know we all can pull together on this one! This little girl needs all the prayers she can get right now. We are all mothers and can read this mother's pain between the lines even. Please read on.....and pray for this beautiful little girl!

Nancy, I need your help.

We had a bit of a rough Christmas. Taylor had an accident. She was playing at a friend's house and was shot in the eye with a BB. She has been on complete bed rest since Tuesday. She isn't allowed to read, play video games, run around.....nothing.

We go back to the ophthalmologist on Monday. Her eye has been completely dilated. We are hoping for the best, but nothing is sure right now. She does have the best doctors, and best case scenario, she will keep her sight after surgery, worst is she will lose it. We are hoping that we have done everything right. If she ran around, or didn't follow direction, her eye socket will rebleed and that is really bad. We are also looking at the possibility that she may have a cataract caused by the trauma. That can be fixed with Laser surgery. She 's been so good about it all. I think the Doctor really got through to her how important it was for her to follow his orders.

She's just been my little Tiny Tim. She's bored out of her mind, but she has been a real trooper.

I need as many prayers as you can muster........EVERYONE YOU KNOW!

Monday is the deciding factor. We need all the prayers, everyone!

BB Guns! Among other things they do damage like this. And if not human beings then it is pain, misery and death to animals, especially birds people shoot with BB guns. I think they should be outlawed.

While I cant agree totally with Abrahams sentiments there, (since we both carry and Dear Husband teaches pistol safety as well,) I surely will be saying a prayer for Miss Taylor, and her Momma too. I think a prayer is in order for the person who popped her in the eye as well. AND a prayer that they have learned that firearms- even "just a BB gun" ARE dangerous, and need to be handled with caution and skill, and with SAFETY in mind first.

Happy New Year Miss Nancy! I hope that 2009 treats you well, and brings you much joy, love, and prosperity!

I'll pray for her, bless her heart.

I wonder if she's heard anything yet? I just clicked over to her Mom's blog and she hasn't posted an update as of now.

Hope you have a happy, prosperous and blessed New Year, dear Nancy. :o)

Love and hugs,

Nancy, and Diane.....I just posted an update.

Thank you so much for all your prayers.

I want you all to know, that Nancy has not felt well. Yet, she put her own anxieties away to post this for my daughter.

Please keep Nancy in your prayers as well. I know she is in every one of mine.

Thank you Nancy, you are very special to me.

Nancy, what a sad story. I hope you both get well and soon. I hope Michelle's little daughter's eye heals and she will be alright.

Nancy, take care of yourself, and I hope you have a speedy recovery from your illness.

Oh of course I will pray for you both! Nancy you silly! You are working too hard still aren't you?? I wish you could take a vacation or be able to relax if only for a bit. God blees both of you girls.
