God Bless The Child

October 26, 2004 at 10:11 am (Uncategorized)

I saw my cousin K. today. She updated me on Gabriel. Remember little man Gabe? 2lbs. 6oz.? He has been doing very, very good until recently. He weighs 4lbs. 2oz. now and has been breathing on his own. Now he has contracted an infection. They believe it may be meningitis and he has been placed back on the respirator. I think its just because he has fought so long and hard that his little body is just worn out. I told K. that maybe he just needs a little rest and that’s what the respirator will do for him. Just another battle for Little Man. Prayers and thoughts are appreciated.

I mentioned in Jack’s comments that he may consider submitting some of his work to the Chicken Soup for the Soul series. I saw several upcoming book titles that they are accepting writings for that reminded me of several of you. Here’s a partial list that I took from the website:

Adopted Soul
Alzheimer’s Soul
Boy’s Soul
Breast Cancer Survivor’s Soul
Cat Lover’s Soul
Celtic Soul
Cowboy’s Soul
Crafters and Quilter’s Soul
Dieter’s Soul
Divorced Soul
Dog Lover’s Soul
Girl’s Soul
Life Lessons
Rescue Worker’s Soul
Scrapbooker’s Soul
Sisters’ and Brothers’ Soul
Southern Soul
Texan’s Soul

Submit, submit, submit peeps!!!

I have signed up for NaNoWrMo … I do have an idea… I can’t figure out how to put the little icon on my blog so if anybody knows… let me know… m’kay???

Please, check out my OMA! post below…

Today’s Song of the Day is:

God Bless The Child – Billie Holiday (For Gabriel)

Them that’s got shall get
Them that’s not shall lose
So the Bible said and it still is news
Mama may have, Papa may have
But God bless the child that’s got his own
That’s got his own

Yes, the strong gets more
While the weak ones fade
Empty pockets don’t ever make the grade
Mama may have, Papa may have
But God bless the child that’s got his own
That’s got his own

Money, you’ve got lots of friends
Crowding round the door
When you’re gone, spending ends
They don’t come no more
Rich relations give
Crust of bread and such
You can help yourself
But don’t take too much

Mama may have, Papa may have
But God bless the child that’s got his own
That’s got his own

Mama may have, Papa may have
But God bless the child that’s got his own
That’s got his own
He just worry ’bout nothin’
Cause he’s got his own

    Love,
    Cooter
