I have come to realize today that Brylee is a blessing to this world and a miracle to more people's lives than I will ever know! I knew she was an amazingly special girl the first time I held her in my arms. I knew she would accomplish great things on this world. I never knew the extent of that though until today. She has brought together this amazing community. She has brought people back to the Lord our god in frantic pray for a miracle to save her life. Even if the miracle is not her staying with us she is still a miracle in our lives. The miracle might be that I was the blessed one to be this sweet little angel's mother. She has taught me so much in her short life. The prophet Joseph Smith said, “The Lord takes many away, even in infancy, that
they may escape the envy of man, and the sorrows and evils of this
present world; they were too pure, too lovely, to live on earth;
therefore, if rightly considered, instead of mourning we have reason to
rejoice as they are delivered from evil, and we shall soon have them
again.” I truly believe this with my whole heart. If my sweet Brylee leaves this earth before we think her time should be it is because she is too pure of a spirit to have to go through the trials that I, and everyone else on this earth, have to go through. I'm almost jealous that I have to endure the hard ships. I also know that I will still get a chance to raise her in the here after. My heart is full.
Brylee Olson was diagnosed with a DIPG, an inoperable brain tumor (infiltrating brain stem glioma) on Wednesday, March 6, 2013. This is a blog for her and her fight to be in the 5% who survive 3-4 years. Or the rare chance of complete survival.
