: Subject: MCL: WATCH OUT THIS WILL MAKE YOUR EYES LEAK

: Marine Corps League e-mail Discussion Group
: ----------------------------------------------

: Get your kleenex out this hits the heart! A close friend sent this to
: me and I just had to send it out.

: Subject: You Are My Sunshine

: Like any good mother, when Karen
: found out that another baby was
: on the way, she did what she could to
: help her 3-year-old son, Michael,
: prepare for a new sibling. They found out
: that the new baby was going to
: be a girl, and day after day, night after
: night, Michael sang to his sister
: in Mommy's tummy. He was building a bond of
: love with his little sister before
: he even met her.

: The pregnancy progressed
: normally for Karen, an active
: member of the Panther Creek United
: Methodist Church in Morristown,TN. In
: time, the labor pains came.

: Soon it was every
: five minutes, every three, every
: minute.

: But serious complications arose
: during delivery and Karen found
: herself in hours of labor.

:
: Would a C-section be required?
: Finally, after a long struggle,
: Michael's little sister was
: born.

: But she was in very serious
: condition. With a siren howling in the
: night, the ambulance rushed the infant to
: the neonatal intensive care unit
: at St. Mary's Hospital, Knoxville,
: Tennessee. The days inched by. The
: little girl got worse. The pediatrician
: had to tell the parents,
: "There is very
: little hope. Be prepared for
: the worst."

:
: Karen and her husband contacted a
: local cemetery about a burial
: plot.

:
: They had fixed up a special room
: in their house for their new
: baby but now
: they found themselves having to
: plan for a funeral. Michael,
: however,
: kept begging his parents to let him
: see his sister. "I want to sing
: to her,"
: he kept saying. Week two in
: intensive care looked as if a
: funeral would
: come before the week was over.
: Michael kept nagging about singing
: to his sister, but kids are never allowed
: in Intensive Care.

: Karen made up
: her mind, though. She would take Michael
: whether they liked it or not! If
: he didn't see his sister right then,
: he may never see her alive. She
: dressed him
: in an oversized scrub suit and
: marched him into ICU. He looked
: like a walking laundry basket. But the head
: nurse recognized him as a child and
: bellowed, "Get that kid out of
: here now! No children are
: allowed."
: The mother rose up strong in Karen, and the usually
: mild-mannered lady glared
: steel-eyed
: right into the head nurse's face,
: her lips a firm line. "He is not
: leaving until he sings to his sister!"

: Karen towed Michael to his sister's
: bedside. He gazed at the tiny infant losing
: the battle to live. After a
: moment, he
: Began to sing. In the pure-hearted
: voice of a 3-year-old, Michael
: sang:

: "You are my sunshine, my only sunshine,
: you make me happy when skies
: are gray ---"

: Instantly the baby girl seemed to
: respond. The pulse rate began
: to calm down and become steady. "Keep on
: singing, Michael," encouraged
: Karen with tears in her eyes. "You never
: know, dear, how much I love you,
: Please don't take my sunshine away-" As
: Michael sang to his sister, the
: baby's ragged, strained breathing became as
: smooth as a kitten's purr.
: "Keep on singing, Sweetheart!!!" "The other
: night, dear, as I lay sleeping, I
: dreamed I held you in my arms..." Michael's
: little sister began to relax as
: rest, healing rest, seemed to sweep over
: her. "Keep on singing, Michael."

: Tears had now conquered the face
: of the bossy head nurse. Karen
: glowed.
: "You are my sunshine, my only
: Sunshine. Please don't, take my
: sunshine away..."

: The next, day...the very next
: day...the little girl was well
: enough to go home!

: Woman's Day Magazine
: called it "The Miracle of a
: Brother's Song."

: The medical staff just called it
: a miracle. Karen called it a
: miracle God's love!

: NEVER GIVE UP ON THE
: PEOPLE YOU LOVE. LOVE IS SO
: INCREDIBLY POWERFUL.

: Please send this to all the
: people that have touched your life
: inm some way.

: Life is good. Have a Wonderful Day!

: When you receive this e-mail
: just recite the following prayer.
: That's all you have to do.

: There is nothing attached. This is the power
: of prayer at work. Just send
: this to (4) people and see what happens on the
: fourth day.

: Do not break this, please. There
: is no cost, but lots of
: rewards.

: Let's continue to pray for one
: another. PRAYER: May today there be peace
: within you. May you trust God
: that you are exactly where you are meant
: to be. May you not forget the
: infinite possibilities that are born of
: faith. May you use those gifts
: that you have received, and pass on the
: love that has been given to you.

: May you be content knowing that you are a
: child of God. Let His presence settle
: into your bones, and allow your soul
: the freedom to sing, dance,
: and to bask in the sun. It is there for each and
: every one of you.

: Send this to (4) or more people
: and witness the awesome power of
: prayer.

: "I can do all things though
: Christ who strengthens me."
