Hardships bring thankful heart
A look back at the past couple years makes my head spin. It is amazing what people can go through, and I say that with great pride, because we are making it through! We have come a long ways in the last couple of years. We were going through quite a lot all at one time. My oldest daughter had been diagnosed with Crohn's disease and my son a heart condition that caused his heart to race out of his chest and he endured one unsuccessful heart surgery. As a mother I felt helpless because all you want is for your children to be happy and healthy. You dig deep into yourself to find the strength you need to have, because you need to have it for them. But it is in those little private alone moments that I would melt and cry out to God, saying I can't take anymore! As I look back now a year and many, many prayers later I am THANKFUL so Thankful to say that my daughter is in REMISSION & my son's second heart surgery was a total SUCCESS!! They are both doing great and nothing makes me happier!!! Other things in life seem to be falling in place too. My husbands new job has helped with less stress on both of us and less travel allows him to be here much more than he has in the past 6 years. Can't say how much that helps with so many different areas of our life.
