grateful beyond words

May 16, 2019

It was a LONG day at the hospital yesterday and a very long procedure for my mom but we are rejoicing in the MIRACLES of so many things that took place yesterday. One huge answer to prayer right from the beginning was that it was not necessary for my mom's heart to be "shocked" but instead they were able to obtain the information for the mapping without this step. The procedure went so well and the surgeon, the nurses, the doctors, and each person involved in this kept commenting to us how surprised, pleased, and in awe of how well everything went. We know that is simply due to all of the prayers that each of you were praying. 

Mom did have a reaction to a medicine and a specific anesthesia that she was given so it was a difficult night and we do have a car trip (approximately 3 hours) today that we would covet continue prayers for, along with complete healing in this new season.

Thank you so much for all of your prayers, all of your support and love, and to each of you who were checking in throughout the day yesterday. This experience was very difficult for me for numerous reasons and in that space of pain and extreme difficulty I am so grateful for each of you who showed up for me and my family. This past week you special ones have faithfully loved and listened and cried with me, laughed and rejoiced, and have gently and specifically reminded me (at all different hours of the night) that the Lord is near. 

Words fail me to share how grateful I am for those of you who have moved into this time with love and compassion, not giving space, but gently reminding me and my family that we were not alone in this situation, speaking truth and courage to fears and joyfully praying despite so many things going on in your own personal lives. You are truly a gift. 

Each day holds little miracles each on their own, but today I am sitting and marveling with humble gratitude just how blessed we are with more time with my precious mom and best friend here on earth. 

"Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy. Then it was said among the nations, "The LORD has done great things for them." 

-Psalm 126:2-
