I realized today that I really do have an old soul. I was crocheting….my mom doesn’t even know how to crochet :/
"My little sister came down with Meningitis a few years ago. The doctors were doing everything they could, but they told us that she had a small chance of surviving and an even smaller chance of surviving with with no damage done. I prayed to God to just let His will be done. I didn’t want my sister in pain and just as much as I wanted her with me. I knew in the end God would know how to handle it. And miraculously, God saved her. She survived and recovered with no damage done at all. I thank God everyday for her life."
This hits home…I wish I could say it didn’t do any damage to my nephew…but sadly he started having strokes and has 95% brain damage, cerebral palsy, and epilepsy…but God blessed us in other ways…because not only has he proved all the doctors wrong because he was going to be a “vegetable”; he walks and talks and is in pre-k this year…but God also gave us a miracle that we can look at and give his testimony to let people see that God does answer prayers.
What I wouldn’t give to see my uncle sober. He went 2 years without abusing alcohol and staying clean from meth…now he is back in jail and his kids want nothing to do with him, it amazes me what addiction can do to families.
