Miracle Monday


My sister is a type 1 diabetic, and she has been for 46 years. Due to her disease, she has had to deal with several complications. When she first got married, and was trying to become pregnant, it was such a struggle for her. The doctors all told her it would probably never happen. She refused to quit trying. She suffered a miscarriage, and then a stillborn death. Her heart was hurting and very heavy. But, she refused to give up. In October of 1979, she gave birth to my precious nephew Kevin. It was not an easy delivery, and he was born a blue baby. The cord was wrapped around his neck, they immediately moved him to neo-natal intensive care. God heard all of our prayers, and saw the love we all had for that dear baby boy. He granted our hearts wish, and allowed us to keep our miracle baby. Today, that miracle baby, is now a miracle man. He will be celebrating his 29th birthday on October 26th. We love our miracle, and praise God for him always.

Denise, you always have such loving blog posts! This is super once again.

And to comment on your comment you left me today...I so agree with you! In fact, I'd go even further and say ban ALL cellphone use in ALL cities and countryside too. Use only when there is a emergency and then....on the side of the road if possible!!!
