Giving Praise and Thanks

My mom was taken off the ventilator yesterday and remains stable. I truly believe it is a miracle she survived. When I was calling my friend last night on my way home giving her the good news, she said "half the world is praying for her." Between family and friends, asking their family and friends, and so on and so on, so many people have had my mom in their prayers. The outpouring of love and support and prayer for this woman brings me to tears and sometime down the road when we are past this, my mom will know how much love and prayer were given. It's been an incredibly emotional journey but I am so happy to just sit in a heap and cry tears of joy, and relief. She is going to recover with time and I can BREATHE.
Thank you to all who have offered prayer and support. I appreciate all the blog comments and every ounce and word of support has really been so kind and taken to heart.
When things like this happen, you get the opportunity to reflect on so much. I know this sounds strange but this time away from Anna has actually helped me work on our relationship more and have more patience with all of my kids. Anna has had a lot of daddy time so she is slowly starting to trust him and feel comfortable with him. So while it has been so hard for me to be away from the kids and hard for the kids to be away from me, everyone is fine and we are all seeing how the time we have together is precious.
I'm off to the hospital for the day. Again thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the prayer and support. ALLELUIA!
