Miracle workers

On Monday night I watched a new show called Miracle Workers. I was in tears within minutes. The one little boy had several ribs on his left side that had fused together. He had such a hard time doing everyday things but had such a sweet attitude about life.

The other young girl had tourette syndrome. She struggled just to speak. It was so hard to watch as her and her family sat in a restaurant just trying to enjoy a meal together. People were staring, laughing and making comments.

In the end the doctors were able to help both of them. It was so touching to see the little boy running and playing. He stood so tall and staight after his procedure. Then watching as the young girl was able to talk without once jerking or hitting herself made me burst into tears. It was amazing!!

It made me stop and think about what was really important in my own life. I'm so thankful that God has given me two wonderful healthy kids!! I want to be more content and really enjoy the things God has blessed me with.

Here! Here!

I wanted to watch that show, but I guess I missed it. I'll have to catch it next time.

Amen, sister! I totally hear you about being thankful with what God has given me, and for my healthy son ... I wanted to watch that show, but missed it. I would have been balling my eyes out, any way.

You cried???? That's a minor miracle in itself :-) Sorry I missed the show.

yeah, yeah... I know I've been a little distant lately but I think maybe I'm coming back around. You know you've missed me : )
