One year later

A year ago today my mom had a brain aneurysm, and we all wondered if she'd survive. Today she is talking, walking, writing, and chopping vegetables. She has her sense of humor and her memories. She moves a bit slower, but she's still my incredible, courageous, kind, funny, compassionate, driven, hard-working mother. She's beaten the odds.

Mom, I'm glad you're here. I'm proud of you. And I'm glad I'm your daughter.

Crazy - a year ago, Mom was diagnosed with cancer. Yesterday we got news that she's still free and clear.

Extravagant grace, eh? :)

Everytime I see your Mom she looks more and more beautiful and her grace is abounding! I thank the Lord when I'm blessed to see her!

Joy in the Lord,
