Kelee at the Katillac Shack to celebrate Collette's recovery from cancer and to thank Guidepost for her room makeover.
Today I am burning a single candle and saying a prayer for each and every one of you and your loved ones who are experiencing difficult times. I'm praying for your miracle.
A single rose to remind us of the beauty and joy in the world.
And for those who bring happiness to others through acts of
A Pink Saturday to reflect joy, hope and love.
About my miracle....
My miracle is now 34 years old. My son. He was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 20. He was facing a year of chemotherapy.
It was really hard. It changed our lives completely and everyday brought new challenges.
During his first visit to the cancer center the doctor needed to do a bone marrow test. A slither of bone is removed from the spine.
This is done without an anesthetic.
I could hear my son whimpering. He was trying so hard not to cry from the pain.
The tears started to run down my face and his Dads.
A young male nurse came over and got down on his knees in
front of us and handed me a tissue. He comforted us and told us that our son would be alright. He spoke softly and had such a sweet gentle way of speaking.
As he spoke I started to feel as though everything was going to be alright. It was though peace had come over me.
My husband and I sat
there quietly holding hands and praying for our only child.
A week later we returned to the cancer center for my son's first round of chemo. I asked about the nice male nurse who had been
so kind to us.
The female nurse on duty commented that the male nurse
had only worked that one day and she didn't know
if he was just filling-in for someone else or not. She said she didn't know him and he had never worked there before that day.
My husband and I just looked at each other.
We both knew that we had been visited by an angel.
I know this sounds crazy but I still believe to this day that he was indeed an angel who came to comfort us in our time of need.
Today my son is in remission from cancer.
He still suffers from crohns and other illnesses but his life is much improved. We are working through this too. We are thankful for every single day and we always face each day with faith and determination to fight each battle. We are sure that another miracle will come along soon.
Thanks for letting me share my miracle.
