Speechless... (almost)

What is there to say on a mommy blog when a loved one is facing a drastic life change?

My gentle, caring, lovely sister-in-law is facing quite a test in her life right now. She is blessed with an amazing family who will go the extra mile (or 500 miles) for her. A husband who is caring and hard-working. And some lifelong friends who will help hold her up when she feels like it's too hard to go on.

It is said that when God closes a door, he opens a window.

It's hard to see that open window right now, but I know we'll find it.


And by the way, nothing brings so many smiles in times of stress than a 2-year-old (adorable) girl yelling "smooches!" in the hospital.

Maybe she should visit there more often. It's inspiring to see a little extra light flicker in the eyes of families who are worrying about the ones they love.

If only we could bottle the joy of a child. We'd make millions.

Oh Julie ... your post and picture brought tears to my eyes. Please know that I'm thinking about your/Steve's family. You are right ... Ann and her family WILL find that window... it just takes time. Sending prayers and thoughts your way. Love you girl!

I hope everything is OK.
If you find a way of bottling the joy of a child, you can send some my way :)

I'll keep your family and your sister-in-law in my prayers. It must be very serious if they are letting your baby visit.

Babies are a blessing and it's great that yours can give the people in the hospital such joy.
Enjoy every moment (I try to remember that when I'm dealing with preteen drama). My daughter is 13 in November.
