Hospital Care Package

This post is in honor of one of my nephews who turns 7 today!  He is a smart, funny, energetic boy, and also a miracle!  He was diagnosed with infantile leukemia before he was one, and spent most of the next year in the hospital – while his parents juggled how to be there with him, and also care for his two older brothers.  They celebrated half-birthdays and didn’t take a day for granted.  What an amazing couple!.  He now lives the life of a normal school-age kid!  I want to remember this answered prayer and give thanks.  Today is a gift from God to celebrate!20140501_165633
