A mom & her daughter

"[A] mother is one to whom you hurry when you are troubled." ~Emily Dickinson


My dad always said, "It doesn't matter how old you get. If you're 40 years old, you are still my little girl."
I'm seeing this in action as we feel our way through this family tragedy. You can see the care and concern in every inch of my mother-in-law's face. Her little girl is hurting. Her little girl is scared. She is feeling these emotions as well, but those are put aside. Only her daughter matters.
I hope none of us have to endure the pain of our children. But it's inspiring to see just how strong a mama can be when put to the test.

My sister-in-law was involved in an accident on July 8th, 2010. She is lucky to have survived the accident, and came out of it with the use of her arms, no brain damage, and breathing on her own. Those were miracles out of her tragedy.
