Good Day and Plans Ahead

Okay, today seemed like a really good day. I'm not in my Mom's body, so I'm not sure how she feels. She looks great, but when I asked how she felt, she said she seemed like she wasn't there. She can't really think about things, but she wasn't in pain. She kind of just looks sad if you look at her. But she did have a good day today. I am so glad! We had my sister Tara out today with my Grandma. Also in the afternoon Cheryl and Mrs. Tate came by. It was really nice to visit with them. Then, around dinner time Jake showed up. I guess my email worked last night. My mom was sort of getting depressed not being able to see all of our friends. So today she got to see some friends and tomorrow we are having some more people over. I am praying that my Mom has a good day. It is so hard to see her when she doesn't feel good.

We made reservations today to go back to Mexico next week. We want my Mom to be as healthy as possilbe. Mexico is a great place. The hospital down there is very effective and I am looking forward to having my Mom go again. I am still praying the Lord will work a miracle in my Mom's life. We need this, she would be such a great testimony to everyone around her. Not that she isn't already, she definately is. My mom is one of the strongest people I know. She loves God so much, and even when she is sick, she tries to serve him and please him. That's amazing! :)

Today was a good day for me too! I had my permit when I turned 15 and then I renued it when I turned 16, but when I turned 17 I let it expire. So for a year I haven't been able to drive. So, today I re-took the test and I got my permit again. Then when we get back from Mexico, I will try to get my license...Hopefully!

Also, about the documentary coming out with our family in it... It will be possible for others to see it. So, Celeste, I can get you a copy when it comes out. It will probably be a year though. I know that's a long time. . Well, not really.

I better go. I'll try to write more tomorrow!
Love, Danielle

praying for you! i have a close friend who just went through a very similar situation...
Remember, God's surrounding you, before and behind, above and below. There's nothing that comes your way unless it comes through His hands and is perfect for you good!
