Christmas Miracle

I have been dying to tell you guys about this.  My angel on Earth, also known as CPA Mom, wrote to 5 Minutes for Mom and told them...you know, I'm not sure what she told them but it must have been about how wonderful I am, kidding, kidding.  She told them about what was going on around here the last few months.  5 Minutes for Mom and Sears totally rocked our Christmas!

I cannot even begin to tell you what this did for us.  Not only did my children get wonderful gifts (my husband & I also) but it did something even more.  My husband's diagnosis has really thrown me for a loop.  I may come across as strong and capable but this whole situation has left me weak and doubting.  After getting the email from Erica at 5M4M and finding out CPA Mom set all of this in motion, it was as if God was saying to me, "Don't worry so much.  I will take care of you.  See.  I love you."  Aw nuts, now I'm crying again.  If God could take care of something as simple as Christmas, He will take care of my husband and the rest of my family.  Does that mean He will let my husband live?  Who knows?  Probably not.  But...He will take care of us no matter what happens.

Maybe that seems strange to you, that some Christmas gifts say so much to me...but they did, still do.

I will never be able to tell CPA Mom, the staff at 5 Minutes for Mom or Sears how grateful I am for all of this.  It means more than I can say.  I pray that each of you has a very happy New Year.

This is honestly the best post I have ever read. Wow to the power of the blogging community. Wow to Sears for providing that gift card. And a great big wow to CPA Mom, who has got to be one of the most amazing people I have ever come across...you are correct, a real angel on Earth. My respect for her is immense.

I'm so glad CPA mom put this in motion and that the 5M4M helped you out.
Bethany, I am so glad this helped you and your family. I've been praying for you and it was so wonderful to hear some good news.

It's always a nice change to cry because I'm happy. And I was extra happy that it was for you.
