Mother's Day

I had several pictures from Mother's Day to share with you, but for some reason they are uploading upside down and I can't figure out how to fix them. So here's what you get:

 The breakfast my husband brought to me in bed. It made me and little Baby Booger very happy.

The man who made me a mother. In his firefighting gear. Enough said.

I also went to lunch with my mom and my sisters, but my camera-shy mother is probably grateful those pictures aren't posted.

Possibly my favorite part of the weekend was watching my kids try Pop Rocks for the first time.

I tried to fill the weekend with as many hugs and "I love yous" as possible, because since my brother's accident, I've learned that those are the things that matter.

Happy late Mother's Day!

Praying for a Miracle

In the last week, I have been astounded by the power of prayer.
Not just my prayers, but the combined prayers of hundreds of people, some I don't even know, all focusing their faith on my little brother.
Last week, he was severely burned when a gas tank he was working on exploded.
On Sunday, family and friends all over fasted and prayed for his healing and recovery. It made me cry just to think of how much faith and love was being sent his way.
No, he didn't get up and walk out of the burn unit the next day. But little miracles are occurring all over. His condition continues to be better than the doctors expect. He assisted in physical therapy instead of resisting. He is strong, holding up through seven hours of surgery.
Prayer is real. It is powerful. It works miracles.

So please pray for my brother and his beautiful little family. You can never have too many prayers.

Full of Gratitude,
The Brown-Eyed Girl
