It can always be worse...

and don't you forget it.

My mom was taken to the hospital yesterday by ambulance. She was having chest pain... A heart attack took my grandfather at a young age, and my uncle as well. Without modern medicine, I would have lost my mom today too. Within one hour of feeling symptoms she was at the hospital in surgery. They were able to clear the blockage and she is at the hospital today recovering. I thank heaven for this miracle.

We've had alot of things going "wrong" in our lives recently. Its really hard to stay positive through all of it. We are doing our best, but I admit I've had to supress the thought that "it really couldn't get any worse" more than once. I'm officially renouncing that thought forever more. I've been proven wrong a thousand times over these past few months. It could always be worse, and I'm grateful for all the things going right. I still have my Mom. Today there is no greater blessing than that.
