Tomorrow, May 7th is the third anniversary of our daughter Jamie's birth/death. I have been struggling with this up coming anniversary for weeks. I have been very sad and emotional. Mother's day being so close doesn't help either because three years ago I was in the hospital still w/out a new baby to hold.
I have been praying, "help me Lord." Not knowing what to actually pray for all I could say was help.
Today my prayer was answered! A new friend from BSF whom I am just getting to know also has an anniversary tomorrow. May 7th is her 5th anniversary of being cancer free. The immediate relief of sadness I felt as she spoke this today was amazing. Only God can do that! Now May 7th is not just a day of sadness for me, but a day of happiness, thanksgiving and hope. God is our great healer and He healed Jamie completely by taking her to Himself and He healed my new friend of cancer! What a great God we have!
