Grateful


Today, as I sit by Violet's hospital bed and hear the hum of machines, the beeping of alarms, the quiet conversations between nurses, I feel so very grateful...

Grateful for the wonderful medical care that we have been blessed with. I often wonder what would have happened to Violet 100 years ago when they didn't have the technology that we have today.

Grateful that Violet's condition isn't long-term or severe, like so many of the other babies that I'm seeing in the intensive care unit. Even though the past week has been rough, there are many other people going through much, much worse situations.

Grateful for my family who are taking such good care of my other babies at home.



Grateful for friends and family who are taking the time to visit us. It's so nice to see familiar faces in the midst of doctors, nurses, and lots and lots of sick people.

Grateful for the Ronald McDonald House where we can get a good night's sleep. The people who volunteer there are so sweet and helpful. And I don't think I've ever slept as good as I did last night! And that's not an exaggeration! It was heavenly!

Grateful that God has been faithful to give us grace and strength to get through each day. I feel His presence, and He has filled me with peace like only He can do.

Grateful for YOU for reading my little blog and for the many caring comments I've received from the readers. You have been such an encouragement to me over the past few days!
Thank you!

  2. aimee, you are a women of great grace.
    no doubt your circumstances are tiring, difficult and hard, but it is amazing to hear your voice of gratefulness even in the midst of the storm. that is so important. i have always tried, in the midst of great adversity, to keep a thankful & cheerful heart (i have not always won that battle), but it will bear great fruit in your life if you can remain thankful for all you have been given, because there is much, despite your current circumstance., to be thankful for!!
    be blessed friend.
    violet, get well!

  3. I know what you are going through. My baby girl was born with meningitis and then she got RSV while in the hospital. Hang in there and remember Jesus loves you.

  5. Thanks for the update! I have been praying! I can't tell you what a sigh of relief I breathed when I read that at this point you don't feel that Violet's condition is "long-term or severe" at least relatively speaking. I assume that means the docs are optimistic with how she is doing. Praise God! Your areas of gratefulness have touched on so many of my specific prayers for your family - God is faithful and is providing for you, and I'm so glad that He has given you peace and a grateful heart that is focused on Him. Stay strong and give that sweet baby a kiss. "Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you." 2 Thessalonians 3:16
