Our Lady Heals Again

I had been getting tired of wearing a bandage on my thumb and not being able to use it since I cut it so bad a few weeks ago. But, the doctor said it would take a long time to heal. I didn’t get a definition for exactly what “a long time” meant, so I […]

Medical Miracle

Last month, a friend’s mother was hospitalized with dizziness and high blood pressure. At that time, they thought she might have been on the verge of having a stroke and did plenty of testing. They found that she had markers for bone cancer and sent her home to follow up with assorted specialists. Since then, […]

Spot Disappeared

Tonight I had dinner with friends and was happy to see a mom who has been struggling. She had a large cancer spot removed off the top of her head, then one behind her ear. To top it off, she recently got shingles. After she told me all about it, she said she was thankful […]

Coffeemaker Miracle

About 25 years ago, my siblings and I pitched in and bought my parents a fancy coffeemaker. It has different settings for regular coffee, espresso, beans or ground, and can even make froth for a cappuccino. My dad has been vigilant about cleaning it and taking care of it, but recently it has been giving […]

Today I visited my neighbor who came home from the hospital yesterday. She was happy to sit outside on her porch, breathe the fresh air, and feel the warm breeze. She told me about the first time she had a hospital stay several years ago. At that time, the doctors wanted to do surgery. But […]

Celestial Memories

In my water aerobics class this morning, we talked about our earliest memory of celestial events. I remember when the first astronauts landed on the moon. That night, I looked up at the moon and thought, “There are people there!” It was an awesome realization. I told my parents about the conversation and my mom […]

Ordinary Miracles

My mom and I were looking for a nice movie to watch tonight and came across “Charlotte’s Web”. I loved the book as a child and read it over and over again, so we watched it. The movie was cute with the talking animals and kept close to the story I remembered when I was […]

Face to Face

My mom made it back to exercise class after 4 weeks recovering from painful sciatica and bursitis. When we arrived, there were some noticeable changes. One of the college students is pregnant and due to give birth in about 2 weeks. I think her baby doubled in size while we were away as her tiny […]

At church today there was a visiting priest from a mission called Cross Catholic Outreach.┬áHe talked about the plight of many different people in many different parts of the world and how the ministry helps them. His plea for support went right along with the Gospel of the day, which was the story of the […]
