I LOVE A GOOD MIRACLE!

Yep...nothing like hearing miraculous news...my friend, Sandy, was diagnosed with brain cancer last year; had surgery; went through a tough period of chemo and radiation...all this time, she's been a believer! She believes in the power of prayer...I do to, but seems like Sandy believes it, practices it, talks about it, lives it more than anyone I know. She's been full of sweet spirit, smiling and joking about her wig and hats and always concerned about what's happening with her family and friends...more concerned about them than herself. On rare occasions, she's lightly mentioned the fact that she might not be around for another Thanksgiving or Christmas. I don't want to hear that! I'm covering my ears, choking back tears and tossing out silent prayers, but no prayers like Sandy's...I swear, if someone around me is in need or ill or dealing with seemingly hopeless situations, Sandy wants the name of those people because she's going to pray for them...and it seems like those prayers are always answered in some good way...Well, of course people have been praying for Sandy too...and each time she has another MRI, it has been good news...after a long spell without any treatments, she's been growing new hair, handling her daily living without complaint, all the while dreading this next MRI...don't know why she dreaded this one more than the others, but she did...then I started dreading it, but after seeing her several days ago, I just knew it would be good news...AND IT WAS! Came home, checked phone messages and heard her cheerful voice saying she had the test, got the report and the MRI was clear...WHOOPEE! I LOVE A GOOD MIRACLE! Thank you GOD for blessing my friend...now, can you work on our friend, Bill? I know Sandy is putting in a good word....
