What started out as a site to update on our daughter's cancer has thankfully grown into a site to update on our beautiful family of four. Enjoy our journey...

Do any of you look back on things you have said or done and think "how did I know that THEN!? I am sure that we all do and say things that can be looked back upon like this, but we don't realize it. Today, I was hit with something that brought me to tears.

I was putting Charli's new bracelet in her "jewelery box" and found a silver bracelet I bought for myself the week that Charli was born. (I remember buying it the night I got a pedicure, one week before I had Charli!!) Anyway, it said..."Expect Miracles". I found this, read it, and had to sit down. How did I know a year ago that this phrase would mean so much to me now?

It is something like this that reminds me that God works in mysterious ways. After Charli was born I put the bracelet away, and was going to save it for her - never to look at it again until she was older...or so I thought! Here I sit today - proudly wearing this bracelet again to remind myself to no only believe but EXPECT miracles!

This is something I wanted to share with all of you can EXPECT MIRACLES too.

Miracles do happen!!! Never doubt that!!! I have had several amazing miracles happen in my life. Of course, I consider my children miracles, but there have been other miracles besides the children! NEVER STOP BELIEVING!!!

Wow that is neat that you found that and it fits what you are going through now. Charli is a miracle so you did get one miracle. I know that there will be other miracles in Charli's life. Well thanks for sharing that with everybody.
