I found out this morning that my niece is in the hospital. We were really close at one time in our lives. She grew up next door to me. She actually introduced me to my husband. I am very scared for her and very sad. She is a vibrant woman with three beautiful little girls. She is only 30. I pray she will be well soon and on her way to 100% recovery. I just saw her last weekend when they visited from San Antonio. For anyone who prays, please keep her on your list.
An update: She is home and doing well. The problem was corrected with surgery. I saw her last weekend when I went to San Antonio and she is in good spirits. One question I ask myself, though is: why does it take something tragic to realize how valuable the little things are?
