I have been in Philly and had the extreme pleasure of meeting my first grandson. I went to see him at the hospital and we had a very animated conversation. I am truly blessed. As I sat there and looked at him and held him , I was just overwhelmed by the blessings in my life.

I have been around miracles before. I have experienced a miracle in my own life that was life altering.

Besides being blessed also I am constantly asking why? Why has the Lord been so kind to me? I know that God hears all of our prayers. What I wrestle with is why are some immediately answered and others not so speedily. I know all the standard answers...Everything in God's due time. We can't know everything.

Sometimes things are just the luck of the draw. Other times we are deserving but many times I just wonder Why?

Holding Kyle you really can experience God's work in action. The odds have been stacked against him but despite that he presses on. I wish he was able to talk and tell us how he is feeling about all this.

I am amazed at the love shown to him and his family by so many. People who haven't met him yet wish to help in any way. People of all faiths and belief systems pulling for and praying for him or showing support in so many different ways. I know what I believe but I am glad for these many others who believe differently but still ask for the same out come.

I am not sure why some prayers for one are answered with the desired request and others just as worthy still struggle to get an acceptable answer.

I know I'm rambling and it has been awhile since I posted. I just want to say I am so blessed and so undeserving of so great a family and life. To any of you struggling for answers or just trying to make it from on moment to the next. I just wanted you to all know, that I know God lives. I know he here prayers and answers them and I will have to settle for that even when I don't know the Why.

One thing that has stood out to me about the entire thing is exactly what you said about so many people who've never even met him wanting to help. That is what has brought me to tears more than anything. I also think that someone else in the same situation might look at this and just think about all the hardships instead of recognizing all the amazing miracles that have taken place and continue to take place. It has helped me solidify my testimony of just how perfectly Heavenly Father knows each one of us and is aware of what we need and how to best help us. I'm glad we're all in this together. I'll end my epistle now. :) Love ya! Heather et al
