On this day in 2001.

My Mama and a wee niece Julia. July 4, 2007.

I'm not sure if I've ever talked about it before, but my mom has a brain tumor. She discovered it in the Spring of 2001, and after months of anxious waiting, on August 15, 2001, she had most of it removed. 

My brave Mama underwent brain surgery that lasted around 17 hours. It was unknown if she'd survive, and if so, the difficulties she would face physically. My mom, being the amazing lady she is, came through like a champ, with few side effects. 

12 happy, healthy years later we continue to be grateful for her good health and that she beat those stinkin' odds. 

We love you to the moon and back, Mom--or as the grand kids say--Grandma Peg!

God is Good.

Yes, my soul, find rest in God; 
my hope comes from him.
Psalm 62:5
Pin It Now!
