The year 2007 was...well a year of emotional lows to say the least. Let me summarize: Lainey was diagnosed with type 1 in February; I learned in April that the baby I was carrying had severe health problems and may not survive; in May and June I was back and forth to Utah for doctors appointments, hearing the worst case scenarios; in July Libby was born with brain and heart problems, but was alive; from August to November we practically lived at Primary Children's, watching my baby go through and recovering from 4 surgeries in order to say alive. Anyway...you get the picture. I had many dark hours during that year.
Sometime during that year, my mom gave me a magnet that had the words of a church hymn on it. Those words brought me so much comfort, I can't even explain it. Let me share some of the words of that hymn:
Fear not, I am with thee;
oh, be not dismayed,
For I am thy God
and will still give thee aid.
I'll strengthen thee,
and cause thee to stand...
Today we sang that hymn in church.
And after two years, I still can't sing that hymn without crying.
