On our way home from Edwardsville a beautiful rainbow appeared...
A mother whose children were diagnosed with the same disease as Madison reached out to me this week. Her children are about 1 year of treatment ahead of Madison. It was so nice to hear that she too felt this year (year after transplant) was harder than transplant year.
As I was driving home tonight, I was thinking about the week. For me the "after the storm" has always been more intense than the actual storm. Relearning, rebuilding, refocusing, and just finding myself is the hardest part.
I had the opportunity to spend the evening with an amazing group of women this week! I've been praying continually for the 19 of them. Some of them are in the same place in life as I am. The storm is passing and now need to begin rebuilding. All of the storms are different, but the feelings and emotions are the same.
God showing me the rainbow this evening is a reminder of his faithfulness! A reminder that he is constant, he is in control, and he is present.
