Family support

How could I be so lucky to have such wonderful family support?! My family has given of themselves in so many ways, helping me with physical and personal needs. They do little things that they don’t think are much at all, but they are everything to me.

When I was so sick 25 years ago, my husband knew how much I needed to hold my girls. He picked each one up and put them in my hospital bed with me, despite all the tubes, wires and IVs. My recovery began!

Twenty plus years later, again very ill and in the hospital, they worked their magic yet once more. The girls curled up in bed with me and just held me. What better gift could a mother receive!
