Be the Answer to Someone’s Prayer

To say that this week has been difficult is an understatement. But there are those who continue to think about us and pray for us. They don’t even know that they are being the answer to our prayers.

Like on Tuesday, when I had been thinking about how much I needed Laney to be here to show me her optimism that things will be ok.  Only to come home and find a message from her friend telling me what Laney would have said. Amazing.

Or on Monday, when Captain America and his mom showed up to bring us pizza for dinner. And last night, they brought over goodies, a Hilary Weeks CD, and a beautiful card. How did they know that we needed them? They always seem to know the right thing to say or do. Our family loves them more than we can ever express.

Or the day my niece came across the talk by Joseph B. Wirthlin, “Sunday Will Come,” and knew immediately I needed it. She knew I needed the hope that even after all of the hard times, Sunday Will come. Peace and hope and happiness will come.

One thing that I have realized lately is that when I am thinking about someone, it is usually for a reason. You never know when you will be the answer to someone’s prayer.

You have to accept whatever comes and the only important thing is that you meet it with courage and with the best that you have to give.                               ~ Eleanor Roosevelt

  1. T, what you don’t realize is that people do these things because they love you. They are blessed, too. I adore Captain America and his Superheroes- they are extraordinary and beautiful friends for your family.
    I will ALWAYS be here for you. I’m 2/3 you anyway! Love you and your uplifting blog. Keep up the good work!
