Joy, joy, joy down in her heart...

We are getting back to ourselves around here. She attended school today and this is how happy she was to go! It is such a great feeling to know how much she loves to go and that I feel so safe with her there. I am over the guilt of sending a fragile child so early and am convinced that to be the mom she needs for whatever time she is with us, I need the time to energize!
As you can see the smiles are returning. They are totally from ear to ear and she is clapping out of joy so much! We celebrated her oldest brothers birthday tonight and she was so happy to see him back home.
I am thankful for so much, but specifically how quickly she recovers! I wish I knew if it was the Rocephin shot on Friday evening or the move to the new fresh house. One thing I am sure is that prayers were the driving force for her recovery. Praying and hoping that she continues!

I believe in my heart that it is all a God Thing Cathy, His love for Annabel and answering the prayers of all who love her. I am so thankful to see that huge smile on her face again and know that she is feeling so much better. Of course, having an absolutely amazing mommy seals the deal:) Praying for you my sweet friend.

Love, Laurie in Ca.
