Flowers leading the way.

I came home from a meeting last night at 8:30 PM and saw this trail of flowers leading me to my door.
I have a special friend named Chris an 11 year old Mexican boy that has adopted me as his Grandma I guess. He is the most polite kid I have known and very thoughtful! I told this before but I'll repeat it.
I met him on March 2nd. I had an epidural steroid injection on my lower spine for pain I have been living with. I was at home and very cranky and feeling upset. My health had been bad for the past 6 months and I was at my wits end. I couldn't make it to Bible study that night so the gals decided to come over to my house instead. It was 6:00 and I heard a knock on my door. I opened the door and there stood two little Mexcican boys. I said "ok, what're you selling"? They said "nothing, we brought you flowers because you are such a nice person". Well my heart melted immediately, and I invited them in. The gals from my Bible study started showing up and I introduced them all then the boys left.
That night the gals asked me if I would mind if they annointed me and prayed for me. I was speachless. I'm new at this Church stuff and didn't really know what to say, but I was hurting and at my lowest, so I said ok. They did the praying and I felt absolutely awesome. I cannot explain it, but I felt warm inside and euphoric. (they explained it was the Holy Spirit entering my body). The very next day my blood sugars started dropping and from that day on I have been off of insulin. I have lost 40 pounds and I can breathe again without feeling like I was going to faint! I'm not foolish enough to say I will leave it all up to God now, because I do know I am Diabetic and can go right back on insulin and be right back where I was, but God gave me that kick start I needed! I thank the Lord daily for what he has given me.
I do believe he sent me a guardian angel in the likes of an 11 year old boy.
Life is goooooood!
Chris visits me every single day.

Pain and Suffering is inevitable
but Misery is optional.
