    There’s ONE in Every Group…

    On Monday afternoon, my hubby brought home a bundle of flowers from the country-side road.  They were a little pitiful in appearance due to wilting from the lengthy trip home, but I quickly searched my cupboard for a tall jar with hopes of their full recovery. I placed each one in carefully in the jar of water and set them nearby the dining room window. My hubby looked a little disappointed as he took in the sight of their deathly appearance.  I replied, “Let’s wait and see what happens!” Within an hour, there were only a few happy campers in my makeshift vase.  We ate a quick bite for supper…

    The Greatest Valentine Gift Ever Given

    Today, I operated on a little girl. She needed O- blood. We didn’t have any, but her twin brother has O- blood. I explained to him that it was a matter of life and death. He sat quietly for a moment, and then said goodbye to his parents. I didn’t think anything of it until after we took his blood and he asked, “So when will I die?” He thought he was giving his life for hers. Thankfully, they’ll both be fine.  (Story borrowed from 60 Tiny Love Stories to Make You Smile – #7) This sweet, little story reminds me of the Bible verse in John 15:13 which says,…
