Guest contributor: Jill Wiggins of Wiggins Words and Images. Here, a short, sweet story about her daughter.
A while back, I posted on my blog a story about my daughter’s ongoing illness. She had been so sick that she wasn’t functioning, so I was taking care of her child, my granddaughter, to help out.
I wanted to help my daughter even more, though, so the day I wrote that story in my blog, I found a beautiful picture of her and her sister, both in blooming good health, and decided to start thinking of her that way: well and happy.
Later that week, the next time I saw her, I was blown away by the difference. She had seen an acupuncturist and decided to try going gluten-free, and she looked (and still looks) wonderful. I can’t take any credit for it, but it sure seemed miraculous to me. There must be some deep psychology at work there, because I don’t believe in miracles or magic.
After Rachel and Matthew had their first child, they had a couple of fights. Well, okay, more than a couple—they fought for over three years. They fought about schedules. They fought about bad habits. They even fought about the lawn mower. And besides actually having their child, it was the best thing that could've happened.
