The big news of the day is Clara and I went to church today (just Sacrament Meeting)! Before church we went to the hospital. On Saturday they said I could bring her in on the days she needed the shots so they could help hold her down while I did the injection. Even though I wish I didn't have to do it, it helps to do it in the hospital with help. Anyway after the dreaded deed was done and she was calmed down and we headed to the elevator, I said "Mommy's sorry she has to give you the poke, but the medicine will help you to feel better." Clara's simple, "Thanks, mom" was heartbreaking and soothing at the same time. She knows. A tender mercy.
It's been way too long since I've been to church and it was rejuvenating for my mind and spirit. Today was a blessing and I hope we have many more Sundays just like today. He hears and answers prayers. Seeing where Clara is today and where she was 5 weeks ago, there is no doubt. All things are possible through Christ.
Behold, I say unto you that whoso believeth in Christ, doubting nothing, whatsoever he shall ask the Father in the name of Christ it shall be granted him; and this promise is unto all, even unto the ends of the earth. Mormon 9:21
