Light in the Darkness

"All the darkness in the world cannot extinguish the light of a single candle." ~ St. Francis of Assisi

Let us be that single candle, spreading light into a dark world!

Welcome to my Light in the Darkness meme! (If you missed my post on the inspiration for this meme, you can read all about it HERE.)

This is the place to share good things that are happening in our world...whether it's a link to a news article/video, something from your personal experience...anything good that can bring light into darkness!
I've known Mary Lenaburg & her family online for several years now. Even though we've never met in person, I consider her a dear friend & sister in Christ. She's been a BIG source of inspiration for me as she openly shares the ups & downs of life & especially of their BEAUTIFUL special needs daughter, Courtney. One of the things I love about her writing is that she keeps it real...there's no constant, only show the Pollyanna fluff to her blog. She shares the good, the bad, the beautiful, the ugly, the laughter, & the tears! It's all there!

Today, I'm sharing her most recent blog post, about their recent hospitalization for Courtney. If anyone is able to spread light in the darkness of this world & the dark side of special needs parenting, it's Mary! I encourage you to also take the time & read the "My Story" link at the top of her blog page. You WON'T be sorry! What a wonderful wife, mother, friend to all!

Wow truly inspiring. And a bit of a tear-jerker I might add.
She does write well. and what a witness she and her daughter were to those medical students. Awesome.
