In 2004 I heard the news that no mother wants to hear; your child will surely die. My unborn baby was diagnosed with severe hydrocephalus and I was told repeatedly that there was no hope. That baby miraculously lived and thrives today, walking, talking and surpassing every prediction ever made about his life. A few short years later in 2007 and another child added to my brood, my husband was diagnosed with brain cancer. We fought that battle for three years and then in the summer of 2010 he received his healing in heaven. I was left a widow with four young children and then a miracle happened. My God blessed me beyond measure with a man in Oklahoma who had lost his wife to the same incurable disease four days after my late husband had died. He was struggling with raising three young children without a mother and was committed to praying for a wife and mother to enter their lives. We were connected by a complete stranger who followed both of our online ramblings. Completely smitten with one another, we met 6 weeks after the first correspondence, become engaged two months after contact, and married within the year. This is our story of faith, hope and love. Never give up hope!! Just keep livin!!
This week's recipe is a favorite of ours and a go to for anything that needs a spaghetti sauce - chicken parm, spaghetti casserole, and of course, my favorite, spaghetti and meatballs. It's easy, completely healthy (no sugar!) and full of nutrients.
