Happy Pink Saturday, my dearest friend. Thank you for making Pink Saturday special, and for taking part in this day of celebration and thanks.

There truly are miracles going on all around us. I remember this miracle well, and I am proud to call your Andrea my friend. She inspires me.

Hi Jeanne,
What a beautiful story of a beautiful miracle. I am so glad that Andrea received her miracle so that she could go on and be a miracle to so many.



A true miracle and blessing. That would have devastated me. I have a BIG heart and cannot stand to see a child hurt. I enjoyed your story, but not sure if I will be able to read too many of today's Pink features. Too sad.

What a blessing Andrea is. God provided for her and you during this horrible time in your lives. And her calling now speaks to how GOD has used her to fulfill his will in her life. Beautiful story. Have a wonderful MIRACLE weekend.


She is indeed your miracle, sweetpea. Happy pink saturday, chick!


Good Morning Jeanne Sweetie...
What a beautiful story you have shared for our Miracle Weekend. What a long year that must have been for you. And what a blessing Andrea is today. Doing God's work in helping to heal others in need. It takes a very special person to be a nurse. I am so thrilled that is what she set her site on and went for it.
You write so well, I felt as though I was in the vehicle with you just hurrying through the streets to follow the ambulance as well. Washing her long hair, I know about that, as mine too was long and straight. I remember laying on the kitchen counter and Moma washing mine. It was quite an undertaking.

Please stop by and leave a comment at my blog. All the comments are going to be worth a $1.00 towards another Miracle Makeover. They added my blog to the list as I took the lead when Colette was diagnosed with cancer and asked for cards to be sent to her. She is such a blessing and I love her to pieces. What a journey she has had to take. Her story will bless your heart sweet friend, as yours has blessed me this morning.

I pray you are having a wonderful weekend. Many hugs and so much love, Sherry

Morning Jeanne,

What a miracle Andrea is!!! I can't even imagine your child getting hit by a car. I am so thankful that she survived. I know she is the best nurse ever since she went through something like that. What a BLESSING she is to everyone and especially her family.♥

What a wonderful story Jeanne. My hubby spent a lot of time in hospitals as a child and that is why he too went into the medical field. I believe they are angels here on earth.
Have a wonderful weekend.


WOW! Jeanne, I thought I knew lots about you, but I didn't know about this!!! What a rough, rough time that was for Andrea and you and Bill.....and the other kids!! I just can not imagine all that you had to do.....and the suffering she endured. As you said,she is your miracle....and through her......she's the miracle to others. What a amazing share, dear one!!!

My sale.....well, the weather was in the morning and warm in the afternoon. My booth was under a lovely shade it was comfy. There weren't a lot of shoppers. I think it happened cuz the sale was bumped up a month. Anyway, sales weren't a good as last year, but I didn't have a lot of items made. I did sell a few "collected" items.....and met a gal who reads my blog!! She was buying something and saw my business card with The Stone Rabbit on it and said "I read your blog"!! That was fun! Of course, I took a picture of her....for the blog! :)

Gotta get ready for church. Hope you're having a great weekend!!! I'm still tired and my van is still packed....... L, Dana


What a lovely story and a wonderful woman. She picked a hard profession and I am so thankful there are people around like her as it is so needed in the world
Thank you for sharing♥
Hugs, Lisa


Oh, Jeanne! What a hard time and what an uplifting story! Your sharing it is a great honor and a blessing, and she's doubly my Hero now---when you first mentioned that she was a hospice nurse, I held her close in my heart, for so is my DDIL, and the ones who cared for Daddy in his last days were just angels on Earth, as well.

Thank you for giving your friends this so-personal glimpse of your family's trials and triumphs.

Jeanne, what a wonderful mom you are and what a fabulous gal Andrea turned into..things happen in our lives for a reason, sometimes we don't know the 'why' until much later.

God bless you both


So glad your daughter made it through such an ordeal. So wonderful that she chose nursing as a career, nurses are indeed a special breed. Thank you for sharing with us.

Dear Sweet sister

This was such a difficult time for all of us. I have never been so fearful for any of our precious children then that night at the hospital. I am so proud of all that Andy has accomplished in her life. We share a love for all that Hospice does for all who are in the last days of life. God Bless you Andrea
Much love Aunt Carmen
