The nudge of Hashem

Have you ever witnessed a miracle? I have, three times. Three children, three beautiful Miracles. I know your thinking yah yah yah children are miracles we get it you love your kids they are a miracle , etc. etc. etc. Really they have each defied the odds by making it here into this world. My children are the result of Hashem and only Hashem, because i was not suppose to have three children , i was not medically suppose to be able to have children at all, and the fact that i had three when doctors said i wouldn't, equals three wonderful beautiful miracles in my life. I am so lucky to have personally witnessed Hashem's handy work.

Miracles happen all the time. Maybe they are not sea splitting kind of miracles but more like little nudges from Hashem's hand. I have witnessed many of these nudges just by spending many hours on the playground as a parent and a teacher. How many times have i seen Hashem's hand brush the feather soft hair of a child as he runs past a swing that has miraculously missed the child's head by a millimeter.Im sorry, believe what you want but that is a Hashem nudge.

The examples like this are endless because as much as we think we control this world really everything in our lives is beautifully orchestrated by the one above. I try to remember this when i am running late and i pull onto the highway to only discover hours of traffic ahead of me. I try to remember this is part of the plan and Hashem didn't want me there on time. This way of thinking has brought a lot of Shalom to my life it has helped me with the largest and smallest of challenges. It really is a form of letting go, and i know first hand letting go is HARD.

On this Friday, Erev Shabbos, Chof Gimmel Iyar,May 27 2011, i personally witnessed a sea splitting miracle unfold right in front of my stunned eyes.
On this very day i sat with a close friend in a office of a top notch specialist at one of the finest hospitals in the world, and listened to this doctor tell me that my Chronic lymphocytic leukemia is no longer, and it has somehow miraculously turned into a very mild form of Lymphoma that is treatable with mild drugs and he is taking me off chemo. Let me say that again for all who might have missed it. I was told that my cancer has transformed and no longer needs chemo. Have you ever heard of that? Have you ever heard off someone being taken of chemo in thew middle of treatment because things have changed.I know i personally haven't.
I am sitting here writing this to you in shock i do not know if i should laugh, cry, celebrate, or second guess. All i know is on that very day i witnessed a miracle. Thank you Hashem for your earth shattering nudge, i truly needed it, again.

I'm so happy, Sheva. I know lymphoma, as you know, up close with my mom. Reading about it is a lot like reading the story of a child with Down syndrome, isn't it (if you are going to get one, this is the one to get.) Bye bye, chemo!

Jenny (also) said...

So you're think that folks who don't get this miracle diagnosis are chosen by Hashem to suffer more and die? So you are saying Hashwm chose you to get cancer in the first place. Nope, I'm not buying it.
Mazel Tov on your new diagnosis!That is wonderful, wonderful news. I'm wishing you a long, healthy life with your gorgeous family.

best,

jenny

That is the most AMAZING news ever!! I am so happy to hear this!

I've been having you in mind in my tefillos and even though I don't know you personally, your blog makes me feel like I know you so this news touched me in a very real way.

It shows that our tefillos have been answered - and here we were lucky enough to see the answer! Hashem saw your pain and you connected to Him through everything you experienced so now there's no need for you to continue on this path...a new road is ahead of you!

May you have a complete and speedy recovery and may the rest of your life be happy and healthy!

Catch my hug - I'm SO happy to hear this news!! You made my night!!

Celebrating with you!!! This made me so happy to hear. We'll continue praying for you as you! To think we are both mommies to little girls with Ds, diagnosed with rare chronic forms of leukemia the same week, and were both at our world-reknown oncologists on Friday (I was at MD Anderson on Friday getting my 3 month bone marrow biopsy). Pretty crazy how our paths have crossed!! Much love!!

Wow. Your post has brought me to tears. I've been very moved by your posts before but I guess not enough to bring me to action (ie, this is my first time commenting).

This makes me want to do something special, show Hashem that he needs to give us GOOD things in order to get us to act. I have a couple of ideas in mind, iyh I will take on a Hachlata in the zechus of more good and only good!!
