Today I read a news line from WIS TV in Columbia, SC, (on facebook) reporting that a Mother who was ill with H1N1 (swine flu) had given birth to a healthy baby, and then died.
While it was a sad and tragic story, my mind immediately went to the strength of the story. This young Mother, with God’s help I’m sure, was somehow able to live long enough to bring her child into this world, before she allowed this terrible virus to consume her life.
What a victory!
I hope that the child is told of the strength of his/her Mother… the strength that kept her alive long enough to give the world the best gift she could… her child – and what a special child this must be.
Sometimes the greatest miracles are born out of tragedy.
God bless the child!
