It is such a blessing to see PLAY, JOY, FUN, SILLINESS, returning to our chronically stressed world after so many years of pure survival mode! heart emoticon It was so fun to watch Rick playing little games with each of our kids as he scraped their car windows for the ride to school this morning. heart emoticon My heart is FULL to overflowing, yet incredibly LIGHT this morning. heart emoticon So blessed by my family, so thankful we are still together after life knocked us down hard and tried to shatter us apart. heart emoticon
Thirty-nine-year-old Jennifer Saake (founder, Hannah's Prayer Ministries), experienced 6 strokes via vertebral dissection at a chiropractic office, including brain stem and cerebellum bleeds, in Oct. 2011. Jenni remained hospitalized for nearly 2 months and was not expected to live (near death experience) nor recover, but if she even survived, she was slated to live out her days in a nursing home or, best case, to maybe come home but wheelchair-bound and needing 24-hour care. At 5 years, 7 months God showed how He was writing her story from the beginning.
Jenni is currently writing more books and stays active on both Facebook and Pinterest. Here is her resume.
Since Jenni's chiropractor carried no insurance and moved out of the country soon after the accident (thus avoiding any legal or financial consequences), if you would like to help contribute to the Saake (pronounced like the two small words, say and key) family's massive financial needs (medical expenses alone are estimated to cost between $1- and $1.5- Million in Jenni's lifetime), please visit Jennifer Saake's Stroke Survivor GoFundMe Page. (This support information has been added in direct response to several reader requests.) The Saakes sincerely thank you for your prayers and if God prompts and equips you to send any monetary assistance as well, this is a significant added blessing.

Glimpses of Normal
Just stumbled across something I posted to Facebook on Feb. 12. Want to be sure I don't loose a record of this!
