I yelled for my 17-year-old daughter. She took one look at Willow and immediately called 911. She relayed what the 911 operator was telling me to do. Within five minutes the ambulance, a fire truck and two police cars were in front of our home.
So where does the beauty part come in?
Later that day, Willow’s maternal grandparents came to the hospital. So did her uncle and her mom’s best friend. We took turns entertaining Willow because she was hooked up to monitors that wouldn’t allow her to get out of her hospital crib.
We all spent the afternoon together in support of Willow. What we actually created was a beautiful circle of love. All of our relationships deepened.
We can’t be in control over what happens in life that is stressful for us.
What we can be in control over is what we choose to focus on and see in the stressful situations we find ourselves in. I chose to see the love in that hospital room on Super Bowl Sunday. And the beauty of the circle of people who adore my little granddaughter, Willow.
In every area of our lives, and in every situation in which we find ourselves, we have a choice as to what we choose to see and feel.
It’s up to you. Which choice will you make?
