My mother has had a rough couple of years with her depression. It has taken her to an alcoholic state just to numb herself daily and it has saddened our families heart. After years of hard prayer she was able to find a doctor who was able to prescribe her the right depression meds and she seems to be doing quite well. That isn’t the only praise however that was spectacularly awesome! My father was going on a business trip and asked my mother to go with him. It is a week long trip to the beach where they used to live and since my mother’s birthday is at the same time, she agreed. My wife and I prayed that she would experience a really cool blessing while she was away and God answered. The day before her birthday we gave my folks a call and my mother answered. She proceeded to tell us about a whale watching trip they had taken and how excited she was. Instead of seeing a whale they saw a pod of around 300 dolphins that were jumping and playing all around their boat! If that is not a blessing than I don’t know what is. The sound of happiness in my mother’s voice made me smile and I automatically praised God. If you have been going through something really tough in your life, feel free to ask God for a blessing in your life or maybe someone else’s. God bless you all and have a great day!
