Can I Be Like You When I Grow Up..........

My Sis in Law Becky is one AMAZING women!!!! I've always known this but on this trip it was only magnified by her example!!!
When we were sitting at Denny's the first night we got there Kiersten started crying cause her fingers were literally turning purple from swelling and they knew they were going to have to take her to the hospital but didn't know what to expect. Kiersten was worried as you can imagine and didn't want to go for fear that it would hurt or the dr.s would be mean! Becky consoled her and told her something that changed my way of looking at being a mom FOREVER!!! She told her that it was her job as the mom to help Kiersten not be afraid and to tell her that she would be ok cause that's what the mom does, they help their kids know it will be okay even if they really don't know! that the Dr's worked for her and she could fire them if she needed to and also the nurses! as she sat there in Denny's holding Kiersten even I felt better about the situation, and I was about to take 7 kids back to the Hotel, I really wasnt worried about that, but just prayed that all would be well with Kiersten and I knew with her mama by her side it all would be!
I love you Bec
