So sorry to hear that Gracie needed to be admitted to the hospital. I will be praying for her and for your family as well. Know that we are here for you, and we feel your agony over the health of your granddaughter.

Gentle hugs for you and for Gracie.

God will never give us more then we can handle, I just wish that God didn't trust me so much.
