    Hi Amy, This is Gloria’s mom, over here in Michigan. I know all that it took for Gloria to find the words she wanted to “publicly” share her sacred experience before, during, and continuing on after Russell’s birth. I just wanted to tell you that I am so grateful it happened here, on your blog, where your heart to help us all find our deepest relationship with the Lord and His purpose for us is the perfect place. And the story looks
    so beautiful! Thank you!ReplyCancel

The day started like any other. Or maybe not so much. Like any other day, we woke up early and got the two oldest ready for school. Unlike any other day, they took a few pictures with daddy before getting on the bus. Like any other day, Seth spent a bit of time on his phone, then a…

    I started reading this on my phone, I didn’t have my reading glasses on so I got about two lines into it and quit-it was too hard to read. That struck me a bit with guilt, in light of eye cancer. I’m continually annoyed when I go to read something and can’t (at least not without my readers on). Today, I read this post from beginning to end and am still amazed as always by the life story you create with words. I’m thankful for my sight. I’m thankful for positive results with Seth Pederson eye cancer. So very grateful! I told Seth he’s a super hero…and I mean it! So are yoU! You are both unlike anyone else I know. Thankful to know you both. Praying that continued healing takes place and does so to the FULL. Hugs!ReplyCancel

  • Denise KormanMay 25, 2015 - 1:18 am

    Amy, I truly believe the strength, love and courage that you and Seth have on this long journey and your exceptional belief and strength in God will carry you both through ! We always hear life still goes on and I don’t have to tell a wife, Mom of three on and on that it does, and in a way it’s good thing ! You and your family are always in my prayers ! I can’t wait to meet you, such an exceptional woman in a few weeks ! God Bless !

    As I was reading this, I too welled up with emotion. I couldn’t help think something really crazy!! Amy, you know your Grandma Hjelmhaug, ( my mom), played by note and by ear and could play any song beautifully without looking at the piano keys. This sounds ridiculous, but it made me think of my mom’s exceptional talent coming through this special woman.??? Maybe your grandma was playing just for you at that moment???? Good thinking, anyway. 🙂 She would’ve LOVED to have played at a place like Mayo Clinic and especially for you two!! We’re all still praying and praying for Seth and keeping an upbeat attitude. Love you all so much!! XOXO Mom 🙂ReplyCancel
