My Mother in Law is the praying kind. If you tell her a story about anyone who could use it, she'll pray for them. She started a prayer chain 20 years ago for my little cousin, about to have a bone marrow transplant, and today she's a healthy 27 year old. She did a lot of praying, and sent a lot of blessed items for my Sweet Mama when she was dying (she didn't). She prayed for my sister with her brain tumor. She conquered it. She has a lot of praying power my mother in law does. I know she prays every day for her family, the less fortunate, and for her son Dale, whom she lost a number of years ago. Her blessing over dinner takes so long, and includes so many people, the grand kids used to get the giggles when they were little. I truly think she the most praying person I know.
Tonight, she's in critical condition in hospital and she could use all the praying you've got. I took her one of my rosaries, and hope when she wakes, she will find comfort in finding it laced through her fingers. I know her hands will automatically start turning those beads. We love you Penny. And we're praying for you.
