pretty room tour + a miracle

Wanted to pop in and share serious inspiration for your day:  something pretty, something healthy, and a mind-blowing miracle that recently happened in our town.  The miracle is my favorite part of this post (and will give you goosebumps), but I know this is a design blog so I’ll start with that first.  Plus, I like to end on a note that inspires you spiritually. 

Love this wooden chandelier in this modern farmhouse master bedroom tour by Becki Owens.  This room is beautiful and I’m in love with the clean white, masterful pops of blue, and rustic wood accents.

That fabulous chandelier can be found here.

Also love this wooden chandy, which is a little more traditional and a little less pricey.

We have multiple kids sick at home (it’s been like a hospital in our house).  I’ve been washing my hands like crazy and cleaning all surfaces possible in hopes that no one else gets sick – basically it’s only my husband and me left.  Like two sitting ducks.

When we were at our pediatrician’s office, she recommended we start taking Elderberry immediately – she says it really helps protect the body from everything that’s going around right now.  She told us she takes it and it really works.  As a testimony, she shared that she recently had to do mouth-to-mouth on a flu-positive infant (who had a flu-induced seizure) in the grocery store and she still did not contract the flu.  Wait, what?

This is an amazing story:  a mother was in the grocery store and her infant went into a seizure.  After trying to figure out what was going on, the mother panicked and ran up to our pediatrician (who was there shopping with her own children on her day off) and handed her baby to her while she ran to get medical help.  As a mom, I cannot imagine the panic and complete horror of that situation.  The mother had no idea the woman she handed her baby to was a physician who was a neonatal specialist.  The baby was blue.  Our pediatrician assessed the baby and immediately started mouth-to-mouth, and after 15 minutes was able to revive her.  You may be asking “but why was the baby having a seizure?”  Our pediatrician explained that infants can go into seizure if their fever quickly spikes, and this type of seizure can last up to ten minutes.  The baby was blue because the seizure had lasted beyond ten minutes.

That is what I call evidence of God’s timing.

I had goosebumps and tears in my eyes as she told me this story.  In one simple breath, this mother could have lost her child.  This baby could have taken her last breath.  But she was saved by the kindness, knowledge, and care of someone else.

We can all be a miracle in someone’s day – whether it’s a small, simple moment of kindness, or an event as big as saving a life.

Go be the miracle.
