Hashem's Salvation in the Blink of an Eye-Mazel Tov Mazel Tov

In my wildest dreams I never would have imagined making 2 such amazing simchas in one week.  We made a Seudas Hodaas for a previously sick family member, and a L'Chaim for a child who is been in the Parsha for longer then we ever dreamed it would be.

There is no way that I can adequately express my Hakoras Hatov to Hashem for bringing me to this point.  I want to share with everyone that Tefila works.  Don't ever dispare.  Hashem can cause miracles.
