Woman wakes from coma to baby’s cry

A mother Shelly Cawley who slipped into coma after the birth of her child had miraculously woken up after the she heard her baby’s cries. The family of the woman thought they were going to say their last goodbye to the woman as they were escorted through the hallways of North Carolina Hospital. Her blood pressure was dangerously low (60/40, doctors later told the family) and her heart rate was soaring (more than 180 beats per minute). Cawley was hooked up to what doctors called “the last-chance ventilator,” a machine pumping air into her lungs with such force that it rattled her hospital bed with each artificial breath, her husband, Jeremy Cawley, said. They were willing to try anything to give this mom a reason to live.  So they stripped the baby down and put her skin to skin on her mother’s chest.  They wanted her to feel, smell and hear the baby giving her a reason to fight. And they thought Rylan Grace Cawley — just hours old — might be the only one who could help. They had to tickle and pinch the baby a bit to get her to cry so her mother could hear her. When the baby did, her mother’s vitals jumped . e said he was told it may have given her the strength she needed to push through. A week later, Shelly Cawley woke up and met her baby daughter. Even though in a coma the mother still knew her little girl was there and that she needed her.  What a heart warming story.

Mama Helps the Baby Learn

Here is a wonderful video that shows just how much mothers are alike whether human or animals.  This little Polar Bear cub can not swim yet.  This polar bear family was living together.  Having fun. Learning new things. Growing up.  The little cub playing and romping just like baby children do.  And just like mothers do her mom is watching.  Watching her every move.  But staying just far enough away to let her make mistakes.  That is when it happens.  In a brief moment she fell into deep water. In that very instant the mom does what every mom would do and then you must watch to see what happens.  You expect her to grab her and pull the lttle cub right out of water.  But instead she is right there so nothing happens but allows the cub to save herself.  Would you, as a mother, jump in and just save your child or allow her to find her own way out of the mess she got herself into?  What a wonderful display of a relationship between a mother and her child.  Mother “Kurumi” & “Milk”(female/4month old) what great family.

Stranger Buys Car for Single Mom

A struggling North Carolina mother got the surprise of a lifetime when a stranger bought her a car.  WLOS reports that Connie Cole recently called Carolina Auto Sales in Black Mountain in desperate need of a car. The mother of three had no way of realizing that a stranger overheard the conversation over the speakerphone. After the conversation ended, the stranger told the car lot owner to call him if the mother comes back. The stranger said he “heard something in her voice” and wanted to buy her the car. He said “the Lord” wanted him to do it. He asked the dealership to let him know if she came back.  When she returned to the car dealer with her father who provided the down payment of $800 she discovered that a stranger would be paying the remaining $2200.

The mother works at an Asheville sub shop. She said she will never forget him and that it “just means the Lord is out there.”

Happy Mother’s Day

Due to an amazing story of a mom getting rescued on Friday we moved our Mother’s Day story to today.  I hope you all had a great day with Mom and I hope you will enjoy this message because everyday should be Mother’s Day.  Don’t let any day go by where you don’t tell someone whether it be your mom or your dad or just anyone just how much they mean to you.  Life is short and time goes by so fast.  If you wait it could be too late.

Tissue Alert… This one will touch your heart. I know this is a Telefloral commercial but it is much much more.  This is such a touching message for all mothers out there.  I dare you not to be emotional as you watch this message created by a son for his mother. This is an amazing video. Please take a few minutes to watch this great video.  After the video … call someone you care about and say “I Love You”.  You will be glad you did.

Have a GREAT day…by making it a great day for someone else!!!

Happy Mother's Day

Mother pays the Ultimate price for her child

This story is full of bad news and good news.  I was tempted to not show it but I do think we need to appreciate the generosity of the community and the people who surround this couple is worth seeing.  Too often when bad things happen we get so caught up in the tragedy that we cannot see to appreciate the joy.  This is a story of a woman who was suffering with cancer.  She was better and seemed to have survived the cancer.  She got pregnant only to find out that the cancer had returned.  If she would choose to fight the disease she would endanger the child. She chose the life of the child over her own.  By not taking the treatments she will surely not survive this time.  In hearing of this tragedy the community and her friends and family worked hard to give her the wedding of her dreams.  She believes that she should live the life she has left.  So for not cost to her or her family she was able to have the wedding she had dreamed of.  Our prayer for this family is to enjoy the life and the time they have together.  Never take the time you have for granted.  Enjoy life and help those around you that need your help.

Mother Hears Son’s Voice For The First Time

WOW.  This video really touched me.  Here was a mom that lost her hearing over 15 years ago.  She has been living with the silence all that time. She tells how difficult it is to be in a group and follow a conversation.  She has to read lips to understand people speaking to her.  She said that her loss was so bad that even hearing aids were never an option.  She has been living with this so long that she has never heard her 8 year old son’s voice.  She seemed reluctant to get the implant that would allow her to hear.  We can’t really understand what she was going through.  She met with a doctor 2 years ago to begin the process of getting a cochlear implant.  This video shows her doctor discussing the process and gives us a little insight into her feelings.  TISSUE ALERT – at the end of the video her little boy comes up behind her and speaks.  That is the first time she hears his voice.  It is so touching.  How wonderful that the technology is available to help this family.  How it touched this little boy that his mom was able to hear his voice.  So what was the first thing he told her.  I love you.  What a moment.  Share this one with your family and friends.

Son Brings Joy to His Mother

Sometimes you want to do something nice for someone, something that brings joy. This is a story about a son who worked very hard to do something nice for his mom. I have seen other videos like this but this one really touched me with the feelings he has to bring his mother so much joy.  We don’t get the back story of why she wanted this car but you can tell that it was very special to her.  You can also see that he got much more joy from this act just by giving it to her.  I love his statement at the end, “This is a wonderful moment, and a rate one. Do one nice thing for your parents today.  It doesn’t have to be big. Give them a call and let them know how much they mean to you.”.  He is right.  Don’t wait.  Don’t let another day slip by without sharing your love with someone.  It can be your parents, your children, your family or even your friends.  Time takes away those we care about too soon.  Don’t let time rob you of sharing your love with others.  It doesn’t have to be a huge gift like this one.  Just watch the video and enjoy his joy of giving. Thanks again to Patricia M for sending us this story.

Son brings Joy to his mother

Mother and Son Reunited

I need to tell you that this is not a current story.  I found this one while searching for a great story to bring you.  When I discovered it I thought it was worth sharing even though it happened several years ago.  It is never too late for good news.  Here is the story of a boy that was put up for adoption as a baby.  He so wanted to find his birth mother and be reunited that he had been searching for four years.  One day he discovered that he was misspelling her name.  When he corrected the error he discovered that there was a woman with that name in his town.  He was tellng a coworker that her name was Tallady not Talladine.  The coworker said. “Like Chris Tallady that works upfront?”.  It turns out that the woman he had been searching for was the head cashier at the store they both worked at.  The adoption agency agreed to break the news to Chris telling her that a coworker named Steve was the son that she had given up for adoption so many years ago She had been hoping for a long time that someday she would get a call out of the blue that her son had found her.   So she asked the manager to check the files for the birthdate.  For 8 months they had worked together not knowing they were mother and son.   What a wonderful surprise for both them.  Now they have a chance to become real family.

A Mom’s Heroic Act Saves Her Children

This is a story that happened 10 years ago this week.  I recently saw an update for it but this original story seemed to tell the tale much better.  Thanks to Kimberly C and Tiffany G for finding this story.  This was taken from an Oprah show about Moms.  This story is about a family vacation that changed their lives forever.  Joy and her family were headed to a vacation spot in Colorado.  After Joy and the other adults stepped out of their SUV somehow the car suddenly started rolling away towards a steep cliff.  Joy ran after the SUV throwing herself in front of it in an attempt to stop the moving vehicle.  Her act slowed the vehicle just enough for her father to jump in and stop the vehicle in time.  In time to save the kids but not in time to help Joy.  Her back was broken in the accident  to leave her paralized and never to walk again.   These little children are grown up now but still admire their Mom for the sacrifice she made.  Here is a link to their Mother’s Day message they did for their mom. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-KA8pL64W1I  Both these videos show a mother’s love and the daughter’s love for their mother.  It is amazing what we will go through for our kids.  This mom raised some pretty amazing kids too.
