I stood in the yard waiting for the ambulance. Light from the windows and door of our house flooded onto the dark lawn. It was 3:00 a.m., and I’d done what you’re supposed to do when your husband wakes you up to tell you he feels numbness and tingling down the entire left side of his body. I’d called 911.
I was doing the best I could to hold onto bravery.
The 911 team confirmed my fears. My husband was probably having a mini-stroke, but he was stable enough for me to drive him myself to the big regional medical center.
A half an hour later we walked into the ER, where they immediately ushered Jose into an emergency care room. My courage started to crumble as I sat next to that hospital bed. Tears overflowed as worry set in.
Then Kindness walked into that emergency room.
Follow me over to Dayspring’s (in)courage to read the rest of my story about how simple kindness redeemed an unexpected hospital stay, and how you can look a little more like Jesus yourself.
