While the Opa still had a long road to recovery, his improvement astounded and amazed the physicians. Everybody was inspired by the amazing experience to have a bit more faith.
Never underestimate the impact of prayer and love. Little Owen’s acts meant a lot to his family and were surely an encouragement to them. Grandmother Nancy thought the narrative would be a source of optimism in the midst of so much “doom and gloom” in the world.
Owen’s optimism was unaffected by what the physicians thought or predicted since he trusted in something more significant. Congratulations to the courageous young prayer warrior for his perseverance and dedication to his lovely cousin.
