The Gift of Healing!

Little did Xoch know... when she mailed me this one-of-kind doll 
that she had just created; that it would become an instrument 
of healing in my life! I am just recovering from brain surgery.
On May 15th my neurosurgeon at the University of Penn Hospital 
"clipped" three aneurysms that were detected by testing 
(MRI and MRA) for something totally unrelated!

Xoch... not knowing about my set-back simply created 
this wonderful doll that I've affectionately named "Raven" 
(because of her raven black hair and dark eyes)... 
and sent her off to me with a note!
Along with God's hand of divine intervention, the prayers of His people, 
and the love and care-giving of my family and medical team... Xoch has 
shared the gift of healing; through her creative touch!  Please visit her and drop her a note of gratitude, at her blog Xochibear's Primitives:

Once again I am reminded that: life is a gift... Daryle


  1. It never works to try and guess where healing, gifts, or inspiration will come from, does it? Just close your eyes and see with your heart. Bless you in your healing, and Xoch in her giving.

  2. Daryle ... so good to see your post. I'd been checking almost daily hoping to see a posting. Will now say prayers of thanksgiving and for continued healing. HUP is an amazing facility with great doctors ... my DH's life was saved by one in May 2006. Glad to know you are being blessed with good medical care. Hoping every day is better than the previous.

  3. Sending healing dreams your way. How wonderful that you have this beautiful gift to share your days.

  4. Daryle- you must have an amazing life story and certainly are adding to it lately! Someone is watching over you. I, however, am checking in on you once in a while and sending my prayers your way. Take care and heal quickly!

  5. Wow, Daryle, and I say that 'wow' in reverence at what you have come through. And it was a privilege to be able to pray for you and your family as you came through with flying colors!
    The doll, Raven, is exquisite. What an amazing gift from another kindred spirit. Thank you for posting the doll and the healing experience it brought to you.
    hugs to you and Katie
