Raining blessings from heaven

This week it has rained almost every day....almost continually at times. Just like the rain has

fallen down, money has also been pouring down to help me with my medicine. Last Sunday, a

member of our bishopric came to our home. He gave us an envelope with a note inside that

said, "please give this to Margaret Manning." Inside was $1000 to use towards my

pills. Then each day, others have contributed. A family member brought over $500 this week.

It just made me cry because I knew they needed it. My grandson several times gave me money

that he had earned. Once it was about $4, another time a penny, another time $5.04. A dear

friend sent a lovely note and donated $10. She is so sweet and such an example to me. A grand

daughter brought over money and quietly put it into my pill bank. Grandpa caught her. I am

soooo blessed and Heavenly Father surely hears and is answering our prayers in my behalf. My

prayer is that every one that helps me in any way will be blessed a hundred fold.


  1. Margaret, a dear friend in my ward sent me your blog and I have enjoyed reading your story. My name is Amy and I was diagnosed last month with a grade 4 Glioblastoma. I had surgery in December. Most of the tumor was removed. My husband and I are in the process of being evaluated by Dr. Burzynski's clinic to find out if I can be treated there. I would love to learn more about your story if you would be willing to talk with me. Please let me know if there is some way I can contact you in private. My prayers will be with you and your family!

  2. Amy,
    Good luck on your search. I wrote to Margaret for information and help and she is a great source of information and inspiration. Doug
