The power of Prayer

Have you ever prayed for something every single day?  You wanted it so bad and you knew it was right.  It felt right because it was right.  Well a few weeks ago I walked through The Montessori Elementary School on Montano and 4th street.  I had been to a few other open houses for the Montessori schools and they didn't feel right.  This place felt right.  There are 50 students in each grade level. 
They teach the Suzuki music method along with Montessori.  I learned the Suzuki method at age 5 on the piano.  I loved it.  I could play songs and actually enjoyed learning to play. The piano was my first love of music.  Each child choses either the violin or the cello. 
This Montessori school is highly sought after.  It is a public charter school, so most people in town want their children to attend.  After talking with many teachers and the principal, I knew I wanted Edward to go to this school.  There were well over 200 parents in attendance.  After I came home, I called my parents and asked them to fast with me on Sunday.  They did.  I asked Edward to pray.  He did.  I prayed morning and night.
The lottery drawing was held on Thursday.  Edward and I went down to watch the drawing; however, Edward quickly got bored, so we left.  I called Friday morning to find out if they had already let the parents know.  They hadn't.  The school secretary said she would call all the parents by 4:00.  If you didn't get a call, you didn't get in. 
3:00 rolled around and my phone finally rang while I was upstairs.  Edward got in!! His name was drawn.  Out of less than 50 spots available and more than 200 potential students, Edward's name was drawn!!!  I returned the phone call in tears.  This was the happiest news I have ever received.  I cried to Stephen and my parents.  Sometimes, amidst the hardest trials, Heavenly Father shines a bit of light in the darkness.  Just when I think He has forgotten my plight.  A simple prayer was answered.  Edward will be attending the Montessori Elementary School this Fall.  He wants to learn the Cello.  He has wanted to learn the Cello since he was 3.  He is so bright.  I know this is the right place for him.  I know it.  By default, this school will also become Nolen's school.  This school is equipped to handle him and I know it will be the right place for Nolen as well.  There are certainly more trials to come and I know the school will not be easy; however, I am so happy to know that Heavenly Father thinks of me and my little trials.  We are on to new adventures.  I can't wait!  Have a happy weekend!
