Priesthood Blessings

My 5 month old daughter has had a terrible cold since Thursday. On Thursday night she woke up at least every hour screaming, (she normally sleeps through), so I just held her all night so she could sleep more upright and breathe easier. Last night when we went to put her down she screamed and screamed at every attempt to lay her down, we even tried the baby swing and still she could find no comfort. I had the thought "MyMy needs a blessing", so I asked my husband to give her one, which he willingly did, and in it said that she would have a peaceful night. Tom rocked her until she fell asleep then laid her in her crib, it's now 9am and she's still sleeping.

I have a few people who are close to me who rationalize away things like blessings / prayers being answered as coincidences or your mind tricking itself into the miracle etc., but how can a 5 month old baby do that. MyMy didn't even understand the words her daddy spoke, but she can understand all of the feelings of the Spirit and her faith is pure, and she can receive miracles, I know because she did last night.

 "For behold, I am God; and I am a God of miracles; and I will show unto the world that I am the same yesterday, today, and forever; and I not among the children of men save it be according to their faith".

PS - Happy Birthday President Monson, he's 83 today:)
