Joey+Rory’s prayers are answered as they are blessed to bask in birthday bliss Entertainment Tonight screenshot

Joey Feek is beautiful.

Cancer will never take that away.

But on the day of Joey+Rory’s dear daughter Indiana’s birthday on Feb. 17, there was a radiance that came from Joey’s face in a gorgeous picture that fans have not seen shine so bright since news of her cancer diagnosis reached us all last year.

…some birthdays are more than just birthdays. They're dreams coming true and prayers being answered.

Maybe it was the winter sun peaking through the windows of the childhood home Joey now lives in or maybe it was the way she seemed totally captivated in the sweet moment with her now 2-year-old daughter.

Or perhaps, she was just at peace – perfect and beautiful peace.

At peace with her cancer diagnosis and at peace about her future and at peace knowing that she had lived to see sweet Indiana’s face on the morning of her second birthday. “Some birthdays are more than just birthdays,” Joey+Rory wrote. “They’re dreams coming true and prayers being answered.”

Indeed, there were countless prayers lifted up that Joey would live to see this day. Prayers we prayed would be heard. Prayers we hoped would work. And now, to see the moment come to fruition before our eyes via a joyous social media post assures us of one thing.
