'God's Got This' Hoda Shares After Daughter's Harrowing Hospital Stay

After a scary hospital stay while her daughter was ill, Hoda Kotb opens up about gratitude and how ‘God’s got this.’

Many parents have been there. Terrified to find themselves in the hospital with their sick little one. That was Hoda’s recent reality, but now that her daughter is safe back at home, she opened up about her experience on the Today Show.

“I’m so happy to be back,” she said to Jenna Bush Hager. “I feel like life is one way on a Monday, and we all have our Mondays, and we complain about them…and then Tuesday rolls around, and something really hits hard. And you realize that Monday was actually pretty awesome.”

Hoda continued, “So for us, it was little Hope who had to go to the hospital, and she was in the ICU for a few days and then in the hospital for another week. And it was really scary. And she’s vibrant and brilliant, and she’s home. She’s home! I’m over the moon that she’s home. And I can’t believe how amazing people are. That’s the thing I learned through all this, you know, like the nurses who stood by her all the way. The nurses who checked on her constantly, the doctors who came in, the people who took care of us. And I felt like we were held.”

Thank goodness for such a caring and attentive hospital staff. Hoda then goes on to talk about gratitude and how it is sometimes hard to choose it, but it is so important.

“I always talk about gratitude,” she shared. “But I found myself not living in that lane because I was scared. And then I decided, ‘You know what, let me think about this for a minute.’ I have a family who loves me. I have a little girl who’s home. I have a wonderful support system. I have doctors who would have done anything to make everything better, and they did. So, sometimes you talk about gratitude, and then when you’re pushed to the limit, you’re like, ‘Do I feel it?’”

Hoda then shares about the important reminder that she wears around her neck: “I’m wearing this little thing that a friend sent to me…it says ‘God’s got this.’”

What an incredible reminder for us all! Even in the hard times of life, God’s got us. We are held in the palm of His hand. Amen!
