thank you, dear friends

you guys sure know how to make a girl feel better.
your kind word and touching comments made me realize that I am not alone.
we all struggle with parenting and we are all just trying our hardest to do what's right for our children.
thank you.

now I must ask you for a huge favor.
a very sweet friend of mine,
a lovely, vibrant, inspiring, healthy, awesome mother, coworker, daughter, sister,
friend of mine
just found out that she has stage 4 colon cancer.
i am beyond devastated.
right now she needs prayers and hope.
and skilled surgeons and doctors.
and lots of love.
will you please pray for her? her name is angie.
my heart is broken.

i realize now how superficial and meaningless my post was yesterday.
our lives are far too short to sweat the small stuff.
i MUST remember to let go and enjoy my life. to embrace it's ups and downs and twists and turns.
it's the only one I have.

I will be praying for your friend and you. I am so sorry. It only takes one defining moment to change all our thoughts and worries in a matter of seconds. I am sorry it had to be a moment like this. It's never what we want or expect. It's just not fair.

I am praying for your friend right now. As some encouragement, i have a friend (young mom) who has stage 4 metastatic lung cancer (it started as breast cancer). She has been on her journey for 4 years! And God is healing her. Her last Cat scan showed the tumors have shrunk to a size almost invisible in a Cat scan! Her Drs. are going to do a PET scan to determine if the cells left are dead or alive cancer cells! Cancer is not big to God. I am praying...
