- Peace for Shawn and I, for Kyle and Miranda and Braden and Connor, for our parents and siblings and nieces and nephews and inner circle friends watching and hurting as we go through this
- that God would keep soft our children's hearts toward Him through all the emotions of this hard journey
- strength and stamina; physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually
- that the cancer shrinks to gone, gone, gone!
- gentle side effects to this second round of chemo
- family unity, harmony, love, strength, joy, happiness
- anything else you feel God puts on your heart

Sitting here in a complete ugly cry... But it is beautiful, it feels like I am glowing because my tears are from abundance and blessed and God's amazing-ness and I am just so grateful-heart-ed. They are tears of worship. God is so good. I am laughing-crying, joy-filled, just happy. So happy. Sitting here alone in tears. Happy. Smiling from my heart. Thank you Jesus. Just crying. And smiling and grateful. So grateful. Blessings to you today. May you feel laughter in your heart. Thank you Lord, You have done good things. You are good.

Note: I have no reason to be "extra" happy today, beyond the usual of "thank you lord, I woke up" and every single myriad-of-blessings-of this life we live. Don't you sometimes just burble forth with happiness? I really pray you do. It's awesome and life is good... Revel in the good, my friends. With love and joy. Kristin


  1. If everyone 'burbled forth" a fraction of the happiness in this post this world would be a much better place.
    I will accept this challenge!

  2. I try to rejoice every day. I'm glad you can see all that from where you are. Whatever you are feeling is what you should be feeling that day. Enjoy it, both the up days and the down days. You are where you should be in your battle and you are winning!! Judy

  3. How inspiring you are. Reminding me to choose joy and choose to embrace today. My nearly 3-yr old is now (seemingly) starting her 'terrible 2's'... today :) I'm learning to embrace each day of those two's, and even see them as terrific sometimes, and ask God - what God-thing do you want me to see / learn today?
    thank you! my thoughts are with you & hope for more energy this week.
    love & blessings, Devana

  4. You have been on my heart today....trusting you are having a good day!

  5. Touching base with my scrappy world and thought of you...praying for you and yours with improved health and much happiness.
