- 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

We are changed.

We are changed.  I have noticed it for the past few months, over the summer as we spent time together without the busy of the regular schedule.  More noticeable with all six of us sharing space more, home together more.  We are changed.  The way the kids look at me, handle me, treat me, it is different.  They are kids who saw their mommy so incredibly sick, lifted cups of water to her lips when she could not, watched her sitting in the corner chair weeping silently in her weakened physical and emotional state, do still hear the murmurs of the people around them, feel the weight of the fear that 'cancer' can be.  This morning I am mourning this change.  My heart is heavy, broken.  Weighted down in this understanding.


  1. I have not met you that I know of. My husband went to school with your sister's and we also went to the same church as them for a few years. I have been sending prayer's of faith and standing with you in prayer for a complete healing. This morning this song was posted by someone on fb and I totally felt it was meant for me but with with reading your blog this last week it is for you as well. My God Is Awesome. He WILL move your mountain.

  2. Praying for you always. ((hugs))
