- 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

Tears today

I am sitting here crying and I don't know why.  I feel okay. I have peace.  I miss my sisters.  They are on different work schedules from my last chemo and I miss them. 

No reason to cry, but reasons to cry and emotions to release and meds that cause mood changes.  Just gotta shake your head at the cancer-y-ness and let the tears run their course and move forward. 

I'm going Christmas shopping today.  I have the shakes and I am lightheaded but Mom and I are going to having a holly jolly good time and I'm excited!  Smiling now. 


  1. thanks for explaining about the gloves, does that mean you can go for manicures ? :)
    praying you had a good cry and a great time with your mom. Rachel R.

  2. Seeing that picture makes me wish I could climb through my computer and give you a big hug. Hope you have a fabulous day of shopping with your mom!

  5. Hope you had a great day shopping and enjoyed some vitamin D too?! Thinking of you xoxo Devana

  6. I know it's so hard for you. We all 'carry on' with our work and you have to sit home feeling the affects of chemo and cancer. I'm so sorry Kris :( I know it's so very hard for you on multiple levels. I love you!
