- 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

Time well spent

Lunch out with Shawn is one of my favourite things to do!  So grateful to feel good enough/ energy enough to go and to smile and have conversation.  That's been hard to align the past two weeks. 

Check out that sandwich: Montreal Smoked Meat.  I've never had it before but today thought I'd break out and be curious!  It was delish... hello, and poutine!  So good!

This week is my "week off" from all things chemo and cancer appointment-y!!!  Yippee!!!!  Some significant side effects and gut issues are hanging on but I am just glad for any minutes off the couch and out of the house!!!

Praying that God will help me be gracious and kind and pleasant and coping better the next round of chemo.  I was not myself, am still feeling off, and as much as pain and side effects are part of the chemo deal this time I just pray that God will help me be sweet.


  1. It's always refreshing to see you out and about! It means you are feeling 'better' and enjoying your friends & family! Love you :)

  2. Well, you certainly look the part of "sweet" :) And poutine?! Yu-um!

  3. One of my newest favorite restaurants. I highly recommend the fish tacos too! Looking smashing, dear Kristin!

  4. You look gorgeous! I'm glad you were able to get out for a lunch date with your hubby. (I love lunch dates with my hubby too!)

  5. I love hats and you look super cute in them. Looking forward to seeing your winter fashions in hats !
    I so admire your courage in posting your progress ! You are so encouraging.
