wednesday words

My niece in Washington state is also a mother of 5. They have had them even closer than I have. About a month ago they found out that their youngest child, Clara has neuroblastoma and now she is in the middle of treatment spending what will be become possibly a year in two different hospitals both over a couple of hours from their home. Can you imagine doing this with four other children whose lives are just going on also? The oldest is my daughter Camille’s age -9. They have a lot of family in the area who are all pitching in for those left at home but it is heartbreaking for the parents to be forced to not only worry immensely about their very sick two-year old undergoing cancer treatment but also to be away from the other four. She is blogging about the experience and inspires me daily on how lucky I am to be a mother home doing laundry, cleaning up messes, packing lunches every day and wearing yourself out serving those little kids that keep you so busy. She would give anything to go back to those days. If you would like you can read her story on her blog and read of her faith and fortitude amidst this extremely hard trial. We all have so much to be grateful for and reading about this has reminded me to count my blessings. Here is the link. She has retitled her blog “all these things shall give thee experience and shall be for thy good”

If this seems rushed that’s because it is. I totally forgot about this blog today. We have been moving all day and now need to be at the church in less than an hour. Hopefully I will see you there. Congrats to all our new graduates!
