Everyday Things


I have decided to play along with Everyday Things. Since I have ventured into the world of Blog reading I have been inspired by the Christian Women who include their incredible faith in their posts. But I believe I have seen a miracle occur that I want to celebrate. The Daughter of friends of my large extended family was diagnosed with Stage 2 Breast Cancer at the age of 25 in 2003. At the same time she discovered she was pregnant. She put off treatment for a few month for the baby. Unfortunately the baby died in premature labor at 7 months. But she got better until this year when her cancer came back at a stage 4. She's maintained a blog. She got the results of her latest scan to see if her Chemo was having any effect. The Tumor markers are gone! Praise the Lord! She's one of those poeple I think of and wonder why one person has to go through some much heartache and tragedy. Makes me thankful for the life I have. I have made it a point to say prayers of Thanksgiving on my drive home most nights. Sometimes It's Thank You for my car not sliding on the wet road or Thanks for the inclination to slowdown and thank for keeping me safe from harm. Last nigt I was saying Thanks for Melissa's recovery.

That is truly something to be thankful for. I have a good friend who is going through breast cancer right now. Two years ago, her 3 yr. old son was killed in a car wreck. A few months later, her dad died of cancer. I'm with you - why does so much have to happen to her? She's thankful!

It is amazing how God works through people in our lives to help us know He is there through humility and compassion and pain and suffering and healing! I love to hear of women overcoming great obstacles and remaining faithful.
