This is a public "diary" of a family whose little girl started a battle with inoperable cancer in April 2005. In December 2007 our house burned down. And in September 2009 Mommy was diagnosed with a terminal disease (a genetic form of ALS) that took her to Heaven in July, 2011, leaving Daddy and two young girls to make it on their own. Over several years of ups and downs, you will get into our hearts, minds and souls as we share joys and sorrows. It can sometimes be very difficult to read. We hope it is also uplifting. Please find joy in what you read here.

Life Goes Full Circle

Oh the thoughts and memories that are flooding back. Some close friends of ours are driving their motorhome to the hospital right now. Their 11 year old daughter has a tumor that they believe to be cancerous and she is undergoing her first surgery tomorrow morning at 6am.

She (mom) first called us a few days and you could tell on the phone that something was wrong as her voice was empty - not her normal strong powerful self. We knew right away without her saying what it was. Don't know how, but we did.

In trying to help them through these first days/weeks we are experiencing a flood of memories and emotions. In many ways it is like we are going with them. Just trying to help them with some logistics of where they can park their motorhome at the hospital tonight brought daddy to speechless tears. Of course we wouldn't have it any other way and will be there for them throughout this event in their lives like so many of you were for us; nobody can do this alone.

PLEASE share a moment of prayer with your family and with God, asking that Julia, Linda and Ron (and all of their family) receive strength and the support that they need from God and His servants. Pray for a miracle to reveal itself in tomorrow's surgery.

And hug your little one's just a little bit longer because you never know what tomorrow will bring.

When you get a chance, let us know how the family is doing. II Corinthians 1:4 is being played out in your life.
