Visit Rebekah's Page to get updates, read messages and send messages to Rebekah and her family through comments. 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.

I have never thought of your sharing as "whining". I like to know good days, bad days, and all the blessings you have to share along the way. Specific prayer needs, as well as answered prayer.
May God continue to bless you all and may He continue to keep you under the shadow of His wings!
Love,
Teresa Mathia

Scott, you don't owe your readers anything. We continue to pray for you all. Use your time as you need/want to. I am sure you time is taken up 125%. Love, and bless you all.

Scott,

Only write when it helps you. With everything else going on, you shouldn't have to worry about what a "reader" thinks about what you have to say. Just let it out when you can, and know there are so many shoulders to cry on. We all want to help, and sometimes listening is the only thing we can do. We all care about your family, and sometimes the only way to feel close to you all is through your beautiful words. Don't edit, or over-think it. Just let it out when you can.

Take care,
Sara

I think that the request for updates is just a desire to know how things are going...good or bad, those of us who are not with you worry about you and your family. Hearing how it went today lets us share in the challenges and successes (however small) of your journey. I never see your posts as "whining" rather your sharing of your thoughts and feelings.

I agree with a couple points.

First, update when you feel able. Your time with your wife and kids is far more important than updating here regardless of how much we all want to know what's going on.

Also, I always just desire to know how things are - good or bad - and if it's bad, that's okay - that's reality. It helps us know how to pray.

God bless.

Ecc. 3:1 at the top of your blog is a good reminder. This is a "season" you haven't walked through before. However you walk it, draw your strength from the only true Giver of strength and peace. He will reveal His purpose to you in His time. We love you. Your silence on the blog makes sense. The prayers won't stop.

Your family has dealt with so much in the past few years, I could never see what you share as whining. I think of you all and send good wishes your way.

There is so much about this life that we don't know - and don't understand. What we do know is that the Maker of heaven and earth is holding you in the palm of His hand.

As for whether or not you choose to blog from day to day....you need to do whatever it is that you need to do.

I have NEVER read anything that has been written in the spaces of your blog and felt that you were whining. My goodness...I can't even begin to imagine what it feels like to be in your shoes...with all that you and your family has endured throughout the time that I have known you.

Know that my prayers for you never cease! When you write, it helps me to pray more specifically...but honestly, God knows exactly what you need. On days when I have no words and only tears for you...He still hears the prayer of my heart.

Sending a long distance hug!

Praying...always...and still...

I agree with Sara...write when it helps you cope and never worry about it sounding like you are whining. I cannot begin to imagine what is like being in your shoes. I just want you to know that we are continuing to pray for all of you.
