I have worked for a wonderful local charity that offers help to families in need. Most of these families are battling cancer, the worst 6 letter nastiest I know. One family had a four year old with cancer. A precious, beautiful little girl. This little girl just celebrated her 1st year treatment free! This little girl has an amazingly strong Mother who never stopped fighting for her and never forgot that she had two more little ones at home that needed her. She defines strength. She defines courage. Although I am not able to call her "friend" I know her. She knows me.
One year before Peyton was diagnosed with cancer Anissa suffered a stroke. She recovered. One year after Peyton was healed she has suffered another stroke. This time much more severe. Things have looked very bad but through what I believe to be the power of prayer they are starting to look a little better. You can here and here to read more about Anissa and by clicking on the button below you can help this family in need.
The past 24 hours have left me wondering why. Why would God do this to this precious family? Haven't they already suffered enough? WHY?
As I look at my daughters tonight I can't help but to wonder. Wonder, if I knew that this was the last time they would see me alive what would I do different? What would I say different? What would I want them to remember about me? WHAT?
My questions for today are simply...
Some things we will never fully understand...this is one of them!
