But all I can think about is two of my friends who have been battling cancer. They have very different types of cancer, but they have both been very quiet and very humbling about the whole experience. One friend I have known since elementary school. She has 2 young children. She let many people know by a simple post on Facebook. I know she has the support of her family and nearby friends, as well as many like me who only know what she shares. The other I have known since I was 12. She lived down the street from me and I babysat her adorable children. Now those children have made her a grandmother. I also found out through Facebook. Both are strong women who will fight with everything. Both are humble and want God to be their rock.
You may be wondering how close a friend am I if I am just finding out about this on Facebook? I don’t know and I don’t really care. All I care about is the fact that these two wonderful women have been heavy on my heart these past few days.
So today, I will go through today thinking of these two along with others who are also struggling with bigger things than ear infections and bloody noses. My heart if filled with love and prayers for those who can’t call their moms anymore, for those who are raising children with Autism, for those struggling to get pregnant, for those who have to go before a judge for car problems, for those who just need to be reminded that life is not full of these things that get us down, but is full of blessings that can be counted.
Bless someone today by telling them you are thinking and praying for them.
Count your own blessings.
