I've been MIA…

Sorry about that.  We got some pretty harsh news three weeks ago and I’ve sort of withdrawn.

From everyone…and everything.

I have chosen to draw closer to my Lord, my Jesus.

I needed to.

My Dad was diagnosed December 2nd with Stage 4 Colon Cancer (incurable, and inoperable).

This is a tough pill to swallow.

He started chemo last week.

This is a roller coaster ride to say the least, and I know we are in for twists and turns, ups and downs that we can not even begin to image.

If it seems like I’m overly absent, this is probably why.

I plan to go once a month for my Dad’s chemo.  He lives in another state and he is currently scheduled for treatment every 14 days.

I’m trying to understand how the Lord wants me to adjust the navigation of our lives with this new piece.

I am unsure.

However, my confidence is in the Lord, Who is holding me and my family up safely in the palm of His hand.  I am resting in the knowledge that my Lord has a perfect plan in place.  My responsibility, and I do it gladly, is to trust in Him.

This is not my family’s first dance with a cancer patient in the family.

My Mother-in-law had cancer.  She gracefully lost her battle almost 16 years ago.

I am blessed to have a wonderful support network in place.  An amazing husband who knows exactly how I am feeling and what I am going through.

An awesome brother of whom I am so grateful to have in my life.  Thankful that the Lord stepped in both our lives, lifted us up out of miry clay, and healed our relationship.

My “sister” who has known me, and my family, my whole life.

My sister-in-law (and also one of my besties) of whom I have battled with, cried with, laughed with and been sad with and of course, have been sassy with. 🙂

My Mom…thanks Mom!

There are more, but these are my core and I am so blessed and thankful.

But I am blessed and thankful for all of you too.
