I don't know if it just seems to be happening more or if I'm just more aware of it because I have kids, but it seems like I'm hearing so many stories about young children and cancer lately. Cancer absolutely terrifies me. These stories terrify me. They completely break my heart and I find myself crying for people I've never met and never will. I grieve for them like their child is my own. Children that are the age of mine. Children that have not even gotten a chance to live their lives yet. Oh how it scares me. Dear God, I am so thankful for the health of my family and am sending so many prayers to these families that are affected. Sometimes I think I take way too much for granted. I'm totally going to work on that!

****I am grateful for
1) T-Ball tryouts are over and Chase had fun
2) Emery's surgery going smoothly, because I know it will
3) no ear infections in the last two weeks!
4) my healthy family
5) prayers for those that I don't even know

P.S. Emery's tube surgery was canceled due to the severe weather conditions last Friday, she has been rescheduled for this Thursday, as in day after tomorrow. Send prayers please, I know it's minor and what to expect, but it still scares me. :o(

Good luck tomorrow! I am sure everything will be just fine, but as mothers, it is our prerogative to worry.

I haven't heard many stories of children with cancer. Maybe you should move up here. Then we could be friends and hang out. :)
