burdens

Molly is doing great
but this week has been day after day of bad news in other areas
one of my best girlfriends lost her mom who had been battling cancer for several years 
her funeral is saturday
i can't imagine her feelings of loss and sadness
but we KNOW where her mom is right now
and that makes me smile


my mom had left 3 voice mails on my phone by 630 a.m. today
never a good sign
she had wounded her leg in the shower and was bleeding profusely!
she didn't know what else to do so she was calling everyone to try and get help
the joys of living alone...nobody to help when you need them!
somehow she cut a blood vessel in her leg and she lost a lot of blood
molly and i rushed over to her house and it looked like a scene right out of friday the 13th! 
blood is/was everywhere!  it took forever for it to stop bleeding
her heart was pounding so hard she thought someone was pounding on the door!
added to the stress of loosing blood was the fear that 10 little kids were about to come to daycare for the day
in about 10 minutes time my granny (always a lifesaver) had called all the parents and told them daycare was closed because ms. dyeanne was "bleeding profusely" (it sounds funny now, but she really was!)
we took her to the dr. and they stitched it up so hopefully it will stop the bleeding

one of my cousins was diagnosed with breast cancer today
i haven't even talked with her, but i never like to hear the "C" word
who does?
she's going to be fine
she is strong and brave
but gearing up for the fight ahead is the tough part


and finally a dear friend of the family died today who had also been battling cancer
the whole family is just a great bunch of people and i'm sad for their loss
but like my friend's mom, we KNOW where he is right now too
and that makes me smile

so i ask you to pray for the burdens my friends and family are carrying right now
and perhaps they will feel it and be renewed again.


but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint
Isaiah 40:31

I'm sorry Amy. I have had times like that as well. Within 3 months I lost a mother-in-law, nephew, and uncle. Praying you can join your church family tomorrow for a time of Worship and renewal. I can't think of a better way to get refreshed than spending time in fellowship and worship with those of like faith!
