Wednesday

I've struggled all day with how to write this next sentence, and there's just no good way to say it, so I'll just let it out. We found out today my sister has breast cancer. It is very tough news to hear, and I'm full of tears, but Becky is an amazing, strong woman, and somehow after talking to her I feel better. I should have been the one to comfort her, but instead, she comforted me. She will begin chemo in May and then have surgery once the chemo is over. I have faith that everything will be all right, and while this won't be easy for her, she will make it through. I am reminded over and over that God is good to us, and while we may not understand everything that happens in our lives, He is always there to walk with us.

I've scrapped this picture before of me and Becky, but came home from work early today and scrapped it again.

Blessings on Becky and all of you, Melissa. Breast cancer often has a very good prognonsis if it is caught early. God will give her the strength she needs.
