No easy way to say it

IMG_0387Mom, Vera, me, and Geri last summer

“All the days ordained for me 
were written in your book
       before one of them came to be.”

I’ve heard my mom quote this verse many times, and I thought that she believed it.  Now I know that she does.

The last couple weeks have been rough ones.  After a mammogram, ultra-sound mammogram, and biopsy, she was finally told on Friday that she does indeed have breast cancer.  Tough words to digest.

Mom has been strong and courageous through the whole process.  It’s easy to see that she is filled with a supernatural peace.  And I’m thankful for the example she is to me. 

I am so sad and at times, pretty emotional, but I also believe that all of our days are ordained and written in a book.  There is comfort and hope in that!

I love you, Mom.
