For those who don't know yet, we got some great news about my dear friend Steph. You can check my other blog for the whole story but the condensed version....the tumor is SHRINKING! We found out on Monday that it is only 30-40% of the original size. We are all REALLY excited and praising God for his amazing work. I will have to say that I have learned so much through this whole process. I can't begin to list everything in one post. The one thing that has touched my heart in a big way is my dear sweet Claire. If you are close to me, you know that Claire and I have had some "issues" over the past few weeks. She is testing me and I have been so afraid that I am failing. After some very wise counsel from my "go to girls" (Mom, Connie & my Bible study girls) and some venting to my future sister-in-law I began to feel a little better. But today, Claire reminded me in her own subtle little way that I need not worry so much. She has a kind heart and that is what matters. She heard me say something about Drew and Levi and immediately perked up. She said, "OH, NANNY! Steph has good news! God hears my prayers!" For those who don't know, she has been praying faithfully for Steph. When asked why she says...and I quote, "because she has cancer and has to go to chemo." It's not something that we have told her to say. I simply tell her that we need to pray for Steph so she will get better. She has picked the rest up from just listening. (What an eye opener that was!!) I was so touched and so very proud of my little girl. I sometimes worry that cancer is too big and scary for such a young girl...and maybe it is. But it is a HUGE lesson for all of us. NOTHING IS TOO BIG FOR GOD! Bottom line, it's something that is happening to our family and I am thankful that Claire knows that the Lord will carry us through this. I thank the Lord for my daughter and all of the lessons she is teaching me!
Sooo, now that I have posted 3 times today, I must go to bed! I have to get up in the morning and get the kids to my mom so I can get a PEDICURE!!!! It's a treat from my momma that I have been looking forward to for weeks now! Thanks mom!!!
