Prayerful Thoughts

This picture was taken back in June, at Dylan's birthday party, the day before I went into labor with Addie. It's one of my favorite pictures because this was a really special day for our family and I loved that Kathy was a part of it with us. Our family was on the cusp of so much change and she was there for us. She always has been.

Tomorrow this dear friend of ours starts chemo treatment. The past couple weeks I haven't written here because I didn't know how to put into words what has been going on. She's such a special part of our lives. When I got the call that she was in the ER, in pain, I panicked. I couldn't fix it for her. And when she had surgery the next morning, I worried and agonized over the pending pathology reports till I felt sick. But I knew that my role was to be her friend, love her and pray for her. And then when the results finally came back, we learned that the cancer hadn't spread any further. And while I know she has a lot ahead of her, I want to remind myself daily that my role in this is to be her friend. To encourage her. To love her. To pray for her. And to trust.
And that is what I plan to do.
