I have been thinking about my mom quit a bit the lately. Just a few short weeks ago, we found out she has cancer. Worse news came last week when we found out it had spread. Her kidneys are dialysis now, since they can not function any longer with out it. The things she has gone through the last few weeks would have been enough for me to throw in the towel, but not her. She is a fighter! She keeps telling us she wants to see her grand kids grow up, so she is going to fight as hard as she can.
Everything has happened so quickly I cant even describe the sorrow I have felt lately. I know many people have felt the same pain and know what my family is going through. Anyone that knows my mom will agree that is she the sweetest person to ever grace this planet. Anyone that can raise 7 kids that absolutely adore her and would walk through fire for her is a saint in my book:)
When My mom found out the news that the cancer has spread she said two things “I’ll miss swimming with the grand kids” and “But I haven’t finished making Paisley and Denim their blankies” Then she started crying. She crochets these adorable blankets for all the grandkids and she is in the middle of making Paisley and her cousin one and has not been able to finish. For years she has been making beanies, burp clothes, and blankets that she donates to hospitals for babies that are less fortunate. My mom is someone who gets life. There are few people who really get life. My mom has always been there to comfort us when we are struggling, because she has been through it all. She has so much compassion. I love her so much, and I hate to see her suffer so terribly. I just pray that she will find comfort and peace. Im not sure what the future holds for my mom at this point. Cancer treatment is not an option right now, because of her weak state. I have faith. I have hope.
My mom is a HERO to me and to many. She is so humble and I have always seen Christ in her eyes. I love her to pieces and want to shout it out to the world:). She is the BEST:)!!!
