Change--In an Instant
Last week, I posted about the house that has really been calling to me, the one I thought I wanted more than any other house for my family.
This week it hardly seems important.
Wednesday night, my friend Rebecca White told her friends and family she has breast cancer. She's 35, like me. She has a young family, like I do. She does these awesome crafts and home schools her kids. She even beads necklaces.
Friday she had a mastectomy. Yesterday, they removed the bandages.
I'm bleeding inside. I feel like I've dodged a cosmic bullet. This could just as easily have been me. I've had grandparents with cancer, but nothing has hit me so hard as this. Becky's young, she has her whole life ahead of her, and I want to do everything I possibly can to help ensure she can enjoy it.
Click HERE to find out what I'm doing and how you can help. It's just my other blog, but there's a lot of information there I want to share with you.
It's not logical or practical to just install myself in her house so I can hug her all the time. But I want to be there for her any way I can. Becky is a generous, loving, caring person, but at this time in her life she needs all the angels she can get.
You can help. Be one of her angels.
Thanks for listening.
