Of course the last few days friends have been asking if we are prepared for chemo. Do we have freezer meals, is the house ready and so on. C turned 8 at the end of March. At that time I was pregnant with Baby and worried about how I would support my husband and the kids while taking care of Baby. This was very pressing on my mind. To prepare for that time I made a bunch of freezer meals. I shared my concerns with the children and we made a plan to finish all of L's Faith In God up to the 11 year old section (Preparing for Young Women), finish C's Bobcat and Wolf, and some Faith In God, and make freezer meals. They helped me accomplish those goals this summer.

Then we had Baby and while the newborn time is difficult, we did not need very many freezer meals. While were in the newborn time we found out we had cancer again. Those freezer meals gained new importance. Cub Scouts and Activity Days are just fun activities for the kids as they have no pressure currently to finish anything. Those preparations we made in the summer which we thought were for the newborn time, have made it easier to take things slowly during this time.


  1. What a tender blessing Baby has been for you guys!

  2. I've been thinking and praying for you all day today. May the Lord bless you with the strength and courage you all need to endure this trial.

  3. I am daily inspired in my little hardships as I see how you endure yours. Thanks for sharing on this blog. Many are reading it and sharing this burden along with you, praying to help make it lighter. I hope today is better than yesterday.
