My faith has really been tested the last few months because of a heartbreaking situation occurring with a friend of mine. Her daughter has been battling a rare form of cancer and just when things were looking up, right before Thanksgiving they learned another tumor had formed, several actually. Yesterday, the family learned that the cancer has spread everywhere and have had to make the hardest decision any parent can ever have to make. They have arranged for hospice care and will try to enjoy what could be the last few weeks of her life (I hope Aubrey proves them wrong and holds on longer).
I cannot even begin to imagine what they are going through. I pray for them every night and I question why God lets this happen, especially to innocent children. But then I think that He has a bigger plan and we just don't know what that is. I know that God is taking care of me and He will continue to take care of Aubrey and her family. Please pray for them to have strength and get through this.
I hope you all are enjoying the new year so far (all 9.5 hours of it). Mine has been great, but most of it has been spent sleeping. What parent can't call that paradise.
Anyway, I wanted to let the blogging world know of my resolution. I usually don't make them, but I felt like I should this year. I resolve to participate in a 5K every month. Notice I said participate and not necessarily run. I am not a runner so I am sure that there will be lots of walking in the beginning. But maybe I will become a runner by the end of this.
My first one is at the end of the month. I am doing it with my aunt who started doing this stuff last year. I will keep you updated.
Bill and I are the proud parents of two girls. Meredith is our first and Tinsley was born in September. I work as the Coordinator of Student Life at Gainesville State College-Oconee Campus and Bill is currently Mr. Mom as his position at his job was eliminated. I am growing to love where we live more and more as we make our house more "ours" (Bill owned it before we married). We will have to move eventually as the family expands but it doesn't seem quite as necessary as it used to.
