As many of you know, my Mom has been fighting breast cancer since last fall. She underwent surgery in October and has been receiving chemotherapy ever since. In her usual style she has dealt with it all gracefully, though she has had her share of tough moments. Right before Christmas all of her hair fell out. Here she is wearing one of her new hats. She has just finished her first round of chemo and will start the next in two weeks. I never thought she would have to deal with this or that I would have to learn about this or join this club, this “family” of people who have fought or are fighting cancer. Still, in spite of her own trials, Mom still continues to be Mom and her concern is for her children. She continues to watch over all of us. I asked Mom if it would be okay to post her picture and she said yes, so, here’s to my Mom, the one person on earth who has shown me, and many others, God’s Unconditional Love. May He now shower her with Grace and mercy, because we still need her here.
