Day 5-Tuff but up

I am sorry my post have been short. I have been resting a lot. It is just a slow process. I did drag myself up today and made pancakes for the girls and myself. I homeschooled the girls this morning without any help too! I have been missing them. By the time we were done I was tired. It is amazing how powerful chemo is. I have been reading my emails, texts and comments. I am blown away. What a wonderful place and wonderful people that are serving. Thank you so much for all your praying. There are so many things that I want to say but I am not strong enough yet. I just want you to know that I am believing.

Thanks Mike, Mom and my inlaws for caring for me without any questions. Thanks for loving the girls. I am very lucky. Thanks to all my blog friends...someday I want to tell you how you have changed my life forever.

I have all the request for bracelets. They are being made. Canada too:)

The girls and I came up with an idea. It has to do with ornaments on our tree. If you would like to make an ornament with your name and/or blog info. It would be a reminder for my girls that you are a part of our lives to celebrate every year. It would be beautiful to see your love on our tree. Peace and love coming your way.

In His Arms

So glad you were up a bit today - even able to homeschool! Each day has its own gifts. Just wanted you to know I was thinking about you! Praying, too.

WOW - you made pancakes for the girls and homeschooled - WOW!!! You amaze me! God is working and answering and giving you strength.

I think the ornament idea is beautiful. I know you have my e-mail. When you feel well enough, if you send me your address, I'll try and get something off, but guessing that coming from Canada you may not get it until the new year!

Love & continued prayers,

Celebrating His strength in you over breakfast this morning. We've opted for waffles this morning, but we'll be having pancakes for dinner!

Thinking and praying for you--He's more powerful than your chemo, don't forget that, OK? He's working in you!!

We all know that God has not promised freedom from trials and troubles in this life. Annie Johnson Flint said it this way:

“God hath not promised skies always blue,
Flower-strewn pathways all our lives through;
God hath not promised sun without rain,
Joy without sorrow, peace without pain.”
Then she lists other things which God has not promised, and concludes with,

“BUT God hath promised strength for the day,
Rest for the labor, light for the way,
Grace for the trials, help from above,
Unfailing sympathy, undying love.”
Thinking about ya and praying for you. Hugs, Gayla

How funny you talk of an ornament for your tree, Monday I sent one in a card for you. You will have to write my name on the back. Hope it brings you comfort and joy.

You truly are an amazing women, mom, wife, daughter. I love the way you always strive to serve others.
