I don't know if any of you keep up with Amy Wilhoite's blog. She is a phenomenal young wife and mother who has been in a fight for her life. Anyway, she was given news today that her leukemia is in remission. She still needs prayer for continued healing and of course, prayer that the cancer will not return, but for her intitial report after her bone marrow transplant, this is great news.
Also, my dear friend Debbie from college is also in remission after her battle with breast cancer this past year. She is currently undergoing reconstructive surgery after a double mastectomy, and she just had her final surgery this past week. She's doing wonderfully. Her hair is growing back, and she looks wonderful. She too is a young wife and mom and it's been amazing following her journey through the many emails she's shared with her friends and family.
I looked at my post from yesterday and suddenly it seemed so incredibly ridiculous. A rant about being slightly inconvenienced at Costco? I mean, really. In light of these two women...their courage, their faith, and their strength...what in the world does that post have to do with anything that means ANYTHING? These phenomenal moms deserve a post in my blog, not to mention their husbands and children who have had a very difficult 2006 and who are embarking upon a very hopeful 2007. This, my dear friends, is why I blog....not to rant about Costco!
