Then life does this.

It's been a really hard few days.  My little sister Lydia was just diagnosed with colon cancer.  The family is in a tail spin.  They did surgery today.  I pray they got it all.  Chemo will start soon.  I can't wrap my head around it and my heart is shattered. 

I want to ask for prayers, love and well wishes for her.  I'm going to encourage her to blog her experience as she fights. She is strong. She will fight. 
I can't fight this one for her no matter how my heart longs to.  My body is already twisted and broken, she shouldn't have to fight this, I want to take the pain and fear for her. It wouldn't matter if it was me. I'm already a mess.

I love her.  We all do.  I cannot imagine what her husband is feeling, nor can I imagine what it is going to be like to tell her two little children. I pray for strength and peace for them.

I did this for her tonight.
When the time comes and the chemo takes her hair, I will shave my head too.  I will hold her hand. I will hold Rachel's hand too.  There are three of us girls.  There always will be. 

Cancer thought it could destroy her.  I believe it was wrong.



  1. Sending positive thoughts and hugs to you and your family. You are strong women!


  2. Thank you so much. I've shared a video to put a face to her name. Please share it. I want to bring awareness to her fight. Put a face to her name. Thank you for your love and support. She thanks you too.
