Last weekend, several of my siblings came to be with her as she received her second round of chemo. She will have a PET scan Oct. 20th to show if the cancer is gone. If it is gone, they will do one more round of chemo. If it is not, they will finish chemo and begin radiation.
It is our privilege to sit beside her during this time. I wish I could accompany her to every blood draw, every scan, every consult, but right now God did not want that. She always tells us that our duties are at home and that makes her most happy. She is such a person of resolve. She sees God in EVERYONE. I mean EVERYONE. She listens to her doctors and accepts what they tell her to do-no questions. She knows God has a plan for her. She suffers so well.
She is my dearest of friends. I haved loved her my whole life. She asked me why I was taking pictures of her. I do want to remember this time with her, but more importantly I always take pictures of beautiful things I see. I SEE nothing but beauty.
John 15:13 "Greater love has no one than this, but to lay down his life for his friends."
