Not a very good day today

Today wasn't a very good day (apart from Bianca losing her tooth, that was pretty exciting).

Today I watched the most beautiful photo montage that Kyah's mum did. It's been 6 months since beautiful little Kyah passed away. And so I sat there with tears streaming down my cheeks. It feels so incredibly unfair that they have to walk this road. I don't know if I would be allowed to share the link of this montage, but just know that it was beautifully done. and incredibly moving. Please keep Shanell, Jason and the boys in your prayers so that they may find comfort and strength to walk this road that must be the hardest thing ever. And please visit this fundraising site that Shanell and 3 other mums set up to try and raise money for the Child Cancer Foundation.

And then barely an hour after that, I got a call from a very good friend whose son also has cancer. He has had a rough journey so far and today they found out he relapsed. It is so incredibly heartbreaking, so unfair... My heart goes out to them and I so wish there was something I could do. Whilst I can't share too much of their details at the moment, I do want to ask you to keep them in your prayers and in your thoughts.

I really hate cancer. I hate what it does to families. I hate how it puts kids through so much. It is such an exhausting, devastating thing. I really feel down tonight. Cancer really sucks!!!

But cancer is limited too, no matter how hard it strikes:

Cancer is so limited...
It cannot cripple love.
It cannot shatter hope.
It cannot corrode faith.
It cannot eat away peace.
It cannot destroy confidence.
It cannot kill friendship.
It cannot shut out memories.
It cannot silence courage.
It cannot reduce eternal life.
It cannot quench the Spirit.

Thinking of you and all those whose lives have been stung by cancer. I pray for a cure so one day families can live in peace. I live in hope.
