Please keep my mom in your thoughts and prayers
Hi everyone, I wanted to let you know that my Mom will be having surgery tomorrow. At the age of 67 she is pretty healthy but unfortunately has been diagnosed with stage 3 cancer.
My life has been completely on hold and while I will not offer any explanations or excuses for why I've missed some writing deadlines--I'm sure you can piece it together. I know that you here on my blog do not require apologies for the interruptions of 'life'. In actuality, it is always you that remind me how much 'life happens'.
I think you guys for your patience and for coming back here to check in on me. Thank you for not writing that you don't like me anymore because I make people wait too long for stories. Thank you for realizing that sometimes there are very good reasons for everything.
Now I know that I am not the only one facing sacrifices right now and my heart goes out to anyone who is suffering loss or trying to get through some bad life situations. Believe me, my prayers are with you. Please add to your prayers my Uncle RJ who passed away last night and his immediate family who are not taking the news well at all. My friend E whose mom has been given 1week to live, Sheila whose Mom has just been placed in hospice, S who has just lost a family member last week and...so many more that I know who are facing loss.
