When we lived in the house on the hill, a plaque sat on a side table in our living room. I have to admit I didn’t think much of what it said–only that I hated dusting around it–because Mom wouldn’t let me dust around it. She made me pick it up and dust under it.
The “decorative” item read: “Some people come into our lives and quietly go. Others stay a while and leave footprints on our hearts and we are never quite the same.” After my father passed away, that plaque meant everything–in two sentences.
And this week, it took on a new meaning–for my mom. On March 27, 2012, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. It quickly became evident just how many lives my mother has touched. And so the “blogging” begins. We’ve searched through plenty of decorator and food blogs, but we’ve never created something so personal.
Please pray for our family as we embark on this journey. Please pray for the doctors who will help heal Mom’s body.
