Writings of a teachermom, choosing to stay home with her kids, while loathing all domestic responsibilities! In late Aug. 2008, I was diagnosed with Triple Negative breast cancer. After surgery, chemo and radiation, I was given theall clear. However, in the late summer of 2008, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor, which metasticized to other areas.

chemo chemo chemo

So much has been going on here.

My mother in law is here, so that has been nice.

I started a new chemo today. And will have another kind each day next week.

I was able to see Harry Potter with my husband yesterday. Cameron was mad that we wouldn't let him see it. But it's really not for his age...at least I don't think so.

My mom will be leaving for a couple weeks. She needs the break but we will miss her.


1 Peter 4-11

Farher, I pray that their family members love one another

That they are hospitable to one another without complaint

Serving by the strength that You supply.

So that in all things You may be glorified

Continually praying for you and your family.

I love this Psalm - it shows how God goes to work right away when we pray, even if we don't see results immediately. Here's an excerpt - the whole thing is just awesome!

Psalm 18

1I will love thee, O LORD, my strength.

2The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

3I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.

4The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodly men made me afraid.

5The sorrows of hell compassed me about: the snares of death prevented me.

6In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears.

Love & hugs!!!

Make memories w/ your kids...don't sweat the small stuff as they say! That movie wouldn't have been bad for a kid his age. Prayers for you.

Keep going girl - I check in often but sometimes not sure what more to say. You are inspirational - as are your husband and your mom - what a family should be!

Glad you saw Potter - I will await the DVD release but am determined to watch the earlier ones.

Keep your eyes on Jesus - the Shepherd - who is carrying you close to His heart sweet girl!

ISAIAH 40:11 [NIV]

He tends His flock like a Shepherd:
He gathers the lambs in His arms
and carries them close to His heart;
He gently leads those that have young.

Love you... Stephanie
[JESUS - the One I EXTOL]

I've been away from home for a while, so I haven't been able to check in as much, but I continue to pray for you and your family daily. I know you'll miss your mom. I wish we were in Ocean City to see her, but unfortunately we're going to miss her whole visit.
Love and prayers,
Bernice Adair

It was a beautiful day in Philly today. I sat in the pool with my daughter and took a long moment to say a prayer for you.

I pray you are well.

I think about you every day. It worries me when we go more than a few days without hearing from you.
We worry about the chemo with its side effects.

Looking forward to a post, soon!
