Life has been a bit confusing and scary for our family over the past several months. My dear Dad was diagnosed with "sarcoma" of his leg in the last part of December, 2010. Treatment has included five surguries, chemotherapy and an end result of the amputation of that leg in May. There is NO way to describe the anquish that my heart has felt during the last few months. We have put our trust on our Heavenly Father who is in control and sees the big picture of all of our lives. "The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; and He knows those that trust in Him." (Nahum 1:7) My Dad, a wonderful man of God, is doing incredibly well... a true "HERO" in all of our lives. He is one of the bravest persons that I know...has a great attitude and an amazing determination. We are looking forward to better days ahead, and we are thanking God for His help so far! Trusting in Him to keep my dad in his perfect care! (He has a temporary prosthesis now and will be getting a permanent one in the future. I can envision him running marathons!) :) We have tried to pull together as a family, and the love that is there is such an amazing blessing. I have to add that my Mom is also a "HERO"...taking beautiful care of both my Dad and Grandma...She will always have my deepest love and respect for that. For those of you that have called or sent a card or text at just the right moment, said a prayer, given a hug...You will never know just how much it has meant! Thank you from our hearts.
Thought I would share a few pictures of some of the happier moments of the last few months... a Mother's Day tea, King's Island fun, random family pics and even some winter memories(brrrr...). Hope that YOU are having a WONDERFUL summer. Sending all of you lots of hugs and special blessings...
