...my cousin's darling daughter.
Last week she was diagnosed with leukemia.
And it's hit me hard to think how quickly life can change. To go in one day from trying to swim through the often molasses-like mundane-ness of every day life to being thrown into a new world where blood transfusions and chemotherapy are thrust forcefully into your every day life. They will become as common-place as a trip to the park or baking a batch of chocolate chip cookies. Suddenly you are in an alternate universe where worry seeps into every inch of your body as your heart can't seem to stop aching for your baby.
It makes me want to hold tight to the gift of each day that is "normal." And to cling to the love and encouragement from Above that becomes so plentiful if we let it when we are in a dark, deep trial.
I believe in the power of prayer.
And Cami and her family could use some of that power sent their way as they begin their battle.

I love you guys!
