I'd like to ask for prayer for my poor friend, Shelly. Her husband passed away suddenly yesterday morning. The day after Christmas. He was truly the love of her life. She has a baby girl, 3 year old twin boys and a 14 year old daughter. And she is now on her own with those sweet kids.
What began as a blood clot this summer, turned into a tumor, he began chemo, the tumors shrank, they celebrated when he came home from the hospital last week, God gave him all day on Christmas with his family, then Shelly found him unresponsive yesterday morning. And now he is with the Lord.
If you know Shelly or feel lead to help in some way (Dan had been out of work for months due to being in and out of the hospital, so they need lots of help financially, with groceries, diapers, anything will help) please email me at ktksu(at)cox(dot)net.
Whenever I was having a rough day with Mike or the kids or began a pity party about our situation, I thought of Shelly. Her family's circumstances put things into perspective for me so often and I hope this can somehow help you appreciate all that you have, too.
Seriously...go hug your husband. Just because he's alive and with you right now.
