My sweet friend, Barb was diagnosed with breast cancer this fall. She and I have a lot in common, we're both the same age, in fact, we are only a few days apart, we both have little girls, in fact, our kids are about the same age, too. I feel helpless as to how to help her. She lives on the other side of the country and so the only thing I can offer is lots and lots of prayers, and encouragement. But, she is a fighter! She is strong! She just shaved her head, and we are all praying, praying, praying as hard as we can for her.

So, after thinking about cancer all day, and thinking about the premature death of sweet baby Afton, I stumbled upon this video and found it rather fitting. It talks about death. That death isn't the end. Through the grace of God and our loving Redeemer, life continues after this mortal life.
I feel so blessed that I have a testimony of eternal families. I know we will see those who have passed on before us again. Death, though it's scary and all sorts of freaky, is not the end.
If a man die, shall he live again? To all within the sound of my voice i declare "he shall live again!"
PS: this post is dedicated to Maelynn, the sweet, always-speaks-her-mind, super woman who lost her battle in January. I know we'll see her again someday.
