For You created my inmost being, you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalms 139 13-14
It doesn't matter if your child is unborn, 3 years old, 28 years old or 40 years old, a mother's love will always be forever.
I have this scripture on my desk at work and when I read it this week many emotions ran through my head. One imparticularly is about my sister, Markley. Markley is 40 years old and was recently diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer. Breast cancer is very dominant in our family being that my grandmother, my mother, and now my sister have dealt with this demon. My mother was 33 when she had breast cancer and again at 53. The second time she had a double mastectomy and is now cancer free.
Markley has started chemo and will continue to have three more rounds. She will then have a double mastectomy. Markley is a fighter and will fight this cancer and win. She has wonderful support and a family that loves her very much. I will continue to update on my sister's progress.
On another note, sorry readers!! I have been so behind in my journals. The pace has definitely started to pick up. Claire is very active and I am starting to guess what is poking at my belly. Is that a foot? Or is that her hands? The jabbing has begun! I am also in the process of getting the nursery together. My wonderful mother-in-law is going to paint the nursery during Thanksgiving holidays while we are out of town. I am ready to get the room decorated!!
I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow. It's the big one, sonogram and all. Since I am a week behind on my journals I will write soon.
