If you haven't, you need to. Have some tissues with you though.
It's kind of our anthem right now.
The house is quiet and friends and family have left and I have some time to myself. If you follow me on Twitter or friends with me on Facebook you know we just got home from a week away. Last Friday night we took my Mom's husband to the hospital. We didn't get good news. After a brain biopsy it was determined our Dad has a wide spread and rapid growing cancerous brain tumor and it's terminal and most likely only has a few weeks left with us. To say it's been an emotional week would be an understatement. Just when we think we can't cry anymore, fresh tears find their way to the surface.
As long as I'm on this side of Heaven there are some things I will never understand, but one thing I'm certain of is that God is faithful to the end. We would covet your prayers right now. Please pray for my family, my Mom, and specifically Larry, if you would like to call him out by name. They had 2.5 beautiful years together, just not long enough. Pray that the rest of the time they have together would be sweet and special. We are going to cherish the rest of the time we have with him, however long that may be. We have been in contact with Hospice and at this time it's about making him comfortable and his time left with us as enjoyable as possible. We have some things planned for him to make this time wonderful and want to mark some things off his bucket list. I have a feeling this is going to be a really neat and amazing time as a family and making memories we'll keep forever.
If there's one thing I've learned these past few days is that it's amazing how things that were once deemed important mean squat now.
When they got married they pledged to love each other in sickness and in health.

(Sorry I look like a hot mess. Just keeping it real. It's been a long and emotional week)
We're going to love him through it.
Of course we we are choosing and believing for a miracle. We realize it's a win/win situation and he'll be healed either way, whether it's on this earth or if God calls him home.
