Stick Your Face in the Sun


I wanted to share the links to the stories of 2 dear women in my life. What they are going through makes my "crisis" with the washing machine and the stink in my closet seem like a visit to the county fair.

Eileen is the mother of 3 and wife to a former Olympic athlete. She is bravely fighting breast cancer. A quote from her recent post really resonates with me. Click here to read more of her story. And prepare to be blessed.
Be sure to STICK your face in the sun tomorrow, or the RAIN, doesn't really matter, as long as you BREATHE IN LIFE, it will be a good day! love, Eileen
Karen is the wife of our dear pastor. A few months ago she was laying in a coma with bacterial meningitis, not expected to live. She sums up her experience and what she has learned from it here. It's the August 4th journal entry.

Gives perspective. Definitely feeling blessed. Thanks for sharing.

As I read their stories (and cried), I was reminded of...

1. How selfish I can be
2. How grateful I should be

Thank you so much for sharing their stories - and kicking my rumpus back to "real" life. I'm going to try and remember their stories next time I complain about something trivial and unimportant.

Camie, it has been an amazing experience and privilege to stand alongside of these women. I think *we're* the ones who are being blessed.

They are so beautiful, gifted, loved, blessed and amazing women. We are so blessed to have them in our lives.
