Psalm 126:5 “Those who sow in tears will reap with shouts of joy” HCSB
On September 15, 2010 my life was forever changed. My husband Adam, who was only 32, was diagnosed with a rare and very aggressive form of sinus cancer. We had been married for almost 10 years and have 3 beautiful children. We spent 9 months with doctors, surgeons and specialists trying to beat this horrid disease. Adam fought a valiant fight. I watched day after day as his body succumbed to the cancer and he could no longer fight. On June 27, 2011 I lost the love of my life and my children lost their father. He left behind parents, siblings, inl laws, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews. I will never be the same. None of us will. I think of him everyday. I see him in our children and I feel him in my heart.
I want to take the time this year to encourage others to love those they have in their lives right now. In this moment. Tomorrow could be too late. Time is a gift and life is fleeting. We don’t always have tomorrow. Lives can change in an instant. Make sure the ones you love don’t go a day without hearing you say it or show it.
Challenge for today: January 1, 2013
Tell someone in your life that you love them. It can be a spouse, a parent, children, grandparents or even just a friend. I assure you that someone needs to hear it.
I love you, Laurel! 🙂
You are one amazing woman! I love you and pray for you daily! God bless you!
