Thank you for patience..

Thank you for you patience...

I just completed last night my chemo cycle. I ended up skipping the Saturday evening pills minus the Zofran due to the headache induced naseau. I have just been tired today. Not sure if you will be reading a school update from me. The more I try to compile the story the more it doesn't make sense or flow well for the blog. I also type slow still . Sorry for those of you who want to know...

I really appreciated the comment someone wrote the other day.

"Praying for a day of peace and contentment in God's faithfulness in your lives as you and all your family deal with struggles most of us can't really know. Wishing your boys great school days and love and patience on the homefront for all of you."

I am thankful for all of you who have prayed for me and the family in the past. I am continually being reminded that this world is full of brokeness/sin. People are hurting and need Jesus. I don't know how people can go through trials without HIM.

It has been an adjustment for me to have the boys back in school. Lots of things to complete on the homefront. It seems like little time. Chemo brain/body may have something to do with it.

I, too, am thankful for the people who pray for you and who show up faithfully on this "comment" section b/c they love you, love the boys, love Dave, and are committed to supporting you. LOVED the school pictures...all grown UP, aren't they? And a CUTE CUTE CUTE trio, too. The Snodgrass progeny are FABulous! Our whirlwind of school meet-and-greet's w/ teachers and administration starts next week...then actual classes after that. I'll be in YOUR boat soon...minus the chemo, nausea, and headaches. The commenter who wrote @ struggles that none of us really "know" was right... You experience ALL of the joys, triumphs, struggles, and challenges of motherhood and marriage as we do. You cook, clean, organize, carpool, and shop as we do. But you have this other THING in your life that we do not. My shoulders slumped thinking @ the heavy load...but it IS a load we are willing to help you carry AND a load that God is ABLE, "more than able" to bear. You're right, DO people get through stuff like this alone and without Him? In your corner watching (but not spooky-like) and praying (really really hard) for you! Hugs tonight! Laura J

Kate- I continue to lift you up to the Lord, for His strength to fill you, His love to sustain you , His mercy to be poured out over you, and for each day to bring JOY to your heart- He is so faithful....What a big job it is to be a mom, wife, friend, even a blogger! When I am home next week, I would love to help you in any tangible way I can! ( Remember, I am a Villa Cleaner here in Italia! ) I am praying for you and your family, Kate- Love in Him, Jen (Italia)
