Sweet Times

Dear Friends,
I have taken a breather from journaling the past couple of weeks. The break came not because things have been hard but because life has been so sweet. Our Christmas was one of the most joyful days I can remember! We had so much to celebrate...Jesus, clear scans, cancer-free bone marrow biopsies, and LIFE!!!

Our precious baby girl is getting back to her "normal" self. She has started back to school which is thrilling to her. Her body is quite tired though and we are trying to give her breaks whenever possible. She has enjoyed what most 5 year old enjoy- painting, playing outside, enjoying friends, and spending time with her new puppy, Hershey.

I am thankful that we had so many bad days because it just makes the sweet days so much more amazing! I don't seem to take the good days for granted like I did in the past. I have so enjoyed watching Ansley put on her school uniform, put on her backpack, and run up to her friends. It does a momma's heart good to see her child filled with joy...

Countless thanks for the hours you have prayed and thought about our family. We are in a season of rejoicing! Next scans and biopsies will be in March.

Blessings, friends!
