Today was a great day, in part. I went to the Holiday party my (old) work put on and I got to visit with some great co-workers and thank people for their contributions to our family trust fund, they raised a lot of money for us and we were able, with all total donations from everyone who gave, pay for all of my daughters medical bills as well as her memorial costs. It was a HUGE relief. Since I know some of them read this blog THANK YOU again! Then right as it was ending I won a $100 gift card! I was so giddy the rest of the night.
After the party I went to my church for a candy making class which was great.. such yummy food! But then end of the class was very sad. A friend from church has a little girl who was just diagnosed with a VERY aggressive cancer. She'd had emergency surgery on Thanksgiving to remove some tumors and they just received the call tonight on the biopsy. They have to start treatment right away. My heart breaks for this family. FOr those of you who are in my ward that didn't get an email for phone call, we are having a special fast on Sunday even though it's Stake Conference.
My hopes and prayers are with this family and the road that lies ahead. It's so hard not know ing HEavenly Fathers plan and just trusting in it when tragedy strikes within your family. Somedays, some moments, knowing that he loves us and looks out for His children and will carry them and us home just isn't enough, but with His help we can get thru it.
