Yesterday our friend Katie dropped by with dinner. Eli and Jerrell grabbed her by the hand and pulled her outside to show Katie their newly expanded fort. I listened as Eli told Katie (in a way that only a 3 year old can) "My mommie is sick and she is going to die. But then she will get to go to Heaven and be with Jesus and she will get a new body." As hard as it is for me to hear this and think about the realities of it…I know that it is true. And I am comforted and encouraged that my boys know that this is true. There will be grieving and sadness, but we also have hope. We take comfort knowing that Kristi will be home. A home where there is no pain, no suffering, no tears and no cancer. I hope that this comforts those of you reading this blog as well.
pray as Kristi has been battling lots of nausea the last 24 hours.
