You know those email quizzes that ask you a bunch of questions like what is your favorite color and where is your cell phone? The questions are mostly regular everyday stuff but sometimes they contain a question that I don't like to answer.
What are you afraid of?
I usually try to go for the obvious like spiders, snakes and Donald Trump. But really, what I'm the most afraid of is something happening to my kids. I pray every single day that they will be safe and healthy. Calvin and I talk about it often, since his family lost his brother at a young age. He says that for a long time he didn't want to have kids because he was afraid of someday losing them. I'm so glad he changed his mind.
I saw a tweet from my new blogging friend Beth at Manic Mother a few days ago that she was at the hospital waiting on blood test results for her 2 year old son. He had been bitten by a venomous spider a few days before so I thought it was related to that.
I checked her blog this morning and discovered that her baby has been diagnosed with Childhood Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. He is starting chemo today.
Please say a prayer for Ezra. And keep Beth in your thoughts....let's lift her up today and give her the strength to get through this.
Beth has posted more details about their situation....and it's not good. They need financial help. If you have a couple dollars to spare...please help this family. Go HERE and look for her paypal button.
