What I'm Afraid Of...EDITED

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.


  1. I'm so sorry to hear that. They will all be in my prayers.

  2. I can't even imagine........
    Thinking of them.

  3. I'm so sorry to hear that. I will keep this family in my prayers.

  4. Oh, no.... I'm so sad to hear that Connie. I will keep them in my prayers.


  5. That is my biggest fear as well. I will be thinking about your friend and her little boy.

  6. That's so scary. It's unbelieveable how quickly things can go from normal to heartbreaking. I will be praying for them!

  7. Me too. Terrified! Beyond words. I stopped by. Poor hearts!!

  8. When I take my son in for his check ups for developement at the hospital he was born at which is about 2 hrs away I see all these sick children and it makes my heart hurt.

    I get the fear you feel because it is in the back of my mind daily since Logan was so many respitory problems when he was born he's still at that age that something could set him back since he was so premature. Ecspecially that stupid h1n1 flu thing.

    Your friends will be in my thoughts and prayers.

  9. I don't know Beth, but what sad news. I'll keep the family in my thoughts and prayers. Makes me count my blessings... and it preys on my fears...


I love you. You are my best friend! Your hair looks fantastic today!
