Challenges ....


The past two weeks have been very challenging both mentally and spiritually. The past two weeks have taught our family how precious life really is. Russ, my step-dad has been diagnosed with metastatic Lung Cancer (Never smoked...). The cancer is stage 4. He will start brain radiation on Monday and chemo in two weeks.

Don't take any time with family or friends for granted. Russ is a hard worker, a fighter, patient, and a genuine giving soul. For those praying folks out there say a prayer for him.
