The W Family Chronicles

Prayers for an old friend.

Posted on: April 3, 2007

In high school, I was involved in a great church. The youth group was really active and we had a choir that toured the country each year and sang at other churches. One of the people who was also involved in these activities was Katie. She was a beautiful person, inside and out, a friend to everyone.

Katie was diagnosed with leukemia last summer, right around the time C was born. She has put up quite a fight but modern medicine has been unable to cure the cancer. She’s had an army of people praying for her, but God must need her more than we do. She’s now on comfort measures only and is waiting for Him to bring her home.

She’s faced this with a lot of dignity and grace. You can read about her journey here. Stories like this make me question my faith and at the same time, make it stronger. If I didn’t make myself believe that God had a plan, I think the sadness would overwhelm me. Please send up a prayer for her pain to ease soon. And also include your family in your prayers…having the first hand knowledge that I do, they’ll need them. I hate cancer. It is one of the ugliest things on this earth and I wish nobody had to deal with it. 😦

W Family Players

D is the dad, the husband, and the breadwinner. All around nice guy and good at pretty much everything he does. It's disgusting, really. But makes him worth keeping around.

M is the mom, the wife, and the hopeless housekeeper. At least the kids' heads haven't fallen off yet. Beyond that, she sucks at the "stay at home" thing. Oh, and she's the blogger.

J is the big boy. Born October 11 2002, he is in kindergarten and loves it. Now 6 years old, and too smart for his own good. Talks a lot but extremely entertaining.

C is the little boy. Born June 26, 2006, he went through a lot in his first year but is doing just fine now. The only blond in the family, so his paternity is routinely questioned by rude strangers.

V is our baby girl. She is brand new and arrived in January 2009. So far everything is going well. We're thrilled to have added the final piece to our family puzzle. And yes, she WILL be the final piece!
