While the Cat's Away...

This is the week that I'm taking HB#1 to DC/NYC with his school. Well, the old school. Anyway, apparently Old Man Winter decided that we needed to stress a little because it looks like the DC area will be getting 4-8 inches of snow between now and tomorrow evening. Send up a prayer that our flights are not effected and we are able to arrive as planned. We will be doing ev.ry.thing. All by noon on Thursday, then heading up to NYC. I'm so excited about both cities. I've been to both but there are things that we'll be doing that I've never done.

It's been a rough few weeks around here. Some close friends of ours found out at the end of February that their 11 year old son has cancer. My heart is broken. We're still in shock, I think, but doing our best to be available to the family to help in whatever capacity that they need. So many in our community have already stepped in to fill in the gaps with meals, rides for their other children, etc., the outpouring of support has been almost overwhelming. And the outpouring has certainly been beautiful. It's going to be a long haul, as the treatment plan is for about 12 months. While I'm away, would you please pray for my friend Ann, her son Peter, and their family? He finished his first round of chemo yesterday and is expected home later this afternoon.

Ann reads here if you would like to leave a message of support for her, Peter, and the family in the comments.

The blogging community is so supportive-I'm counting on you all to fill the gap this week while I'm gone!

Have a wonderful trip in DC/NYC. So much profound history there. You have already done so much for us. You are the hardest working, take charge kind of gal I've ever known!! Please enjoy this insane trip! You'll have memories for a lifetime. Praying for travel mercies. Love you!

Prayers for Peter, his doctors and Ann, their family, I have always loved that when Jesus's mother and brother were outside waiting for him, he reminded those around Him that they too were His mother and brother. God places us exactly where we are supposed to be to fill the roles we are supposed to fill so His work may be done and through it that He might be glorified. Prayers for you, your trip, your heart and your peace.

In Him, Kelly
