I received a comment here the other day from a person I didn’t recognize. I clicked through to visit the woman’s blog and found every parent’s nightmare, her daughter Serenity has been diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia. I have no words, just an enormous lump in my throat and an unrelenting desire to help.


I have no idea. I know my girls delight in receiving mail, so we’ll be sending a package of some sort, filled with frivolous things whose sole purpose is to bring joy. Would you do me a favor? Please? Go and visit Serenity’s site. Leave a comment for her parents.
Hug your children.
Swallow whatever complaint is dancing on the tip of your tongue and take several moments to just be grateful.
Grateful for your health.
Grateful for your family.

I’ll be posting something similar on The Wink.
