Her fight is over

Melanie and Kim's mom passed away. We are going to attend the funeral this Saturday. I brought them dinner on Sunday night, and they both looked so fragile and exhausted. I wanted to hug away all their pain. I know they are in for some hard days ahead. Keep them in your prayers.

Trevor and I have some friends that are going through some heartbreaking experiences. It has made me think a lot about my life and my love ones... you guys!

First of all our dear friends have been experiencing some really hard times in their marriage, and they are going through some sad and confusing feelings right now. Trev and I love these guys, we go out with them about 2 times a month, and they are such an awesome couple, so it has come as a surprise. The good thing, is Trev and I have been able to take some of our own experiences from the past and share them, which they have told us many times has been a pivotal part of them staying together and having a goal to work through this instead of ending in divorce. They are not members of our church, and it has given me some opportunity to share my beliefs with them because she has asked me time and again how I have been able to get through the trials in my life. I have been able to share with her my faith in God and the knowledge that he knows each of us and is there for us. I pray for them every day, and I have been reminded of how thankful I am for mom and dad for giving us such a wonderful example of how a husband/wife relationship should be. I am also thankful for Trevor. We have been through some amazing trials, and our love has prevailed...I am blessed.

Also, our dear friends, Kimi & Melanie (the 2 beautiful girls on the left) are losing their mother to cancer. They are so young. I check on their blogs daily to see how they are doing, and I am brought to tears each time I read. But what is beautiful is the faith of this family. They are as close a family as we are, and I can't help but feel their pain at this time. I am reminded every day how lucky we are to have Mom, Dad and each other here on this earth right now. Cherish each other! Love each other! I love all of you more than you know. I feel so blessed to be a part of this family. I am sorry if I take any of you for granted when getting caught up in the busy times in this life. But know that I am happiest when I am with any or all of you. Mom...how blessed I am to have you close. I can't imagine not being able to stop by or just pick up the phone and talk to you about anything, important or not. I can't imagine life without any of you, but like this sweet family, the gospel gives me peace and hope.
How blessed we are!
