I have had a hard time gathering my thoughts around the news that I am about to share, but I know I must to ask you to please pray. Writing it out makes it seem all the more real, and frankly it is something that I very badly do not want to believe is true. Last week I got a phone call,  it was my oldest sister, Jolene, on the other line and she asked if it was a good time. She said that she had bad news and asked if I was able to talk.

On our phone call I discovered that my sister has been diagnosed with a rare and aggressive cancer. I didn’t know what to say, I couldn’t believe it. I didn’t want to believe it. This couldn’t be happening to her.

I think as a family we are all still in shock, but we know that we need to stick together, be present and positive throughout every step. There are a lot of unknowns, but what we do know is that she is not going to fight this battle alone. I also know that we have a God that is good and a God that heals. When you think of her, please pray.

Some prayers that have been on my heart:

• The ability to be positive. Asking God to show peace and surround Jolene with positive people and positive thoughts. Our minds can easily wander, we can hear negative things, I ask that there is no dwelling on the negative but through each step recognizing the positive.

• Appointments to be schedule. This past week and a bit has been a lot of waiting, we pray that appointments will line up and that the people that are on the other end of the appointments are pleasant and helpful for each following step.

• Complete Healing. The type of cancer that was found is not easily treatable. I believe fully that our God heals and I pray for a complete healing over Jolene.

If any of you have positive words or prayers that you would like to directly share with my sister, please email them to me [creativewifeandjoyfulworker@gmail.com] and I would gladly pass them on to her. We appreciate your prayers and support at this time. Thank you.

We took a trip on @bcferries today (Sophie discovered it does in fact have food and chairs! Which she announced by yelling to everyone on board 🤦🏼‍♀️) and we are now relaxing for the night at @sunriseridgeresort with a glass of @xoxowines in hand. #extralonglongweekend
  • Everyday feels like Mother's Day when it starts with sunshine, pastries and hot espresso. My mother's day was filled with lots of love, fun in the sun, delicious @nespresso.ca and locally made fresh pastries. Ezra made me the sweetest card that read:
M - Marvellous Mom
O - Outrageously awesome
M - Makes Life Better
... I can't even with that last line, talk about heart melt.
