My motto lately

"When you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot and hold on!!!"   ~Thomas Jefferson
(I am trying SO hard to hold on...)

"Hang tight; knuckles white!" It must be that you are such a master at searching out and counting your blessings that you are persevering so well! You have a spirit that is undaunted by such extreme conditions. It's mind-boggling! In all the suffering that continues you write with such clarity and preciseness. We keep hoping and pleading with the Lord that his guidance and care will be with all those who are earnestly doing all they can to help you to heal.

It's so hard for me to read your blog without having tears in my eyes. Hang tough girl. You amaze me, inspire me, and make me think about life as I never have. Your girls are blessed to have you as a mom. Know that we pray for you and think about you often. What a year you've had. You are almost through this...cancer free chick!

Why is it that when it rains it really pours sometimes? It just doesn't seem fair... but I suppose that life rarely does. We will be praying that it begins to at least lighten up for you so you can heal and take care of that sweet family you love so much!

I love you Shanda and your wonderful spirit. Am very sorry for continued trials. I spent Sat. with my sister in SLC who is friends with Lisa and we talked of you both and our admiration for your valiant fights. Know that you are loved and prayed for constantly. I too hope for brighter days ahead with your beautiful family! Love, Gloria

You might want to tie a couple of nots! I can't believe the crazy things that keep happening to you, but as crazy as they are I keep thinking - "no sign of cancer" and hopefully that is a small silver lining amid the rotten events. We are praying for you and hope that soon you will be pump free, home, and really healing!

Yesterday, I briefly chatted with a lady we used to live across the street from. She was just leaving Walmart: glowing with health and vitality, with a spring in her step! This lady is in her late 70's; a tiny whisp of a creature. When she was in her 50's through early 60's she struggled for her life and came close to losing it on several occasions. I vividly remember when she would come to church wearing dark glasses, moving very slowly and looking so ashen. "A walking miracle" I thought to myself yesterday; and that's what will be said of Shanda too!!!
