  1. thank you for sharing about being selfless in ministering to your mother. It is an amazing experience you are having, and I am glad that you are cognizant of it while the amazing is happening. I pray for strength and endurance for you, and for continued reliance upon God!

  2. I had the privilege of taking care of my Mother from the time of her diagnosis of esophageal cancer until she went home to be with the Lord. It was a fast three months.
    I felt just like you…it was an honor.
    Thank you for sharing your story with us.

  3. Emily, thank you for gracing our pages with your loveliness through color and words. Your post is breathtaking, simple, true, real…all the way to the heart.

  4. My heart is aching right now. I don’t have cancer but I do have a daughter who has turned her back on her entire family (and I fear God as well) to live with a man we’ve never met and is now expecting our first grandchild. I have looked forward to granchildren for years and now that’s it’s happening I am completely left out. I hope it doesn’t take a tragic illness to bring us back together and would appreciate your prayers for healing and reconciliation. Blessings, Julie

  5. dearest Julie… i am praying. my heart hurts with yours. Lord, you’ve done wonders in my relationship with my mother–you’ve mended, and made new. do the same for Julie and her daughter. make things whole. in Jesus’ name…

  6. I have lived through something very similar with my dad who also had brain cancer. Every day the last year of his life was a special memory that I kept reminding myself in the moment to burn into my memory for all time. Saying a prayer for you!

  7. thank you, Tara… thank you, everyone for allowing me this space on your blog. may God’s grace soothe and heal the broken places of your hearts. in him, emily.
