So much has happened in the last few weeks that I don't even know where to begin....
My youngest daughter graduated from high school! This is a miracle in itself! She is a delighful, sweet and God fearing young lady and my hero. She overcame many obstacles and recieved the pot of gold..her diploma! My mom, sister and nieces were here to witness this miracle. We had a party and many people came to rejoice in this miracle.
She is in California right now with my mom and sister..enjoying her vacation. We will figure out what to do when she comes back. College is not an option or a good fit for her, but I know that there will be many wonderful opportunties for her. We will have to be patient.
My husband has accepted a position in Saudi will be a 3 year contract. I'm not going, I haven't figured out how all of this will work, but this is what will make my husband happy. Me....I'll press on.....
My oldest daughter has cervical cancer; my heart is broken to pieces. We do not know how evasive/aggresive this thing has become. She has surgery on July 10th..the doctor will not know until after the lab results what stage it is in. She's only 22...can't explain my thoughts/feelings.
What does God have planned out of all this?

Getting closer

I'm not sure how I'm going to get through the next 2 weeks. I can't explain in words what this means to me..unless you have witnessed this miracle. Andee is graduating! We went to her Baacaulariette (spelling?) today. I kept choking up... and in my mind, I went down memory lane. Who would have thought this wonderful child would overcome huge obstacles to receive her diploma? Remember when the school wanted to "fail" her again in the 5th grade? I said, "over my dead body".....keeping her back would not "fix" her. She was performing above her ability..what more could anyone ask of her?
Andee is a hero and she isn't aware of it. Everyone who meets her keeps telling me she is a very special young lady. I smile, and say...I know,thank you. I know every mom thinks their child is special, but Andee truly is. She has overcame obstacles, and challenges to reach her goal. I wish I had just 1 tsp. of her will and determination.
