"I don't have a very large extended family. Some may think it is, but in reality, it's truly not. I have a few aunts, a few uncles and a few cousins. Most live in different states and many times, communication is sparse. But we are all bonded, in an unspoken way. When one of us is in need, we all speak up and rally.
My cousin Kim lives in North Carolina. I have not seen her in "real life" in many years. Maybe the last time was my wedding ? ! But we keep up on each others lives via Facebook. When she recently visited my mom, I was able to see her via Facetime.... Love technology for that....
Over the years I've seen her be the most amazing mother to her two girls. She has been their mom, their friend and their biggest supporter. Kim has a love of baking and would share pictures of her amazing cakes with us on Facebook. She is just an all around amazing person with a huge faith in God.
Well, Kim has cancer. C-a-n-c-e-r.. she is in surgery now to remove her kidney and get more answers on what type, what extent and what the next course is. From my experience, cancer attacks at the most unexpected times. It doesn't warn it's coming, it just becomes present.
I am praying for Kim today. "
|Kim and I in 1979... wasn't she beautiful? She still looked exactly the same all these years later. I love you Kim !|
