Just a quick message to all of my blog readers.  I would like to thank you for all of your kind words of love and support.  We read each and every message that you post, and even though it is not possible to reply to every comment, please know that we gather strength and take great comfort from you.  I know that all the prayers you offer in my behalf are heard, and you will never know how much they help me and my family. 
    Tonight as I am so worried for my Pet-CT scan, Dan was reading me your comments as I rest.   I have felt so much peace and comfort.  As you are prompted to share your thoughts and experiences, please know that your words are truly inspired, and are usually just what I need to help me.  So as many of you say that I inspire you, I want you to know that all of you inspire me, you help my faith, and help me find the strength to carry on.  To those of you who have also shared your personal experiences to help me, I thank you so much.  You will never know the comfort that your words and messages bring to both me and Dan. 
    I know that Heavenly Father answers our prayers, as well as some of our secret worries and longings through other people, and I don't doubt for a moment that He works through all of you to share stories that answer questions or worries that I have.  I thank you all from the bottom of my heart. Thank you for sharing our journey with us.  We could never make it without you.  Thank you, and God bless you all!!!!!

Dear Amber,
As I was going through Chloe's treasures, I came across the beanie that you crocheted her as a newborn. My heart swelled with love as I stopped and remembered the love and service you have always shown towards me and my family. You are in my thoughts and prayers constantly... I love hearing the words from your heart. You are a real person with REAL feelings, fears, hopes, and dreams. I pray that you may feel the spirit of our Heavenly Father as you continue to go through some of these earthly trials. I Love You and thank You for being the person that you are.... Hugs and kisses to each one of you...

Dear Amber,
I'm so sorry you have to go through all this. My heart just breaks for you and I wish somehow I could help. It's so hard to understand why we have to go through these earthly trials, but I know that Heavenly Father has a wonderful plan that someday we'll all understand and it will all be worth it. I've stuggled with trials that I sure didn't understand why they had to happen. Sixteen years ago today my precious baby Jace went to live in heaven and I didn't handle it very well. You have truly helped me to handle my trials by seeing the amazing way you are dealing with yours. I love to read about all your true feelings whether good or bad. You are such an amazing person and I'm so grateful to have you for my neighbor -- and your darling kids. You are always in my thoughts and prayers. Always know that I am right next door if you ever need ANYTHING, even if you just need chocolate! Love Ya! Lori

Amber,
Scott and I were talking about how challenges can make ordinary people great. You have surely become great. You are not losing your battle with cancer. Even if you lose your life, your spark has caught on and ignited so many people's hearts and lives, your fire will burn forever. You can not be claimed by any disease. I know you sometimes think you are not strong, and I know I can't fully understand how hard cancer has been for you, but you admitting your struggles, and sharing them so that everyone can learn and grow shows enormous strength.

When the Savior was teaching and Martha was "encumbered" about by much serving and wanted the Savior to make Mary help her serve, he told her that Mary had chosen the good part. I think women often try to do the "Martha" thing, and cook and clean and help everyone else, but we often forget the good part, the very best, most inspiring, important things--and you have chosen that good part, and continually remind me how important it is to nurture our spirits, our relationships, and the things that we can take with us.

So thankyou for being "Mary" and not "Martha". Thanks for fighting even though you are tired of fighting. I love you so much more as I've watched you rise to the "occasion". To me, you are amazing.

This is some wisdom that I came across and wanted to share.

Youth Gems - 20 January 2009
Adversity
MonsonTS_96_rgb.jpg

Mortality is a period of testing, a time to prove ourselves worthy to return to the presence of our Heavenly Father. In order to be tested, we must sometimes face challenges and difficulties. At times there appears to be no light at the tunnel’s end—no dawn to break the night’s darkness. We feel surrounded by the pain of broken hearts, the disappointment of shattered dreams, and the despair of vanished hopes. We join in uttering the biblical plea “Is there no balm in Gilead?”6 We are inclined to view our own personal misfortunes through the distorted prism of pessimism. We feel abandoned, heartbroken, alone. If you find yourself in such a situation, I plead with you to turn to our Heavenly Father in faith. He will lift you and guide you. He will not always take your afflictions from you, but He will comfort and lead you with love through whatever storm you face.

Thomas S. Monson, “Looking Back and Moving Forward,” Ensign, May 2008, 87–90
