Pretty in Pink

My sister-in-law Emily e-mailed me this photo--and I had to share it!

I've had two weeks on the chemo pills and almost two weeks off. I'm on an off week, but haven't felt too good yet. Today was the best so far, but the evening was yucky again. It's the yucky/nauseous feeling like when you're pregnant--only I'm not throwing up--I just feel a constant yuck. I've had a little back pain as well. None of this is really horrible, just the thought that this is the rest of my life possibly (I'm still waiting for the cure!). It helps to stay busy and not think about me. There's always worse things. Best to look at the positive. I am grateful for every day that I'm still here.

Last night I was reminded by a friend of one of many amazing moments I've had while dealing with this cancer. The more I thought about it, I realized I've had numerous incredible experiences that have left no doubt in my mind that God lives and cares about me (and you too!). So even though sometimes I might get a little fearful or feel a little (or even a lot) yucky-- I know that everything will be okay because God is watching over me and will take care of me and my family.

Hey Jenn! Bryan came over to my parents house today and I just HAPPENED to be there painting - it was so good to see him and hear about the fam. We hope and pray things are going well for you. Miss you and love you! Noelle

That picture is the cutest thing that I have ever seen. I'm going to have to send it to my mom. Let us know if you need anything or need to get out for a while. We love to go to lunch!
