Time for an update says my mom. So here it is. I have had the second round of chemo. I will be receiving my third round this coming Friday. Then a few weeks after that it is time for a scan. My numbers went up but less then 10 that is good news. I have only had 2 small easy to handle side effects. I haven't lost my hair yet and I have been able to keep up with my family and their activities.

Just a couple of months ago I was asked to speak in church and a few weeks ago I was ask to speak at a fireside. For those of you who don't know what that is it is a mtg where people gather at the church to listen to a speaker and to be taught or strengthened in the Doctrines of the church. I have been working on that for the last few weeks. I will be giving this talk on Sunday. Anyway through preparing for these two talks I have been reminded of the blessings and miracles that have occur ed in my life. I can't say I love to get up a speak but I do love the chance I have had to learn, study and be thankful for all the blessings I have received in the last three years. I know that with out my faith in my Heavenly Father and in his son Jesus Christ that I would not be here. Thank you so much to those who have blessed me and my family with your service and your comments and words.

Your talk was amazing a very touching. I loved looking back and seeing all the blessings and Miracles in your life. Heavenly Father really has blessed you with a stronger testimony of Christ, from the trials of your journey. Dad and I are so glad we could be there with you. Hugs, Mom

Life is a long day's journey into light. It is filled with joy and sorrow, laughter and tears, all of which are a part of the journey home.
