    Spending an afternoon with my sisters baking Christmas cookies was a great way for us to enjoy each other’s company and slow down during the busy holidays.

    My husband went home to be with the Lord in 2011, three months after being diagnosed with cancer..He, too, was the recipient of a quilt made lovingly by some church ladies. What a gift!

    I have been diagnosed with two life threatening illnesses and I myself received a quilt for prayer. I find that when I feel like I’m all alone, I look at it and am reminded of how many people love and pray for me everyday!

    Many people helped me as I journeyed through the early stages of Breast Cancer. Family and friends wrapped their arms around me in prayer. I think of all those before and after who beat cancer and won their race. I pray for all those whose loved one left too soon because of cancer. They will never be forgotten.

    I recently visited a former student who is spending his life in prison. A few days after the visit I had a letter from him telling me how much it has meant to him that I have kept in touch with him over quite a number of years. It feels so good to know you can bring joy to a person in such difficult circumstances and to have that person show appreciation. Even in prison, people need friends and I’m glad I can be that friend to this person.

    My baby brother lost his battle with small cell lung cancer on september 19 2013 and he had a quilt that comforted him as well. But the most wonderful thing about my brother Bob he fought and kept the most positive attitude I have ever seen up to the last day. He made his family so proud and I hope when my day comes I can be like he was. The strongest and most loving person ever. I love you brother.

    On December 21st, me and my friends have decided to distribute hugs through the streets of Lisbon in Portugal, just before Christmas. It was our Christmas gift to the persons that we found in the street! This is a photo of a very good friend of mine, taken by a stranger, that have posted it on facebook on the next day! :) The card says “Free Hugs” in portuguese! And it was a lovely saturday morning… :) To repeat in the near future!

    My daughter, Jennifer was killed in a double-fatal car accident 21 years ago. I opened an angel shop in her memory, A PLACE FOR US. I sang at children’s funerals (a first) and at weddings. I gave motivational talks on HOPE just telling the story of Jennifer, her life, her death and the legacy she left…and how I dealt with her death. This has brought me to a wonderful ministry to those who are suffering the loss of a child – it is different, difficult and life-changing. I chose to be BETTER because I got to be her earthly mother for 19 years.
    I made a good choice!!
    Recently, our brother Danny went home to Heaven. We are never ready to see them go.
    Three years ago our precious Mother, Elna, age 94 – left us for Heaven.
    Each of these deaths (and lives) challenge us to…BE BETTER, NOT BITTER.

    In May 2010 my wife was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer with bone met. I have watched her fight for life and enjoy what time we have together. In December 2012 her pet scan showed cancer in her legs, hips, back, shoulders and arms. It also was in her bone marrow which caused her to have 4 blood transfusions last year because of it. Today thanks to many prayers and a great staff at her doctors over 80% of her cancer is gone. She will never be free but her recovery is a miracle.
