Today we celebrate the birth of Rebilou, who turns 30. Granted, we’re also celebrating the birth of a nation, but for as long as I can remember, the fireworks meant Bec was blowing out another candle. Happy birthday to la Rebecca!
Additionally, I heard this week a different friend has gone into remission, showing the wicked cancer who’s boss. I couldn’t be happier for J, knowing plenty more good fortune is headed her way. She’s handled the last year with such incredible grace and spirit. I have no idea how she’s made chemo seem fashionable, but she is just that sort. We are all so, so relieved her health is on the rebound.
On the other side of the coin, a girlfriend contacted me yesterday about Kate McRae. She’s a Phoenix sweetheart who is currently at Phoenix Children’s Hospital. She had a brain tumor removed yesterday. Her folks attend Velda Rose United Methodist and are asking for prayer. If you don’t mind, I’m certain they’d appreciate your thoughts and well wishes.
Next July 4th, may we have our dancing shoes on, celebrating Kate’s recovery too!
