Wonderous...

I have been amazed and touched by one woman's post today. I find it difficult to put into words so perhaps you could go and take a look for yourselves. It is over here at The Word Cellar http://thewordcellar.blogspot.com/2008/02/jen-ballantyne-and-doctrine-of_19.html.

Just beautiful isn't it.

  9. Jen,
    I don't know you but I have to thank-you for this because you can't know how much you helped me unless I tell you. Reading this lifted a heavy burden for me, put it in a perspective at least. I can't thank-you enough.

  15. I also wander upon here from another blog.
    Your story is heart breaking but your bravery is astounding. I am a recent breast cancer survivor. I was lucky. My cancer was caught early and with a mastectomy I am cancer free. I can't imagine facing what you are. You will and your family will be in my prayers today and everyday to come.

  16. Yes, it was touching and special. And like many of the people who commented on that post said, I too will carry what I can of your burden of fear or whatever... I've just read your update after your visit to the oncologist, and really felt your dilemma about your Mum's offer to pay for the treatment. You're her child. I pray for you all for healing and strength.
