I had every intention of writing a lighthearted post for today. Maybe a What I'm Loving Wednesday, or a So What Wednesday or even a Oh How Pinteresting Wednesday. All of those are great and I was excited to participate in the best linky day of the week.
However, I opened my reader this morning to the news that little Lucy Krull, whose Momma writes one of my favorite blogs, just found out that her cancer is back and there is nothing more the doctors can do for her.
My eyes immediatly welled up with tears and I spent some time at my desk just praying for Lucy and the Krull family. God laid her older sister, Ella, especially on my heart. She is a big sister, just like I am and she is about to lose her best friend and little sister. Ella is only a few years older than Lucy and I know this is going to be the most difficult time of her life.
Ella and Lucy
I found the Krull family through another blog and when I found out that Lucy was spending some of her time at St. Jude, I immediatly started following. If you don't know already, I have a huge passion for St. Jude. I am a Tridelta, and St. Jude is our philanthropy. Through that, I got to know a little boy named Nick and he changed my life forever. You can read about that here.
If you're the praying type, I want to ask you to say a prayer or two for the Krull family. Pray that Lucy finds peace in knowing she is going straight into the arms of Jesus. Pray for Ella, and for their little brother Jack. Pray for Erik and Kate as they lose their baby girl. I know I will be.
Have a good day y'all. And squeeze your family and friends a little tighter today.
