So it's no surprise that an invite to the newest Splash Pad with some cute grandkids just made my day!
So Much Fun!
And after all that fun, we piled into the car and stopped at the nearest Starbucks for cake pops and Frappuccino's (if there was a Dairy Queen closer it might have been ice cream and Blizzards, just saying!)...
But that Vanilla Bean Frappuccino was the perfect closer to a morning in the sun.
And in a blink, I was reminded that Pancreatic Cancer rages on.
The headlines blare the news that the former CEO of Starbucks has lost his battle with the disease. Pancreatic cancer continues to devastate lives...
While we enjoy the sweet treats at our local Starbucks, Orin Smith leaves behind a family that will miss him every day... Every. Single. Day.
For so many the only notice the newspapers give them will be the obligatory obituary for the grieving family.
And the heart hurts...
For each one touched by this cancer.
Praying Grace and Strength and Hope over the hurt and the loss... sometimes there are just no words to wrap up the sadness into a pretty ending.
Walking out this pancreatic cancer journey with the grit and determination born out of a promise that we never walk alone...
"This is My command: be strong and courageous. Never be afraid or discouraged because I am your God, the Eternal One, and I will remain with you wherever you go."
