Family...

We are in Michigan on vacation with the girls. We came up for Chris's cousin Melissa"s weddin & what a great time we have had. The wedding was yesterday & one of my closest friends/sister in law Tracy did all of the florals. Theres just one word to describe this girl, terriffic!!! She"s seriously such a precious friend to me, and we joke that the reason we married the boys is because God knew we both needed a sister & would truely love and appreaciate eachother! I can get on the phone with her and by the time I get off (serious hours later, thank goodness we are both on the same network!) tears are streaming down my face ( hers too) from just laughing so hard..... She just inspires and encourages me so much. I have other friends who are dear to me, & precious for so many different reasons, Tracy's friendship just simply fills a real need in my life, the need to just be loved on and love w/ out expectations- just because, made even more special becasue shes family!! She did the most wonderful job on this wedding, we were all blown away! The bride Melissa looked seriously radiant! She and the groom have known eachother since they rode the school bus together in grade school...It was very special and we are really honored to have been a part of it. The reception eneded @ the hall around midnight, but went well into the next day @ the after party @ the home of the bride's parents ( suprisingly, a few of whom stayed were of an older pursuasion (my inlaws age even!, You go gang!) Another important reason for our trip home is because my precious mother in law has recently been diagnosed with breast cancer. Shes just starting her chemo and has to go every thursday to the U of M and get her treatments. Shes holding her own, & we are all really encouraged with her prognosis-Please join our family in praying for Diane, we all know that nothing but nothing changes things like prayer does! We leave tomorrow for our 14 hr trip home, & we are leaving 3 of the girls w/ my inlaws(per my mil's request) they will bring them home

I'm so glad you enjoyed your vacation. You sister-in-law does sound truly special.

Sorry to hear about your MIL. My mom was diagnosed with BC in 06 and doing really well today. I pray your MIL does just as well. :)
