Another one hit...

"I know God will not give me anything I can't handle. I just wish that He didn't trust me so much. " Mother Theresa.

I don't know if it is me getting older, or that cancer is just getting nastier and nastier. I went from only having having Grandparents affected, to knowing young, vibrant, close people in my life being affected. This is so not about me, but I am just in shock to see such wonderful amazing people affected.
I got to know Kelly through the internet from when our girls were just little things. Her Janelle and Lily are so similar that we just though when one girl gets dx the other will have the same results. We met twice. Once on their turf, Cali (they drove down and met us in Coronado one summer) and then they came to AZ for The Angels spring training. We had a parents night out and had probably too much wine! :) But we stay in touch via blogs, facebook and the occasional text message. Kelly has so much on her plate with raising an awesome family, sweet Janelle, big brother Jack and being a loving wife as well as managing a career. She doesn't have time for Leukemia and now she is at UCLA for a month getting treated. You never know why people get hit and so hard, but check out her blog. She is keeping her sense of humor and positive attitude that has helped her kick everything else butt that has tried to get her down.
Send her a comment, a card, keep her company as she knocks this cancer on its ass and get back home before Christmas.
Love ya Kelly!

I read Janelles site all the time. I was shocked when I read about Kelly. I am wishing her the best, cancer effects not only the patient but everyone around them.
