Today we are attending the funeral of a wonderful woman who was taken from this life much too early. I know that God doesn't make mistakes and that He has a perfect plan but it sure is hard to watch a mom of 6 kids slowly lose her battle with brain cancer.
As hard as it is for those left behind to see her go; she is so much better off. She is healed - she can see clearly, dance, sing, and even skip along heaven's roads. She is complete with no more pain. Betsy will be greatly missed by her family, her friends, and her church.
Recently, I've had two other acquaintances from college who have lost their wives to various illness' - one to a stroke that took her unexpectedly and another to a year long battle with cancer. It has made me stop and think what I need to do to make sure that my family . . .my husband and my boys . . can carry on. Both of these men have mentioned how they had no idea what their wife did on a daily basis until she was gone and have been overwhelmed with all they did not know. This has impacted me and I want to make sure to leave a legacy in many ways. I'll post more about that later but for today, we will remember Betsy as we celebrate her life with so many friends and family.
