The peace after hard work

by | Jul 30, 2021

This morning I woke up to this photo. To me it resembles peace and relaxation after a hard day of work. Peace in God’s beautiful wonder of nature without distractions, just the comfort of being in the presence of others.

Last weekend Luke left Philadelphia to travel to New Mexico for 9 days of hiking with his friends from Boy Scouts. They are at what is called a High Adventure Camp called Philmont Scout Reserve. While there they will get to experience God’s wonders while putting in a lot of effort and work to climb up to a maximum distance of 9 miles with elevations over 1000. After each day of hard work, they will get met with the peace and satisfaction of completing something hard but getting to relax and relish in their accomplishments every evening.

I will start treatment next week and will carry this photo with me. I am prepared for there to be hard days, some really hard days, but I am looking forward to God’s peace in the comfort of friends who will travel this journey with me. I am blessed to have such a caring and supportive network of family and friends.

Many of you have asked how you can help. For now , the best way is to surround me with your love and support. I love being around people and know that will help get me through this. Feel free to write, call or just stop by. You will not be imposing and I will draw from your strength.

Have a great weekend friends!!!
