This one's for YOU K-girl! Dawn, Mimi and I want your blog to wear it proudly! You deserve it!
For those of you who read my blog (or Dawn's or Mimi's) then you have been blessed with another wonderful woman.
The amazing story that has unfolded over the last 4 months has brought tears to my eyes dozens of times. I posted "our story" a while back but feel free to refresh your memory, if you like.
One of our collective readers, who we all know as the QUEEN OF STORY TIME! Kendra, took it upon herself to make sure the three of us (Dawn, Mimi and myself) met... in Chicago... at the OPRAH SHOW!! Now, that is above and beyond in my book.
Little did we all know that only weeks before our date on Oprah, Kendra would suddenly fall ill with what turned out to be a brain tumor. Kendra underwent emergency brain surgery and was STILL thinking of others as he opted (was not directed by a Dr. to do so) to shave her head. She then donated her waist-length hair to LOCKS OF LOVE!
Even though she has been going through DAILY radiation treatments, she was emailing us everyday leading up to our big trip to meet last week! Every day!
Only having been home from the hospital a few days she IMd me to check in and see HOW I WAS DOING! "ME?! How am I doing?" But we only talked for a minute or two because she was having her story time kids over for the afternoon. Once again, she was thinking of those little people who missed hearing her stories, not herself!
If anyone reading this has the means to make a miracle happen, to bless someone in an outrageous way...this woman is the one to bless! She has been a blessing (and an inspiration) to thousand and thousand of people for a lifetime!
For those of you who are believers in the POWER OF PRAYER (as you should be!) Kendra's radiations are from 2:10 - 2:15 daily (Pacific time) - please pray and add her "DIE CANCER DIE" mantra to your words!
Kendra even opted for TWO radiations in one day so she would be sure to make it to her grand daughter's high school graduation. NOW THERE IS UNCONDITIONAL LOVE!
I have been urging Kendra to write a book about her life, her "collections" of children in her home and out, her faith, her passion for books, her love for others, her artistic talents, her life's struggles and now her battle with cancer. I see NY BEST SELLER!
