~Happy Valentine's Day~

This girl is such a sweet dumpling! God placed her in our family and especially in my sister's life at the most perfect time. We are all so CRAZY about her and she is such a good baby.

I spent the better part of today helping Jan get things squared away to start on her new "Clinical Trial." The chemo will be paid for, but the other medications she will have to pay for. They are covered by insurance, but they are still quite expensive. It's sad that not only do you have to deal with cancer, but all the financial issues as well. So far, her insurance has done a good job. We feel blessed that she has not been stuck with a lot of out of pocket expenses to date.

Her church is organizing a benefit which includes a dinner, silent auction and bake sale this Saturday evening. My Mom and I have also been taking part in helping in this regard. We put together 8 or so baskets for the auction and we also been baking for the bake sale.

We had originally planned on going to the first support group since Jan's been back from M.D. Anderson, but since it was tonight, we decided to wait until next month.

The next few days will be busy with preparing for the benefit and spending time with friends and family. We have been overwhelmed by all the support and love that has been shown since Jan started this journey. God's people are good.

I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have love you, you also should love one another. John 12:34

~Feeling loved~
