Tuesday, Too Soon


If you read many blogs, you've probably seen this already. If not, here it is. There is a little girl named Tuesday, and you can read her story here. She is only two years old. The same age as my son.

Tuesday is dying. She was diagnosed with cancer last summer, and her family just found out that it's too advanced, it's not responding to treatment. It was time to take Tuesday home to be with her family in her final days.

Two is too soon. No one should be having their final days at two. No mother should watch her toddler fade away. It's almost too painful to write.

So as I sit here with tears streaming down my face for Tuesday, I will pray for the only thing I can. Comfort for her family. Comfort and love for her in her final days.

And I will be thankful for what I have.

Please pray for Tuesday.

My prayers also go to this family. And may I appreciate more what I have been given.

Thanks for posting this, Rachael. I hadn't heard about her. I'll be sure to pray for her and her family. I can't imagine how hard that must be.

Figures. I didn't read the story first. I see they'll be celebrating her sweet life next weekend. Surprisingly, they live not terribly far from us. I will still pray for the family. They'll have quite the road ahead.

Thanks again and God bless!
