TT: Mom

It’s Tuesday Week here at the Purple Moose Tracks, in honor of the Tuesday blog party.

This week I am thankful for Tuesday’s mom, Jessica Kate.

I spent some time last night reading through her blog postings.  She wrote a lot after Tuesday was diagnosed with neuroblastoma.  But she actually started blogging months before that.

As I read through her blog for the second time, I was amazed and impressed all over again with her faith, her courage, and her strength.  I think these qualities are what caused me to start frequenting “Go Blog Yourself” back in August when I first heard about Tuesday and her family.

“Faith” doesn’t mean that we won’t have questions, but that we trust God anyway, even when we don’t understand what’s happening.

“Courage” doesn’t mean that we won’t be afraid, but that we will push on and persevere despite the fear.

“Strength” doesn’t mean that we won’t feel weak, but that we will do what needs to be done even when we feel the weakest.

And that all comes through loud and clear in her blog.  You have inspired me, Jessica Kate, and I am so glad that you have shared this journey with us and allowed us to pray for your family throughout these past several months.
