And for the record, CANCER I HATE YOU!!!!
She is having surgery and her doctors are confident that with the surgery and radiation they'll be able to remove all of it. Still the fact that she, a young mother of two young children, even has to go through this breaks my heart.
I trust there is a plan, and only He knows it, but all this cancer in our family is breaking my heart. I'm ready for everyone to be healthy again.
Anyway, tonight after dinner I wanted to do something fun with the kids while we talked about their Aunt Melissa and their Grandpa and what cancer was. They asked lots of questions and I tried to do my best to answer honestly without having them worry themselves sick.
The kids had what seemed like hundreds of old broken crayons and I remember my friend Denise telling me that you could melt them down in muffin pans to 'recycle' them. I'm pretty sure she found the idea on Pinterest (uhm, my new favorite site) and I thank her for sharing this great craft idea with me.
I had found this pan at the thrift store and decided it would be perfect to melt the crayons in.
The kids helped me peel all the wrappers off and break them up a bit more. I put them in a 250 degree oven for about 30 minutes and then I transferred them to the freezer for 20 minutes. I took them out, let them cool to room temperature and they popped right out.
And look how cute they are! The kids love them (okay, and I do too.)

It was a fun project and it was good to take our mind off of things, but my heart is still heavy.
I am, however, reminded of His promises.
Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have recieved it, and it will be yours. Mark 11:24
