Trial

These past three days have changed my life forever.  I never imagined how it would feel when someone you loved would come to me and say, "Leslie, I have cancer."  I never imagined seeing the people I love so deeply sad, scared, but brave.  In these past two days, I've felt more pain, more love, more peace, more gratitude, and more faith than I think I ever have.  My sister and bosom friend Kennedy is engaged to another wonderful friend of mine, Kyle.  Monday, they found out that he has cancer.  We are waiting to find out more information and see what we will be doing to fight it.  I'm so proud of them and love them so dearly.  We will pull through this and I know that as we rely on the Lord, He will support us and give us strength.
