A Difficult Monday

I received some hard news last night. My 2nd grade teacher, who is one of the most loving women I have known over my short life and has been a great family friend, is losing her life to cancer. I don't have a lot of details, but I have been told it's not going to be long. We'll see how it goes but I may not be visiting blogs or even blogging for a bit. I don't know what your beliefs are and I'm not one to shove my beliefs on anyone, but I'm sharing a favorite hymn of mine that I think is fitting.




Lyrics:
Precious Lord, take my hand
Lead me on, let me stand
I am tired, I am weak, I am worn
Through the storm, through the night
Lead me on to the light
Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home
When my way grows drear
Precious Lord linger near
When my life is almost gone
Hear my cry, hear my call
Hold my hand lest I fall
Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home
When the darkness appears
And the night draws near
And the day is past and gone
At the river I stand
Guide my feet, hold my hand
Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home

  1. Hang in there. I won't push my beliefs on you or anyone else except to say I'll keep you in my prayers.

  3. Sorry to hear the bad news. It speaks to her character (and yours) that her life touched you enough to still hold a special place in your heart for her all these years. Hugs to you!

  4. Thanks everyone. It means a lot to me. I'll be doing a full write up someday on her because being she's so much more than my 2nd grade teacher. She's been a wonderful family friend who's been there for a lot of the special moments in our lives.
