Leap Year and Bad News

It is leap year. That means that this month will have an extra day, and Grandma Selma (Rick's grandmother) will have her "real" birthday. She was born on February 29, 1912. In just a few days this sweet woman will be 96 years old. She has been an active inspiration to many people including her family. Though she weighs only 73 pounds, she is a true matriarch by every definition of the word

Today we learned she has cancer. We are still in that "vacuum" where you have to let bad news sink in before you can start to cope. Your prayers are appreciated. I invite you to remember her especially on her special day.

Five generations of which I am so proud.
