I found a holiday newsletter in the mail pile on my parents' kitchen counter today and its last paragraph made me cry.
"This year I want to close by asking for your prayers for a few special people in my life who are all bearing heavy burdens with grace and dignity, but can certainly benefit from the uplifting power of prayer. Please pray for my dear, lifelong friend Rosemary Lambert and her family, who are using ALS to show the world how to love."
If you haven't already, you should visit my mom's blog. She's very incredible.
