Later on tonight, I hope to write about our May Crowning, but for now I am thinking about the woman at the center of our prayers and thoughts this afternoon. Heather, one of the coordinators of the recent Homeschool Blog Awards, is a thirty-two year old mother of three who has been diagnosed with a brain tumor. Tomorrow (Thursday, May 3rd), she will undergo surgery to remove the tumor and needs all of our prayers.
[If you have a web log, please consider asking your readers to "light a candle" for Heather by keeping her in prayer these next few days. I hope it will not seem silly, but I was thinking we might pass along this picture of a candle, including it within our posts and encouraging others to do so, a symbolic light to help shine through the terrible darkness she is facing.]
