I read and see stories every day about struggles and survival. They're all over the news, and every single one I hear touches me in some way. These stories stick with me. I think about the people -- people I don't even know most times -- and I pray for them.
A story ran on people.com in the beginning of July that I can't stop thinking about. It's about a woman who's pregnant and living with an inoperable brain tumor.
You can find the article here.
This woman -- Jessica -- isn't letting this tumor just take her. As soon as she delivers her third child, she will start radiation and chemotherapy in an effort to shrink it. She is taking advantage of every day she has on this earth and isn't just "accepting." I encourage you to read her story.
So today I'm thankful that we have people like Jessica who choose to fight... who choose to survive... who choose to live.
I'll be back soon with the last part of my BlogHer adventure, but, for today, I hope you can remember what you're thankful for as well.
