I started this blog in July, 2009, when my husband, Keith, was diagnosed with cancer.  I actually began writing in order to just allow our church members to have a place to go to keep up with his progress and treatment.

As the months progressed, I shared the funny and tragic things that happen when you are in the midst of a cancer battle, and heard from many that my writings, while therapeutic for me, were also helping others who were struggling with life events.

My beloved husband of 30 years lost his battle with cancer on July 15, 2011.  I know he is in Jesus’ presence but I miss him desperately.  At the encouragement of many friends, I have made the decision to continue this blog and attempt to share the life and times of being a widow at 53.

I am a Christian and my writing will absolutely reflect this. Thank you, friends, for sharing this time with me.

    Lee Ann,
    First of all, I just want to tell you that you look exactly the same as you did while you and Keith served in Mobile. I’m sorry I didn’t find out in time to attend Keith’s funeral. I worked with Keith as his intern about a million years ago at No Mobile. I’ve thought about him ofter over the years. I’m currently a pastor in GA and I am married with one child Nathan. I’ll be sure to pray for you and your family and I hope that you will continue to blog. In times of distress and trial I often remember that God never promised to take us out of our trails and hard times, but he promised that he’ll walk with us through our trials and hard times.“I WILL NEVER DESERT YOU, NOR WILL I EVER FORSAKE YOU,” Hebrews 13:5

    Hold fast He hasn’t left you.
    Hold fast, He is always there
    Hold fast, He’s in that whisper
    Hold fast, He’s knows your name

    In the movie “Avatar” when the tribe recognizes the outsider Jake Sully, they say,”I see You.

    God see’s you Lee Ann
