After Duane passed I believed I was endeared to this woman because I needed to follow her example of strength as I carried on, raising our 7 children without their father. I can't recall the amount of times that the courage of a Queen has been given to me, a broad range from the trivial things like mice in the house to serious matters like a child being hospitalized for a brain infection. Esther's courage gave me a path to follow. Now her example leads me through this second round of colon cancer for my family.
I am a believer; a believer of the power of prayer, healing, the laying on of hands, faith, purpose in this life, a believer in Christ. The day after my diagnosis I asked my father, my old Bishop and our sweet kind neighbor to come give me a prayer of blessing. Afterwards I felt so strongly that I had something to share, what I need to share I did not know, that's what I'm trying to fumble through right now. But as I watched this video I posted above, I felt so strongly to share my love of Esther, her courage, her strength that can be ours in any circumstance in our lives. I liked this quote, "You don't really realize how strong you are until being strong is all you have left." I have no choice BUT be strong and courageous.
