As I finish wrapping presents and prepare for Christmas I am humbled by today’s nominee. Lisa is a mother to three children 10, 8 and 6. She has terminal cancer. As I write this she is struggling to survive today, to love her kids just one more day and be with her family. The strength that must take to endure is mind-boggling to me.
There are no words just helplessness as I write this.
She was nominated by her child’s teacher second grade teacher, Mrs. Watters. This teacher has taught both of the older children and will most likely have the youngest next year. Mrs. Watters wrote of how Lisa’s tenacity and strength leave her in awe. Lisa updates family and friends through a Caring Bridge website and Mrs. Watters says even on Lisa’s worst days that she writes with optimism.
When the first light of sun-
When the long day is done-
In your smiles and your tears-
Through each day of your years-
Lisa our prayers and well wishes go out to you and your family,
The Cheer Squad
