You Know Her
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket


There's a woman, and I suppose, in most terms of when you say you know someone, I don't know her. And I suppose, that, then, in those terms, neither do you.


Except I do know her. And so do you.


If you have children, you know her.


If you pray for those children and love those children and rock those children and those children are your life, you know her.


If, beyond the fear of harm coming to your children, your next greatest fear is harm coming to you and you not being there for your children, you know her.


If you are a woman, you know her.


If you are a man that has loved a woman, you know her.


If you are a woman that runs through your monthly self check and never feels anything, but wonders, "God, what if I did feel something", you know her.


If you have ever sat in a doctor's office awaiting test results, stomach in knots, prayers on lips, hands clenched, you know her.


If you are a person that has known someone who has had cancer, you know her.

Because we all know her.


And she needs to know us.

Lovely, true.
I know her.
In the way that we all know her.
And that's enough knowing for me to want to see her through this.
And I will see her through this.
And you will, too.

So, so lovely. And so, so true. Well done.

I am getting so excited seeing more and more names under the Team WhyMommy logo.
