Grab your tissues and count your blessings!

So as most of you know, I recently finished working at Seattle Children's hospital on the hem/onc (cancer) unit. In my quest to stay updated on the progress of my cute little patients and their families, I referred to this great website, Lynette Johnson is a photographer who takes pictures of children with life threatening health conditions and their families. She does this free of charge as a gift to the families who are dealing with the unimaginable. The pictures are heartwarming, and a great reminder of how blessed we all are. So take a minute and check out the photographs of these precious little people and their amazing parents.

(Claire's family was in our Issaquah ward. She is currently in the hospital undergoing a bone marrow transplant. If you have a spare second to offer a prayer for Claire and her family that would be greatly appreciated. You can checkout her Caring Bridge site, linked to the right.)

Such a tear jerker of a site! What amazingly positive attitudes and what beautiful children. Makes me ashamed of the times I whine over my silly problems.

I copied I have a blog of my own! Not near as funny though. And I don't really know how to work the site. Maybe we can set some time aside and you can give me a tutorial over Christmas break.
