As I type, I'm listening to Rachel Barkly. She is just a regular person, so no need to google the name. She is a 37 year old mother with 2 young children and a loving husband. She found out 6 weeks before the speech I'm listening to, that she is dying...soon.
Tears are rolling down my cheeks.
Maybe I'm crying because I see so much of myself in her. She's a mom, she's got a lot of pet peeves (many that I share), she's my age, she has brown hair, and so on...
Or maybe I'm crying because she is nothing like me. She's brave beyond my comprehension in the face of my greatest fear.
I found her after reading my RLC friend's blog, his wife has recently been diagnosed with breast cancer at 33. Please pray for Jaime and Holly.
Oh, and Rachel, she died two weeks ago. Watch this video, be inspired.
