My mom still has a joyful heart even though she has cancer and is going through chemo. The other morning I was upstairs and she was downstairs reading her Bible, when suddenly I heard singing. I realized she was singing some Bible verses. I was really moved. She did it again this morning. Her spirits are up even though she's going thru chemo right now. God is so good. Also, on Wednesday, I went for a walk outside with her in the evening, for 15 minutes. She hadn't gone outside to walk around and smell the flowers for over 2 months! She really liked it. I'm thankful that she has enough energy to walk around a little bit, and to eat well. She hasn't had nausea from chemo yet. I enjoy every day with her. I pray with her every night before bed too.

One of my best friends, Sally, got married over the weekend on a catamaran. Since the catamaran only fit 50 people, they couldn't invite all of their friends, so they had a cookout at Mission Beach on Sunday 7/2 to celebrate their wedding with many other friends. It was really fun except that it was a bear to get there. Everyone and their brother is vacationing in SD over the July 4th long weekend, and everyone was at the beach! We parked 2 miles away and walked. This picture is me, Julie, Sally, and Stacy, all friends since we were 12 years old at Foothill Middle School! It's so cool to have this mini-reunion and catch up. Sally's mom Zora and her dad William, and Julie's mom all remembered me from the teenage years. We spent a couple of hours on the beach, the breeze was nice due to the heat, and had hamburgers, hot dogs, and drinks. It was really relaxing and fun.
