We Heart Moms: Prairie Blossoms

Today, Lenora of Prairie Blossoms in Saskatchewan shares with us just how amazing her mom is:

I am so proud of my mother, Grace. She has suffered with diabetes and heart disease for many years. There have been days filled with pain, heart attacks, and exhaustion. Then, two years ago while preparing for heart surgery, we learned she had leukemia. The heart surgery was put on hold and she started chemotherapy. My mother spent eight weeks in the hospital while receiving intense chemotherapy treatment. She lost a ton of weight and all of her hair, but remained strong, positive, and faithful. The doctors and nurses always commented on the positivity and humor my mother had.

Yesterday, we learned that my mother will only need to receive one more "round" of chemotherapy. She has been in remission for nearly two years and has been undergoing chemotherapy for the entire time. We're so happy for this good news! Her diabetes and heart still bother her most days, but she remains optimistic and has a great will to live. I admire her strength, her faith in Him, her humor, and her undying love for family. I feel so blessed to call her "mom".
