I feel self-indulgent even talking about my reaction because it is not without a degree of selfishness. My story is nowhere near as difficult as hers, though certainly her struggles are deeply felt by all of us that love her and have been honored and blessed to have her in our lives all these years. But my reaction is what it is, and it has become futile for me to deny it. Part of me argues, what kind of person would I be if I did?
So today I only have to offer these few explanatory words for those who have wondered and been worried. If you are so inclined, a prayer for comfort and healing for her would be appreciated. At this point, I myself don't have too much else to offer.
