Last year right around the time I was diagnosed with cancer, Jill posted on her blog asking prayers for one of her prayer group friends, Rochelle Rosenthal who had just been diagnosed with breast cancer. Rochelle and I connected through our caringbridge accounts then email and phone.
Over the past year the Rosenthal family, especially Rochelle have been a huge uplifting blessing from God to me. I count her as my best cancer blessing.
So a few weeks ago when she called to say that their trip to DC was going to be canceled for last week with the shutdown and she wondered if they could come visit us I jumped up and down with excitement.
This past weekend was a flurry of activities, conversation and fun. The more we talked the more we had in common. It truly got to be funny.
The kids didn't take too long to warm up to each other. Aidan was begging for them to stay longer when they had to leave on Sunday. He had a blast with his new friends. The girls were glued to either Klara, Jocelyn or Rochelle all weekend. ( I bet they are sleeping off Dariya right now LOL)
Thanks Rosenthal family for blessing us with your visit. We can't wait to meet your new daughter (they are also adopting a girl from RR)
The door is always open and I promise there won't be so many red lights next time.
