i’m so grateful today for Bryan’s presence in my life – i really don’t know how i’d be clinging to my sanity if he hadn’t allowed me to vent with him tonight…

so thank you, baby – you are truly such a blessing to me.


i don’t know what to say. my mamaw (my grandmother, for those of you who don’t speak ‘alabama’)  has been fighting ‘muscular dystrophy’ for a long time – well over 20 years. and she’s done so well – she’s been such a trooper…i’m so proud of her for not allowing this disease to ‘claim’ her.  that being said –  this past year has been tough.  she’s lost about 90 pounds and she’s just sort of wasting away – lost a lot of muscle mass and everyone has assumed it was the unescapable effects of having muscular dystrophy.   we found out today that it’s not the MD – but stomach cancer. she has about 5 or 6  ‘growths’ which we are told are tumors in her stomach.   she is 66 years old – so she’s very young.   her name is Linda Lawson and she  is such a beautiful person and she is such a big part of who i am today… the best part.  i am asking for prayers… for her and my papaw – for wisdom for the doctors caring for her and for peace for the rest of my family.  God, be with her – wrap her in your arms and flood her heart with a peace only you can provide…if it is your will to heal her body, i ask that you do so and above all else, please – envelope her in your perfect Love.

i love you so much, mamaw



  1. Absolutely! The very best wishes to you and your entire family as you navigate the journey!

    Oh Mandy. Can they get the tumors out?
    I LOVE your mamaw – shes so sweet and I want her to be ok.

    That is a beautiful prayer…

  4. I will keep her in my prayers. My Mom passed away last year. I will also pray for you. Take good care of yourself along the way.
