Shelley, i am so sad to hear that you had to go back to the hospital, we will join in on the fast for sunday that Mike mentioned on your blog. Just know that our prayers are with you every minute of every day, i would love to come to the hospital and talk missionary with you, Zac should get his call within the week, thats what Mike tells us. I remember asking you what it felt like when Taylor left, your response was less than enthusiastic to say the least, and then when Gannon left, not quite as bad, i think i am getting close to the Taylor feeling with Zac. let me know if you can have a visit. Love Tina Keller and family.

Shelley,
You are as pretty as ever and you have a bueatiful Family. I hope you know you are special and Our Heavenly Father loves you. Just seeing your family I can see you have accomplished great things already and there are great things that will come.

May God Bless you and your family forever. We Love you.

I wanted to share something with you to help you laugh because I know life is tough right now.

Seven Foot Lunch

Three genteel ladies went lunching
At a sophisticated hotel.
Their elevator door opened;
They gasped, and their faces fell.


A seven-foot man was inside,
With an intimidating expression.
They got in anyway;
They were the very souls of discretion.


"Sit!" the man yelled, and they sat,
In their luncheon finery,
They went up; then the door slid aside;
The man left, abashedly.


His dog had been behind him;
At lunch they got a note.
The basketball star paid their bill;
"My apologies, and my treat," he wrote.

Shelley & Mike;
Our prayers and best wishes are with you. What strength you both have to share your pain with us, Shelley with a smile, and Mike I can't imagine the hurt to sit in front of the computer and detail for us the suffering of the one you love so much. The length and depth of our trials determine the height and breadth of our legacy, yours is destined to be great. I can tell from all the comments to the blog that you have already touched and influenced many lives for the good. One of my heros has always been Spencer W. Kimball, as you know he endured and over came many trials as well, on his path to becoming one of Heavenly Father's choice servants. Father promises us that we will not be tested beyond that which we can endure. Sometimes our narrow focus of mortality doesn't allow for us to see his vision for us in eternity, continue your trust in the Lord, and keep the love you have of each other and your fellow man, and all will be well.

Dearest Shelley and Michael, I was so sorry to hear that you had to go back to the hospital. I truly feel just like Jan when he talked about the strength that you both have and all the lives you have influenced through this very difficult and challenging time. I know you both have influenced my life for the better. Reading your remarks Michael and all the comments people have posted has helped me to remember what is most important in this life and why we are all here in the first place. My thoughts and my prayers and my love is with both of you and with all of your family. Thank you for giving Curtis and I the opportunity to fast for you Shelley and your family. May our Heavenly Father continue to be with you both and with your children.
Love,
Trina

Hey Shelly, this is Roxie. I can truly empathize with you. I have lymphoma and have been thru chemo and an intravenous radiation treatment. My oncologist is in Tucson at the UofA cancer center. My prayers are with you daily. Keep your faith strong. Music helped me a lot, Jesus Savior Pilot Me was one of my favorite. I will write again soon. Your family is beautiful! Love, Roxie

Fate of Our Life

God is in control of the fate of our life
Even before the time of our birth.
God knows the roads we'll stride
While walking upon this ole earth.

He knows the joys before they come
Heartaches and grievance to succumb.
The tears we cry the pains we bare
Yes, we know our Savior cares.

He knows our dreams, our adversities
He's always there, what ever our need.
In him the worries can't take their toll
While we're walking down life's road.

If we were given just one chance
To see how our future is paved?
Would we be strong and walk in faith
Or tremble with fear at the glance?

Who among us would be brave
If we knew what life had in store?
Would we be willing to accept our fate
Would we still ask for one day more?

No, we know not what lies on life's road.
Just seek the Lord to carry the load.
So, not knowing what may lie ahead
We live by faith and trust instead.
~Malta Nov. 2008~

Shelley, it was so great to see you at Lincoln's game--even though we did all freeze our booties off!! What an awesome family you have. I'm so grateful that we have you and your family in the lives of me and my family. I value your friendship and wisdom so much. You have always been one of those friends who I could tell all of the not-so-great things about myself and I never, ever felt judged by you. A friend like you is rare indeed. Love you---Paula:}

Vaughn and Lincoln have become friends and it is nice to see Vaughn spend time with great boys like your son. My prayers are with you right now. I know that the Lord is aware of you and what you need. But more importantly I know that he loves you with all his heart. As do I.
