My Aunt Vicky
This year my beloved Aunt Vicky, a woman short in stature, but fierce at heart, has been fighting a ghastly giant called cancer. This amazing woman who baked me cinnamon rolls, made me double over in laughter from her performance singing "Sadie, Sadie" from Funny Girl, and taught me how to make beautiful crocheted flowers is now battling this horrific beast and it hurts my heart.
Through it all, Aunt Vicky is handling this with tremendous grace and courage. If you would like to read more about her journey visit my Uncle David's blog Little Woman Big Soul. Her story is truly touching and has brought tears to my eyes on more than one occasion.
I love you Aunt Vicky! You are truly an inspiration and even though I live so far away and I am not able to show my support for you in person, I just want you to know I'm here in Illinois rooting for you on the sidelines! You are a star.
