So much faith, so much heart

My mom and dad have been through so much these past 3 years. 3 years ago my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer and went through a MAJOR surgery and chemo for a year. Probably the toughest year of my mom and dad's life. But through it all, I saw my Mom's faith in the Lord grow stronger and stronger. Infact, I think my mom was more concerned about us and Logan, then she ever was about herself.
A month ago, my mom had a little piece of skin removed from her face. She takes every bit of care for herself now, wants everything to be checked out and doing good. When you go through something like Breast cancer, it makes you see how quickly something can spread and how deadly it really can be. My mom was so lucky they caught her breast cancer in time and we thank the Lord for that.
She had a biopsy done on the skin and they found that it was cancerous. Cancer caused from the sun. They need to either remove it or she needed radiation. After already doing Chemo for a year...she opted out and chose removal instead.
She had the surgery Tuesday morning and they had to go in 4 different times to get all the cancer. This was a super long day for my mom and my dad (and all of us). They have gotten all the cancer out, To GOD BE THE GLORY. Please be praying for my mom and that she will have a super fast recovery. As you can imagine, it's hard to hide this surgery from the world do to it being on her beautiful face but we trust that God is in Control and has a plan through all of this.
My mom is a super strong woman and I know that it is only because she trusts in the Lord with her whole heart. My mom is sure a wonderful example for me.
