I love bringing our kids to bed.  They are intimate moments.

When I brought Zion to bed last night he asked me why Mommy got cancer.  I told him I didn’t know.  He asked how people get cancer.  I told him that I didn’t know.  He told me that Mommy had cancer in her hair.  I told him that Mommy loves him.  And that I love him.  And that we need to eat our vegetables.

He asked if the doctors knew why Mommy had cancer.  I told him that one day we will find out why people have cancer and we will fix all those that have cancer but that we don’t know how to fix all cancers yet.  I told him again that I love him and will protect him.

Then I left his room and prayed.

I prayed because cancer, your kingdom must come down.
