I Believe She's Amazing - A Tribute to Mom

Pin It!
I often hear people talk about
their mother-in-law in . . . 
er . . . a less than positive light.

But God must have known that I 
needed a special woman to be 
my mom-in-law--because that's what I got.

Mom & me before she became ill.

So when I heard about this dance tribute
called "I Believe She's Amazing", 
I thought of Mom Lunt.

So, before you watch the dance video, I want to share 
something very personal about Mom. She is dying
with something called Inflammatory Breast Cancer.

As in every other phase of life, she is showing
courage & grace
Even as she struggles & suffers,
she continues to teach us--her children--SO MUCH.
I DO BELIEVE SHE'S AMAZING!



I'll bet you know an
amazing woman too.

  3. I love that video!
    Sorry to hear that your mother-in-law is going through that. My mom passed away from cancer 12 years ago. It's not easy to watch the ones you love suffer through cancer.

  4. The first video was so informative. I've heard of IBC, but didn't know much about it. That last video brought tears to my eyes. I'm sorry your mil is going through this. I'll be praying for her. Thank you for sharing this info.
    Blessings,
    Marcia

  5. I'm so sorry to hear about your mother in law's cancer. She sounds like an amazing woman!
    Michelle, I can't believe I came across your blog. I used to know you a looooong time ago in Sandy! I was a very dorky/nerdy teenager and looked up to you so much and wanted to be just like you. I used to babysit Robbie and your other son, I forgot his name.

  7. Hey girlie! Thanks for stopping by and leaving me some love on my blog. You are great!
    Your post hit really close to home. My Grandmother lost her battle against breast cancer over a year ago. We miss her dearly. I truly believe only the STRONGEST people are given this awful trial in life. I can see that you mother in law is just that...a strong woman who can get through this. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Enjoy each day...as you know they are special gifts from above.

  8. I'm recently divorced... and was never close to my ex-MIL... but I hope someday that I will be a special MIL to my son's wife. Thanks for sharing your wonderful thoughts of such an amazing woman... and I bet she feels like her DIL is a pretty amazing woman too! My thoughts are prayers are with you and your family. Huggies!

    Many thanks to all you dear blog friends for your kind sentiments regarding Mom Lunt. It warmed my heart to receive these messages. Please pass the information regarding Inflammatory Breast Cancer on to the women you love. (It happens to young women too!)

  10. Hi Michelle!

    I was wondering if I could do a post about this and link it back to you so that even more awareness can be said about it? I will probably do it on Tuesday...let me know what you think!

  11. In my breast cancer circles we called it the "beast". IBC is the beast of all beasts. I followed a lady on a online breast cancer support group that had IBC. She was such an inspiration. She wrote a book about her journey. I purchased the book and let my Pastor use it to read. At the time my friend was suffering and dying from Lobular BC. Their journeys seemed parallel and I thought it would help him to minister to her. Unfortunately he moved away and I forgot to ask for it back. There really is not enough awareness regarding IBC. Good for you in using your blog to make others aware. Praying for supernatural healing.
