Ever Been So Happy....

...that you can't stop crying? It's such a euphoria!

Two years ago we found out that my Uncle Jim has Leukemia. Today we found out that his brother, Don, is a match for being a stem cell transplant donor for him (they used to do bone marrow transplants, but now they just use stem cells taken from blood instead... a lot less invasive, and with a higher success rate). It's been one of the best days of my life. I am absolutely convinced now that my uncle will beat this, and I'm so happy that our family is so close! God is truly good. It is such a relief to know that when/if the day arrives that he needs that transplant (they are making great strides in finding other cures each and every day) they'll be a match! If all goes well with the transplant, my uncle will be cancer free; completely.

Coincidence? Today marks the 9-year anniversary of the passing of another of my uncles?

Ironic? It's pouring rain at my house and all I can imagine is that my family in Heaven is as happy as we are on Earth.
