Christine's Response to Claire's Blog Post on Faith
Filled up and overflowing with Love for Claire. And she's right about those God Winks. Searching for them in everyday life is pleasant and rewarding. I think Holly's favorite God Wink may be when the oncologist, Dr. Kettryl used the arcade game, Wack a Mole, as a metaphor for how chemo helps radiation work: The chemo is like a helper to push the moles (cancer cells) up farther so the radiation can smash them more easily. Wack a Mole is big in our family. We have never passed a Wack a Mole or any of its variations without playing it. Dr. Kettryl using Wack a Mole helped give Holly peace about the treatment protocol. After Dr. Kettryl's explanation we got an Extra Big Smile of Relief from Holly.
