Becky's in Maine on Biscay Lake

From Mom:
       So you all may have been wondering "Where is Becky?".   She and her family are spending 10 days on the Lake in Bristol, Maine.  Amy and I were able to spend a wonderful 4 days with Becky, Matt and kids visiting with the Fraser Clan.  What a relaxing place!  Matt's parents have a small 2 bedroom cottage right on the lake and we enjoyed many sunrises and sunsets with loons calling, ducks looking for food and hummingbirds yelling at us for hanging around their feeding area.  The flowers are in bloom and the sun did shine often.  The children have been on the lake everyday rain or shine.  Either using the jet ski or tubing.
        Becky is feeling well these days.  She is starting to loose her beautiful hair- she needs to stop sending me text photos of the daily cluster on the shower floor- it is very sad.  After all she has been through these past few months- this hair loss is hitting us all the hardest- go figure!!!  I guess it's because even though her body has been redesigned and she is being injected with an "army" to kill any hiding cancer cells- she has managed to look the same.  I know even without her long brown thick locks she will still be beautiful.  I know this appearance change will signal another step in the Victory Walk my daughter is traveling.  She does look great in the scarfs- she is not so sure about a wig but time will tell.
          Her next chemo cycle (#2) starts Tuesday 8/16 and so we continue with this journey with our heads held high.  Throughout this season our Lord has been the most gracious and comforting.  Becky has rested in His arms every moment and knows His love and protection.  Thank you all for your continuing prayers.
