So, this has nothing to do with sugar. Or food. Or anything even edible. And it’s about someone I don’t even know. And no one is really even reading this, but I just feel the need to share it, on the off chance that the one person that needs to read this, does.
Two weeks ago, I found out about a woman named Joanne Heim. She is 38-years-old. She is married with small children. I don’t even know where she lives. But I do know that on January 11, 2011, she had a massive stroke and was found on the basement floor by her young daughter. She is currently still in the hospital, and will be for a long time.
Her blog is The Simple Wife. It is being updated by her husband, Toben, of her progress and daily battles. Joanne’s sister, (who’s name I also don’t know) writes about it through her eyes and photos at KH Photography. (She is an amazing photography, btw).
I don’t even know this family, but God has really placed them on my heart. So if you have a moment, please click on the links above and read this family’s amazing and inspiring story. It will touch your heart. And if you pray, please add them to your daily prayers. You will be among many that are #PrayingForJoanne.
