Ahh, sweet Avery. . .
I consider every one of my sessions special.
Sometimes I know my clients beforehand, and sometimes the day of our session is the first time we ever meet.
In Avery’s case, it was kind of both.
I had heard about & prayed for a two-year old little girl in a nearby town with cancer.
I had not ever met her or her parents, but being a mother myself you also picture your own babies when you hear of something frightening.
And I’m not sure there is a much more frightening word in the world than “cancer”
Last summer while eating lunch at Puckett’s Grocery in Columbia fate come into play.
It was a hectic trip. Both of my kids were unsatisfiable. Nothing made them happy.
They wanted to do anything but sit down & eat. Finally one spoke about the bathroom then all of a sudden both of them needed to go.
But it was a blessing is disguise. I met Tiffany, Avery’s mom, in the bathroom at Puckett’s :)
Tiffany, a big talker + Me, another big talker=Instant friendship!! :D
So, just a couple of weeks later I took Avery’s pictures for the first time.
Even after the session was over they came back inside where we talked for probably another hour.
Last month Avery celebrated being nine months cancer free!!!!!
She still goes every three months (I believe three months is correct) to make sure all of her scans look clear.
Cancer free does not equal worry free.
Please add sweet Avery to your prayer list to live a healthy life into her granny ages <3 I love you, Jenks Family! xoxox
