Ringing the Bell for Barry

I don't know Barry, but today I ring the bell for him. Barry wanted to celebrate his last chemo treatment today... and I rang a bell for him. The word "chemo" came home to me last November, when my mother (Rita) was diagnosed with Breast cancer. It's been a long journey already but I've seen God work in amazing ways in her life. She is such a trooper through it all. She's got 3 (treatments) down, 3 to go. Then a short stint of radiation. By summer I'm hoping to see her enjoying a vacation at the beach, her favorite place, with a full head of hair blowing in the wind. So Barry, even though I don't know you... I feel like I already do. And today, sir, I ring the bell for you.
