I haven't felt much like blogging lately. I wish I could say that I have been too busy (i have) or that I really didn't miss you (i did). But I have had a cloud around me lately. A very dear friend of mine was diagnosed one year ago with stage four ovarian cancer. She was admitted into a hospice program a few weeks ago. I wish you all knew her. She is fabulous! Strong and stubborn. Sweet and still more than a bit of a smart ass. She has kids that are 9 and 6. She could be one of the coolest moms I have ever met. And she is dying.
I have been sitting with her while her husband is at work about three days a week. I don't have words for any of this. Just sadness. In no world is this fair. I spend my days thanking God for every second I have with her and for every second I have with my own children.
Will you all do me a favor? Pray for her. Pray for her sweet family. Pray for every minute and hour that she has left. And pray for me will you? That I can be strong when she is not. That I can show grace when there is very little around. She has taught me so much.
