a friend of mine

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

She looks like she might come from England, she is beautiful with her cream complexion and rosy cheeks, dark eyes, brown bobbed hair, and soft, soft skin.  She always has a gentle tone and something kind and loving, always genuine, to say.  She is genuinely interested in others, makes you feel comfortable, and goes out of her way for others.

She has a strong faith, a delicious family; three children and one super-duper husband.  She loves being a mother and a wife, and is a great source of inspiration.  She’s been a role model to me for saving money and spending wisely…..though I am not as adept nor as consistent as she is.

She is crafty: a sewer, a knitter, a fabulous cook and baker, and she is handy with a paintbrush.  She is beautiful, she is special, patient, a person whom I admire, trust and love.

She is undergoing her second round of surgery in a week.  Firstly to remove what was thought to be a dead portion of lung, and secondly, today, to remove any suspect tissues as what was initially removed turns out to be a rare and slow-growing cancer.

We have known each other for over 12 years and have supported each other through a great deal.  Please say a prayer for her and her family, and send love to my beautiful brown-haired friend as she recovers.  Thank you.
