Sherry at My Journey Back has started a new meme. Participants are to write about a friend that has meant a lot to them. Last week I wrote about my real life friend, Jo Ann. This week my friend will remain anonymous but I do want to pay tribute to her.
I met this particular friend in the fall of 2007 when I first started my blog. She is loving and thinks of others before herself. She is married with grown children and six grandchildren. Her family means everything to her.
Shortly after I met her, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and had a masectomy. They operated and gave her chemo and radiation. Though we all prayed she would be healed, that hasn't happened so far. The cancer has now spread to other areas and she is going through a difficult time.
This woman has been a real inspiration to me. She looks toward God and is at peace with her diagnosis and prognosis. She told me last night that "All is well with my soul." What a wonderful outlook on life in general and also on her illness.
People come into our lives for a reason and this woman has been a beacon of inspiration and hope for me. May God bless her abundantly as she continues her battle with cancer.
Now, we are supposed to tag one person each week and ask them to tell us about one of their friends. Last week I tagged Hootin' Anni. This week I'm going to tag Storyteller. ~Blessings, Mary~
