I'm sad...

Friday, August 06, 2010

I just learned early today that one of my best friends for over 20 years won't be with us much longer. We met when our sons were taking karate lessons (8 years old). She had a stroke a few years ago, made a remarkable recovery. Heart problems started later. She had a pacemaker put in at Cleveland Clinic just a few weeks ago. No one expected her to go downhll so fast.

I'll be away this weekend, but plan to visit her on Monday. She should be home from the hospital then. Please keep Barbara and her family in your prayers. Thanks.

    Barbara, I am so sorry. But remember, God is in control. Prayers and your friend's will to live can make those doctors wrong.

I am so happy you will be able to see her, to encourage her and give her the priceless gift or your friendship. My prayers are with you both. Our God is an awesome God and He will do what is best for your friend, because He loves her so much.

    I'm truly sorry to hear of Barbara's heart problem. What a shock.

I don't know what to say that would help, except that I will be praying extra hard for Barbara and her family and of course you.

Give her my love.

Hugs, Joan
