My friend is dying of cancer. She is fighting the good fight but this rare form can't be beaten. I, on the other hand, at this point in time, have diseases that I can easily beat. Diabetes and high blood pressure.
All I have to do is keep eating right and exercising as I lose weight. No chemo, no pain, no sadness.
Last night my friend came to our book club for what may be the last time. You may remember my blog where at the last book club I despaired at still looking fat. This time everyone noticed my weight loss and marveled and several others of us had lost weight in a good way. But a cloud hung over us for our friend we love.
We must celebrate each day!
It is a beautiful day here at my house. The dog and I are out for our walk in the woods and on the trails.
Thank God for Blessing me with returned good health and may he Bless us all on our journey.

    Wow, that is a moving blog if I do say so myself. Good news, my friend has been given an improved diagnosis. The doctor said "See you in June". emoticon There have been a lot of people praying for her. She looked so much better at our Christmas party. One day at a time!!!

    Sorry your friend has cancer. What a nasty disease. It does help one put things in perspective. I hope your friend can find some peace with her situation. I will pray for her family and friends. Celebrate with her while you can.
