Hello Dear Friends!
I wanted to take a moment to ask if you could go by Angie at Gumbo Writer's place and send some love and encouragement her way. Her mother has brain cancer, for the last two years or more, and as time passes, her mother becomes sicker and weaker than ever. It truly is just a matter of time.
As well, to make things worse, one of Angie's old friends just found out she has cancer, so Angie is also helping her friend though this, going with her for radiation treatments in between her "shifts" with her mother. Angie has a family, teenagers, and a husband who has to travel a lot. I don't know how she is standing up, much less helping and doing all she does for people. She's one of the most self-less women I have ever known in my life. Angie is one of a kind - a beautiful person and soul and woman. I could spend a long time listing the good works Angie does, oh yes, I could. Despite all this, if I called her and said, "I need you," she'd come--I'd never do that, knowing how chaotic her life is right now, and how exhausted she feels, but, knowing that awe's me about her.
Angie was really active with her blog up until lately when it just became too much. That blog was her outlet, though, her saving from thinking about her mother's cancer at every turn. Now, it seems bastard cancer is all around her, sneaking its tendrils into her every waking moment, and probably in her dreams, too.
I know when she gets back to her blog, the site of support from the blogger community will make her heart sing. She does so much for others; I'd love to see something nice done for her.
It would take just a moment to go by and offer your love, support, a hello, something....I know how lovely and supportive this blogging community can be. Thank y'all! *muwah*
