I made this today with all of you in mind.
Admittedly, hearts aren't usually my thing, but what they represent here is the amount of compassion, love, healing, care and all the other positive vibes I've received by being a part of this blogging community. We reach each other from across far and wide, learning many intimate details of one another's lives and grow to care for one another. I've received cards, gifts, emails and comments here that have turned gloomy days into treasured ones.
I thank you.
One of my most treasured of friends made here, and many of yours, is nearing the end of her battle with inflammatory breast cancer (a more rare and dangerous form of breast cancer than what I'm dealing with). I have been missing Renee, of the most wonderful Circling My Head. Her wit and humor have been something I looked forward to when ever I checked in after a new post - knowing she'd be one of, if not the first, to leave me a comment! She helped me a lot as I prepared for stepping onto the chemo path, giving me an incredible amount of advice, based on her own experiences, to help ease my symptoms. Her past few months have been brutal, her suffering great. I love Renee and wish for her as peaceful a departure as is possible.
May your body be at ease Renee and your spirit set to soar.
My heart goes with you...
