One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

I'm here for you....

If it isn't a death it is the dreaded Cancer that is striking.
A friend from church has a very rare kind of lymphoma...no cure for it...she is actually the second person I know from my church with this same cancer.  Only 1500 people a year in the US have this kind of blood disease.  I knitted her a Prayer Shawl, she will start some chemo next week...41 weeks of chemo...weekly!!
She was told 5 - 7 years to live, I am thinking with all the progress made with cancers and cures, that perhaps we cannot give up hope that one will happen and she will have many many more years to live and give praise to the Lord.
I totally copied a card by Debby Hughes in a copics online card class...well, I didn't have all the stamps she used, but the design is hers...the flower is the same it is from Clearly Besotted Happy Everything.
 
Heart Hugs!

  4. It is such bad news to hear of a friend who is battling cancer or any life threatening disease. My neighbor just learned she has ovarian cancer and our next door neighbor had a stroke. I know your friend will enjoy her prayer shawl and your prayers for her. How sweet of you to do that. The card is beautiful.
