I know I have asked for a lot of prayer this week, but I need some more! My boss who is just a WONDERFUL person isn't doing very well. She has lupus. She is in the hospital with pneumonia and congestive heart failure. This women means the world to me.
My mother passed away 5 years ago from cancer. Fran and I took care of her. It broke our hearts. Instead of taking care of her to get her well we were preparing her for heaven. We took care of her in my home. I was with her when she took her last breath. If you would have asked me 6 months before that if I could step in and do that I would of told you NO! I have learned from all of the losses we have had to endure (my dad, brother, nephew, best friend and others) that there is an inner strength in all of us. I believe it is God holding our hands and perhaps even carrying us in our time of need. Anyway, after my mom died I just wanted to crawl in bed and shut out the world. The only reason I did get out of bed was for my son for he was only 8 at the time. My whole life had changed. Life would never be the same. Then about a year later I got this job. My boss Linda is my kindered spirit. I have told her many times that I think God brought us together. I was in a deep black hole and this women brought me out of it. It was like I came to life again. She reminds me so much of my mom because she is the kindest, sweetest and most giving person I have ever met.
I beg of you to please, get on your knees and pray for my sweet friend. Please, if you can will you please ask others to pray for her too? Add her to your prayer chain at church, tell your friends, your family or add it to your blog. bj over at sweet nothings has made something for your sidebar if you would like to add it I would really appreciate it. I need THE POWER OF PRAYER. Thanks You SO MUCH!
