With a heavy heart

I am about to lay down. My head is spinning of past memories. My oldest childhood friend just texted me that hospice is at her moms. She us in her 50's. She has had ovarian cancer for about 2.5 yrs.

She was in Korea for several months doing an experimental treatment. I thought that it was going to be THE miracle treatment.

She has fought and fought. You can't help but ask and wonder , why? Why Lord? These are many of the things we will not know, at least not here on earth.

I am heartbroken for my friend Holly. (and family) Her mom was like my 2nd mother since 6th grade. I have only had 2 friends who's mothers made me feel like one of their own and she was one.

She wants me to come to her beach condo tomorrow and take pictures. (I offered ofcourse) So, if your reading this, please say a special prayer for me cause I really need it. {i cry easily and alot!} But most of all, please pray for Diane and family. ( he knows who we are talking about! )

Thanks in advance, Daphne

  1. Prayers coming your way, darlin'. You're the perfect person for the pictures because you love them so much. xoxoxo

  2. Oh, sweet Daphne. How your heart must be aching for your friend. But know this....God does things in His own time. Just imagine that sweet lady going before you/her family to prepare a place for them. She will be at peace that we have yet to experience. As Jesus cried for His friend, Lazarus, so you will cry for your friend.
    Prayers, sweetie.

  3. Oh, Daphne. I'm so sorry. I'm praying for your friend, Holly, and her mother...and the family, of course. I am all too familiar with knowing what it's like to have a parent with cancer. Just keep being a good friend...you'll find that you're a lot stronger than you think. Take some wonderful pictures, laugh & smile and if tears are shed just know they are tears of joy and not sadness.
