To my friend (s)....

I have a friend that a few years back I just could not grasp what she was going through medically. I felt that instead of saying something stupid or uncompassionate I just would say nothing at all. I prayed for her, but I never was a great friend to her. I just could not understand. I now know that during that time she had to feel so alone and scared and frustrated that no one could tell her what exactly she was going through and how frustrating it is when no one can make it better for you.

In an ironic twist, she has been a WONDERFUL friend to me. I so DO NOT DESERVE her friendship. She can relate to what I am going through right now, she is a source of information for me. She pointed me into the direction of an awesome support group. I have empathy for her and what she has gone through and still is going through.

I have told her this recently, and I profusely apologized to her for my lack of support during that time. I explained that I thought it was better to say nothing when you did not know what to say. Gosh I realized now that I sucked.

I also would like to take the time to thank you who take the time to call, im, text, email, send cards just to let me know that you are thinking of us. It really means a lot. Also thank you those that leave comments on Ga be's (and now soon to be Han nah's page) They ask every morning if I can read the comments to them. They like to "check their email!" :)

LOL, their email. They'll be hooked on the computer in no time!!

I'm always here for you sweetie. I'll reply when I log on. Please call or email if there is ever anything I can do.

You've always been so kind and signed Maddie's guestbook. (((hugs))

I wanted to tell you, that I'm opening a carepages page and transferring Maddie's page over... you can do so many more cool things with video/pictures, etc. I'll forward you the link. Does Gabe still have his carepage?

Big hugs to all your beautiful kids!!

something funky happened with my comment, LOL. I had typed that I'm not online as much as I used to be because I moved my laptop back upstairs to get more stuff done during the day, but then erased it... I guess I didn't get the whole thing! LOL
