We helped make beautiful, miraculous, magic happen out in Indiana for Amy & Jake, from the spring until we know we can rest easy.
Today, I am asking all my powerful healing, praying, wonderful friends to pull out all the stops for some amazing women.
Today and tomorrow, my friend Patrice is saying goodbye to her lifelong friend, Clare. Clare died in her sleep last week and the people who love her most are coping with this loss. I don't know Clare. But, I do know Patrice, and she is, bar none, one of the kindest, most generous people I know. Patrice's profound faith will no doubt help her tremendously. Still, I am asking you to please send her thoughts of beauty and love and joyous memories as she travels down this path of grief.
Today I would love it if you could send your collective energies out to two women who are fighting this battle now.
I received permission to share the full names and locations of these two women for those of you who have requested that information in the past.
Karen has contributed to every Coffee/Wine For a Cause since it's inception, and she has donated to Amy's HEARTfelt Fundraiser as well.
Karen's sister, Kelly Loretta, lives in St. Louis, Missouri and is currently battling breast cancer with a positive attitude and a fierce determination to be utterly victorious in the battle. Her first treatments began in early December.
Karen spent the holidays with her sister. Her family got stranded out there a little longer than anticipated due to the weather this past week, so the visit went on longer than expected and really, that's what family is for.
Kim was given a diagnosis of breast cancer just before Christmas. Kim begins her first rounds of treatment TODAY. Kim is a hugely private person and the fact that she is OK with all of you out there sending her healing vibes, prayers and good thoughts is a BIG DEAL.
It is my supreme honor to use this blog as a vehicle of healing. Through quotes, through stories, and through music.
Learn to talk like me and be an angel too
But maybe you ain't never gonna feel this way
You ain't never gonna know me, but i know you
I'm singing it now
Things can only get better
