Its late and the night is quiet except for the rattle of the occasional car passing over the speed bumps on the road. I long for sleep to take me but the discomfort from the biopsy lingers and acts as a barrier to rest. The prayers and kind thoughts of friends carried me through the day but I don't think I could have made it without the presence of my best friend.
We've had many adventures in our long 48 year friendship and with God's blessings, I hope we share many more. Seems like our next venture will carry us into the world of medical procedures and hospital stays.....but only briefly. Then we'll be exchanging resipes and sharing books and looking ahead to the things we'll do once either one of us wins the lottery. And in between the tears, there will be lots of laughter.
She has taught me so much.....about myself...about life...about what it means to be a real friend....I thank God for putting her in my life. And I count myself extremely blessed to have a once in a lifetime kind of sister-friend like her.
