Special Gift

I work with many amazing people at work. That is one of the reasons I like my job so much. They have all been so excited and supportive of my journey to Abby. One particular person That I work with has really been on my mind. This person is not only a wonderful nurse but an excellent role model as well. After an extremely tragic last year in which she experienced several personal losses, she ended up loosing her very young daughter quite suddenly. Through out her losses she has remained very strong and positive. I don't know how she has managed to carry on but she does. She recently came back to work and we were all happy to have her back.


The other day she gave me this Willow figurine. She told me simply that she saw it and thought of me. I was overwhelmed when she gave it to me. I didn't cry then but am doing so now as I type this. How special that she, after all she has been through, can still take the time to think of me? I can only imagine the pain she must feel. I truly wish there was something I could do to relieve it from her.......

I really Love the Willow figurines. I have been collecting them as I have been experiencing my journey to Abby. They always make me feel better.


I ask now to everyone reading this. Please take a minute and say a prayer for my friend and her family. They need them. Thank You.......

Consider it done.

Is it not amazing the absolute grace with how some people conduct their lives? They endure so much, ask so little and give immeasurably. Your friend sounds exactly like one of those people we could all aspire to be.

Jen, You have been so thoughtful about her all along. These cares are received and felt by the person you are praying for. She is a very special person and important to you. It's not impossible to believe that she feels your prayers. I know that you are equally as special and so very very caring. I'm so proud of this quality in you and I will certainly be praying for her as well. Love you, Mom

I still find it amazing how some people...no matter how much they may be hurting...can still think of others feelings before their own...that is the definiton of a TRUE friend! God Bless her. I'll be sending some prayers her way.
