Cancer Sucks, Y’all…But Good Friends? That Takes the Sting Out…

So, Claire, Sherrill, Jennifer, and Jazelle?  This one is for  you, Babes…I love you all and have NO way to repay any of you, except to tell you how very much I love all four of you.

This week has been a bitch. I’m not trying to soften the blow or mince words.

I appreciate my friends more than they will ever know. Life’s too damned short, y’all.

Once again, tonite? I am typing with a heavy heart, but better than last night? There is a little joy in there, too.

As an emotional softie, my girl, Claire Lopez, seems to know who I am underneath it all, and sent me the following link. I watched it at work and cried like a baby the first time. Watched it a second time, and actually felt a little stronger. Came home and watched it a third and fourth time, and think that I might actually get through tomorrow.

Thank you, Claire…You know…just for getting me and shit. I will come to Texas from over here in NC to find you and hug my thanks to you sooner than you think. 🙂

Sherrill, who has loaned me her strength (and, OMG, I hope this works) tells me:

“I will loan you my strength.

”Kick ass,

“Take names,

”Live out loud,

”Live life by the balls…and give it a SQUEEZE”

God bless anyone that will loan me strength like that.
Thank you Jen & Jazelle…not only for being beautiful on the outside, but being beautiful on the inside, and agreeing to let me capture you both as who you are…Art goes on and on…and I am going to take it and run with it with your help. 🙂
I will be at the Wayne County Relay for Life tomorrow evening with friends and family to honor those we have lost, and those that still go on.  Wayne County Fairgrounds…Be there or be square, if  you can.  🙂 Tim and I will be walking laps for my surviving friends (y’all know who you are). and for my friend and her family.
Friday wrap up will be on Saturday.
Till next time…

    Can’t wait for that hug, Jules. And sending you big cyber (and eventually f2f) hugs tomorrow and the next day, and next month, and at Christmas….’cause this grieving bullshit takes awhile to walk through. ❤
