Near And Dear To My Heart

I would like to tell you about somebody that I think is very special. Everybody needs somebody like her in the family.Her personality makes you love family. She is a blessing in my life and I am glad to know her.

I was her flowergirls in her wedding to my uncle many many years ago. Her husband my uncle is my godfather. Her girls look like my girls. I am so excited because they will grow up to be gorgeous.

Her name is Barb she is beautiful and her husband says she's got great legs.

When I found out I was pregnant with Hannah she offered so much support. Me being pregnant was the right time but it's not our timing it's God's timing right? right! She had me call her every week to give her progress. If I didn't call she called me. Let's just say I never let her have to call. Barb co-hosted my baby shower with my sister. It was such a nice shower too. She was at the hostpital after I had Hannah. She brought me the cutest little Carter's outfit. In fact Gracie wears it all the time. I remember being so excited that I pumped all this breast milk I showed her. I think she was thinking to much info. Then I really had a bad pregnancy with Gracie. I was in the hostpital a lot. She called me at the hostpital to see how I was holding up. When I got home I could call her about anything. She always made me feel better.

She is very loving to my girls and always interested in what they are doing. With our schedules we talk about twice a month. Our conversations always end with I love you. She is just a good person. I declare her as my favorite aunt. She knows it too.

So why am I sharing her with you? I realize everyday how much family is important. How we all need each other. We all make mistakes and we all need family to be there to say it's okay I love you and we are here.

You see, my Aunt was diagnosed with breast cancer. Though it is in the first stages I am very worried for her.Well, just because I worry about everything. Her spirits are high and she is ready to tackle this the best way she can. Barb is the kind of person that does not complain about little things. She has a positive outlook on everything and I admire her for that.

So tomorrow at 11:30 she will have a mastectomy. So my friends in the bloggy world I ask for special thoughts and prayers for her. She is young and a good person. Our family needs her. At least I need her. I even donated my boobs to her but she declined. So please tomorrow do what you can to send warm thoughts to her. Thank You everybody I know you will help.

I send my prayers for you and can't wait to see you. It will all be over soon and we will be on the deck drinking margaritas.

I love you Aunt Barb call me if I can do anything for you or the girls.

She'll make it through! Positive thoughts and prayers, and of course, laughter are the best medicine! My Mom is a breast-cancer survivor, so I know how scary it can be when a loved-one is diagnosed. We'll say a prayer for her too.
