Day 13 of the face challenge, and I am keeping up, (patting my shoulder)
I am off to visit my best friend who is in the hospital again, she has been sick
many years with Scleroderma (an autoimmune problem_
this disease has affected her life
in so many ways, and there is no cure. It took her kidney, it gave her a heart attack,
gout so bad they cant cure it, it has left her with no resistance to any
viruses, diabetes 's she has suffered so much, but yet she manages to put on a brave face
and go on, she is my inspiration so when I have a bad day I just think of
her and pick myself up and go on again. We have been friends since grade 6, lived on the same street, and became best buddies and have ever since. We introduced her to her husband, we went through deaths in our families, births, miscarriages her (she never had kids),. She never complains about her life, and always even if she has a bad day has a smile. She is in and out of the hospital monthly. AlI I can say is I awed by her bravery and her zest for living in the moment.
Do you have a friend a best friend like this not sick but who is there a constant in your life?
