Prayer Request

I would love your prayers right now, wonderful interweb friends. A good friend of mine, my best friend in the whole wide world since sixth grade when we played the oboe together in band what? I wasn't in band. Ok, ok, yes I was. I am a true, double-reed playing nerd at heart. Don't tell anyone.

I digress. My bestest friend ever was diagnosed with cervical cancer this week. It's really early, and I think the outlook is good, but still. When you hear 'you have' and 'cancer' in the same sentence, it's not exactly a perk-up-my-week kind of moment, you know? Please pray for her. She's been one of the most positive influences in my life, and she's a little down right now. Ha. As you can imagine. Pray that she would have peace and calmness, and wisdom for some decisions that she and her husband are in the process of making, and that she would just feel God's loving arms wrapped around her, which I know they are.

I'm off to visit her this afternoon, so I'll be back and try to have a fun post up tomorrow. I keep forgetting that I still haven't introduced y'all to Maggie, my new, sweet, slightly scared (of other people, not me) pound puppy.

I'm so sorry to hear that! How scary for her! I just sent up a prayer.

As an aside, I TOO played the oboe. And I am so NOT a nerd. So you aren't either.

I HATE THAT NEWS. I'LL BE THINKING OF YOU AND HER. BUT, IT'S GOOD TO KNOW IT WAS CAUGHT EARLY.

Praying for your friend...

And I just have to tell you that I'm an oboe player too!

Or was, through high school.

I need a reason to dust mine off again and get my lip into shape!
