for you to pray for my dear friend. She began her chemo the second week of this month and of course the side effects have begun. I know she can make it through this, but she needs every drop of strength she can get from the prayers of the saints. The following is an email I got from her today:
Yes, I have had a few people tell me that they think that she looks like me (referring to her granddaughter’s pictures she sent). I sure don’t see it though. She is way too cute to look anything like me.
Thanks for the prayers and not just yours but the group. I sure do need them. I am really having a hard time with it this time. Besides all of the terrible side effects that come with the chemo and radiation I just can’t seem to keep my spirits up this time. It seems like I spend most of my days in tears, which I know isn’t good, but I am just having a hard time giving it over to God this time. Sometimes I just want to give up, which I know is just Satin, but I still have those bouts of depression. I have watched the movie Facing the Giants a couple of times and am trying to be the farmer who not only prayed for rain but also prepared the fields as well.
Thanks again for your friendship,
