A rather different post to my usual ones and no cards, instead a message to a very special person who has been a crafting and personal friend for some years.
It am not going to mention her name, that would not be right, but she is going through a very difficult time having very recently been diagnosed with breast cancer. She was there for me as I went through my health problems last year and she is the most kind and caring person you could wish for.
This morning three of my girls ran the Race for Life Mud Run in Peterborough, they were just three of the many thousand who were taking part, they were in the first batch of 300 starting phases which were going on every fifteen minutes until late afternoon, estimates were at least 7,000 taking part and many more onlookers offering moral support.
My girls at the finishing line
And the feet to prove it
What struck me as extremely humbling was the feeling of camaraderie between entrants and spectators alike, not to mention the many messages of support on the backs of entrants tee shirts for those close to them affected by the awful disease.
I would love to have taken part but I doubt I would have made it over the starting line, but I was with the runners in spirit every step of the way and my dear friend was also close in heart. They were selling these pretty flowers to help raise funds and hubby bought these two for my friend and we hope the love that comes with them is a little help in offering you strength to fight what is ahead towards a positive outcome.
