I know this will be dup content, but Rhea's recent thread about her fall brought this to my mind and I have to share it, because it reflects so much of what the feeling is here at ABW. Taken from my first personal website at a well-known women's community:
I've never thought much about breast cancer, because it has never before touched my life. This particular page was done when I found out that the friend who is dearest to my heart, who I've known for close to 20 years, was diagnosed with that condition. I threw this page together on the day she had a consultation with the surgeon, and sent out the url as an urgent prayer request.
Friend of the Heart
A friend of the heart encourages you,
Bears you up when times get rough
And the trials of life seem unsurmountable.
She shares your joys and achievements, and always tells you
How great you are, even when you're not feeling like you are.
She tells you the truth, in love, when flattery would be kinder--
Always in love, never in judgment or condemnation.
She sticks with you, is always there for you,
Accepting, supporting, sharing the plans and the pains of your life.
She loves your child for you when you can't,
And loves you even at the times when you're totally unloveable.
A friend of the heart is the Face of God
Looking at you across the table at the Chinese restaurant.

"A friend is the one who comes in when the whole world has gone out." /Grace Pulpit/
"If instead of a gem, or even a flower, we should cast the gift of a loving thought into the heart of a friend, that would be giving as the angels give." /George MacDonald/
