I have a prayer request for my friends in Blog Land.

I want to tell you about my friend, she’s one of those people that I was just drawn to. Honestly, she had me at hello and I suppose I had her also. We’ve spent hours talking about life, God, kids, marriage, and nothing at all. We’ve laughed and cried together and I’d honestly cut my right arm off to save her life.

When I told her what was going on in my life and that I was divorcing my husband she yelled at me for not calling her for support. She was loud about it. She was also right I do need her. I called her just the other night to vent about something to find that she was recovering from surgery. I knew that she needed it but didn’t know when she was going in. My sorry self has been so consumed with me and the kids that I have neglected others.

Tonight I smiled when my phone rang her ring tone, that smile left my face when she told me that they found cancer.


CANCER!

She’s reassured me that she’s fine and that this one has a high cure rate. I looked it up because that’s how us bloggers roll. It's about a 96% cure rate.

Still. . .
I worry. . .
She’s worried about me and how mediation is going to go so she's is calling me Thursday on her way to tell her mom and the kids.

She’s worried about me!

She has CANCER and she’s ready to cut her right arm off for me!

That's why God gave us friends.

We talked tonight about how we didn’t need anyone else but God and yet He gave us friends
.

Thanks God!

PS Call a friend this week just to talk

Thought of this verse from the Amplified Bible:

24The man of many friends [a friend of all the world] will prove himself a bad friend, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. -Proverbs 18:24

Thank God for your friend Milly.. you need her and she needs you. Blessings to you both as you walk through divorce and cancer together. When you are down, she can lift you up.. and when she is down, you can lift her up.

Your friend, Bob

Wow. Thanks for sharing this Milly. You're blessed to have this kind of friendship. I am glad her recovery rate is so high. Divorce recovery can be painful and I am glad you have her...

I am very glad you have this friend, too. I hope her concern for you makes you feel as loved as I know your concern for her makes her feel loved. Thank you for sharing this - friendship is a blessing.
