The Worst NewsLast year I wrote about a dear friend of mine. I wrote some poems for her. She was going through treatment for cancer at the time. She did go into remission and we were all very happy for her.
I am sorry to say, the cancer has come back. And all hope has gone. The dr's said less than a year to live. My beautiful Bonnie is a brave soul. I don't want to lose her but in a few months she will have left my life.
A question for you survivors. Of all the wishes and gestures that your dear friends had done for you what was the most endearing? What made you smile in your darkest moment. I want to be able to give or say something special to show just how much I really care about her and her family. My daughter is a professional photographer and she has agreed to take Bonnie's portrait (now, when she is feeling well enough). I would pay for anything that my daughter had to pay out of her own pocket. So of course Bonnie would pay for nothing. Do you think this would be ok? Another idea I had was to give Bonnie a beautiful journal to write anything she felt like writing about. Maybe something she could dedicate to her husband and family. Is the journal too presumptuous of me? I am at a loss right now. I don't wish to be insensitive or overbearing, but I do wish to show how much I care for my dear friend.
