My mum is visiting right now from Canada and it is so wonderful to have her here. I am so blessed to have such a caring support network — family and friends. For certain I know that I would not be coping as well as I am with the ‘C’ without this support.
Today I received a link from my longtime friend, Christina Bjorndal. We all have our life’s challenges to deal with but she has really gone through A LOT. She is one of the most compassionate persons I know — loving, kind, brave, courageous and strong. I want to pay tribute to her for sharing such a personal story which could not have been easy to write. SHE is an inspiration. I encourage you to read the story:
The above photo is of Chris and our mutual friend, Lisa (who I have known since eight years old!), during their last visit to the UK. In her previous blog post, Chris had also written about our enduring friendship. I was really touched by all she wrote.
I am so lucky to be surrounded by good friends near and far. Chris and Lisa, I love you two!
With blessings, JMA
Don’t walk behind me; I may not lead. Don’t walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.
