PRAYERS FOR ANNA


"EARLY MORNING", Copyright by Naturegirl, 2009
**********
Please pray for my friend, Anna (Nature Girl) of Ontario, Canada. This very week, when she expected to be celebrating five years free of breast cancer, she has learned that she has lymphoma, a cancer involving the cells of the immune system.
So, instead of working with and photographing the flowers in her lovely, sunny garden, she has been thrust into the cold, sterile and scary world of hospitals, clinics and labs.
A couple of years back, when she had ankle surgery, she said she could feel the loving arms of her friends envelop her as she lay on the operating table. She needs those comforting arms around her more than ever. As I think of her, I am visualizing a white, healing light streaming her way.
If there ever was an appropriate name for a blogger and a blog, it's hers: Nature Girl and Nature Trail. Over the years, Anna has taken us along on that trail, a journey of the glories of this natural world. Having gotten to know her through e-mails, I have learned that she is a lovely and gracious lady. She was so kind to me when I lost my Penny last winter.
Most of all, Anna is a strong woman. She not only had to face her breast cancer, but also her husband's and daughter's cancer diagnoses. Anna has beat cancer once and I know she will beat it again.
She is a warrior who, in a post today, said she will again put on her armor and "fight this cancer by choosing to see the possibility of a bright future."

I'm so sorry to hear this, it's even worse when she was thinking that she had made it through the five years. She will be in my thoughts and healing energy will be sent her way.

Prayers and healing hugs are been sent to Anna. As a fourteen year survivor of double mastectomies, I have walked in her shoes. I will keep her in my prayers.

Annie said...

Julie, what sad news for me to return to. I'm making my way through blogs to catch up and had not reached Anna's yet. Your post for her is so filled with love and warmth - a very good weapon indeed to fight this. I'm going over to my prayerlist right now to post her name.

Such a Wondrous Place this Faery Space said...

Blessings.
