For Sue...

Please excuse me for not being my usual positive and happy self today....my heart is filled with sadness.

Yesterday a very dear family friend passed away.... from breast cancer.

I really don't feel like blogging today but I also feel like I need to so I can somehow say goodbye....

We didn't have our usual monthly chat about politics, religion, cooking, England and soccer this month because she was too sick to talk on the phone.

We didn't have a chance to tell her how much she meant to us because her decline was so intensely rapid....she was only diagnosed with the cancer in April.

We can't say goodbye in person because she lived in England.

She was only 47.

So, today I am dedicating this post to our dear friend Sue.

We love you, Sue!



The day God called you home

God looked around his garden
And He found an empty place.
He then looked down upon this earth,
And saw your tired face.

He put his arms around you
And lifted you to rest.
God’s garden must be beautiful
He always takes the best.

He knew that you were suffering
He knew you were in pain
He knew that you would never
Get well on earth again.

He saw that the road was getting rough.
And the hills are hard to climb,
So He closed your weary eyelids
And whispered "Peace be thine".

It broke our hearts to lose you
But you didn’t go alone
For part of us went with you
That day that God called you home

I'll be back again tomorrow for my regular Say G'day Saturday Link up. It will be very pink in honour of Sue and all of the other brave women who have fought and who are still fighting this terrible illness.

Blessings and best wishes,
