Busy Work, Meaningful Work

I have been pretty busy lately-- so I apologize for the lack of posting.  My nights and weekends have been dedicated to a pretty cool project. I have a very good friend (my oldest friend actually) who is battling cancer.  She was told recently that her cancer is going to be a part of the rest of her life.  

We are planning a party/extravaganza in her honor that is turning into a lovely event. I have been managing this remotely via email and it is truly humbling. There are so many people who care about her, her girls, her extended family and want to celebrate life with her.  At this point, I have over 100 volunteers and am expecting several HUNDRED people.  Talk about a loved woman.  Really neat to see the impact she has had on her community first hand.

It's also been pretty heavy work.  This is a tough situation for all involved.  She was really there for me when my mom passed away as a teenager and I find it hard to not go back to that place when I think of her and her daughters.  I really love this woman and hope you keep my friend in your prayers.
