Wanted: Good Thoughts and Prayers (and Virtual Flowers)

When I first began blogging, I wanted to be anonymous.    It took me a long time to comment on others’ blogs and then I even used the blogonym, Eliot.     I liked the anonymity.

Then I started connecting.    I “met” people that I really liked.    If we had been geographically closer, we would have been great friends.    I really wanted to live next door to them, sharing recipes and borrowing cups of sugar and drinking cups of tea in each others’ gardens.

One of these friends is Aimee at From Chapel Hill to Chickenville.     I originally became acquainted with Aimee through  SRC.    I thought she was hilarious and her blog was one of the first that I commented on using my real name, Debra.

Aimee is why I am writing this morning.     She has had  some family difficulties lately.   Her father was diagnosed with cancer earlier this year and her father-in-law suffered a car accident.   Now, as Aimee puts it, the straw that has broken the camel’s back has been placed.    Her beautiful two-year-old daughter, Abigail,  has been diagnosed with kidney cancer.

It breaks my heart.

Please, please, please send lots of good thoughts and prayers to Aimee and her family in this time of need.      I just can’t imagine what they are all going through.     Please let her know that we are all thinking about her.

You can keep up with Abigail’s recovery at http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/abigailmc.

You can post a comment on Aimee’s blog here.index

My proposal?   Besides sending thoughts and prayers up daily, let’s send Abigail and Aimee some virtual flowers.   If you could snap a photo of your favorite spring and summer flowers and post a little thought to Abigail on your blog, we could let them know how much we are thinking about them.

Aimee, please tell Abigail that these are lilacs and heirloom yellow “mini” roses from my garden.

I am sending you both LOTS of good thoughts, positive energy, and prayers daily.
