Prayers and Victory...
One of my dearest friend's daughter is starting chemo today. Really puts all the annoying little everyday struggles of life in perspective. Tammie is the same age as my own daughter. She has already undergone successful surgery for breast cancer; but, they felt she needed the chemotherapy, too.
I ask your prayers for her today.
Tammie is an amazing young woman... standing firm in her faith with rock solid courageousness.
She inspires the rest of us.
This shawl is Victory by Erika Flory. Here is what she writes on her pattern page:
February 16, 2014: Victory: achievement of mastery or success in a struggle or endeavor against odds or difficulties.
And here I am at the second anniversary of successful open heart surgery and six months out from successful breast cancer surgery and radiation.
To celebrate myself and everyone else here on Ravelry who has her/his own victories, the Victory Wrap will be available for free from February 16 through February 20.
I started it in February with a group of my Ravelry friends... and then life got crazy. Who could have imagined that six months later I would be finishing it for Tammie... in a color I would have chosen for her if I had known...
I thank you in advance for your prayers.
