Lift Up a Blog Neighbor

Hello sweet friends,
This community is always ready to jump in and support one another in good and bad times.
There has been so much joy added to my life from being a part of this Blogland, idea ... neighborhood?
Yes I think neighborhood is what this is.
There is a neighbor who could use a visit, a kind comment, perhaps an uplifting message.

I met a delightful and artistic woman several years ago at Silver Bella.
We were able to reunite the following year and it was like we had been old friends.
Unfortunately, since last we met,  Sandi of Victorian Gypsy has had two of the worst years anyone can ever imagine.
In 2010 she was diagnosed with breast cancer and started a new much needed job during treatment.
In the fall she lost her youngest son unexpectedly and in the spring of last year she lost her husband to cancer a month after he was diagnosed.
She has been much on my mind.
She is a strong woman and is moving on as best she can for the sake of her other four children and her beloved grandchildren but how much can one lady take?
Yes she does have friends and family who are a major support system but we all know how lovely it is to have a blog and know someone out here is paying attention and has your back as well.
One of her wishes at the beginning of 2011 was to grow her blog to 200 followers.
With the trials life has thrown her way recently that just hasn't happened.
I am not asking you to follow
 (although she is a very talented crafter and shares her beautiful work on her blog),
just stop by here and give a kind word.
If you find a new blog to follow that will be the icing.
Oh and a prayer never hurts.

Begin again today, P.

Pin It!

Thanks Pam....boy, when you think you have problems, there's always someone else. It makes yours seem so trivial. I will check out her blog. Thanks for the info.~Hugs, Patti

Just goes to show self pity is a waste 'cause there are so many others worse off!!

Thanks Pam. I left her a messaage and thought I'd follow along so I could give her a (((((HUG)))) every now and then.
I know a couple bloggers that can use some encouragement and had hoped to post about them as well. We can all help each other.
