I do not have many friends. However, my mother
taught me all you have to have is one and your life is very blessed. Well
I am really blessed because I have a few really good friends. Friends who
I can count on through think and thin and I hope they know they can count
on me for the same.
My best friend Gail is and always has been a hero to me. Here is a woman
who fought breast and cervical cancer and won. A woman who was divorced
with two children at a young age and remarried later on. She had one more
biological child and adopted two more. In all five children. Worked to
support her family and showed not only me but others the true meaning of
life. She is a woman who never holds a grudge, always sees the good in
people and has a personal relationship with G-d.
She was born Jewish, but didn't find what she was looking for within that
religion. She found Christ 20 some odd years ago and is now working as a
Pastor. She travels the world spreading the word of Christ. She lives part
time in the Dominican Republic and will be going to Chile and
Bolivia this year. She is amazing.
Never spoke a word of Spanish and has become fluent in this language. She
recently brought 500 lbs of clothing/shoes to the families in the
DR (Dominican Republic) who needed the
clothing. She teaches school and teaches music. She recently married off
one of her "children" from the DR who
she has known since he was 12. She told me she was able to pull off the
wedding with a bridal gown for less than $300 American Dollars. Raphael
who is one of her "children" from the DR
is attending medical school. I do not think he would have had a shot if
Gail didn't help him. I could tell you that I am so proud of Gail and that
would be true. The real point is I am proud to be her friend. I aspire to
save the world like she does. One person at a time.
Oh, mirror in the
What is love?
Can the child within my heart rise above?
Can I sail thru the changing ocean tides?
Can I handle the seasons of my life?
