Jamie’s BLOG – DAY 210 :: beautiful friends

29 Jul

A few days before my surgery this card practically fell out of my diary.

It’s from my friend Laura, who has always been the world’s best giver of cards. ALWAYS. Since the first day I met her. Actually before I met her. I think she sent me a card before we even met in our college dorm, just to reach out and say hello before college officially started.

I have tried to keep the cards over the years, but they have ended up in places I can’t remember, scrapbooks, drawers, this one was in a diary.

But I love to think it fell into my hands at exactly the right time.  A little reminder that we get by with a little help from our friends.

Which I am, as I settle back into a real routine – albeit with two robot boobs and drains poking out of my chest. Just a few more days and all will be back to normal.

But I appreciate all the cards and notes and texts and emails and photos… every single one is a little reminder that I have friends helping me get through.

And I think that’s pretty beautiful.

More tomorrow.


{thank you for being a friend}
