Dear friends...this is most likely one of the hardest posts I have ever written. My dear friend Phyllis, who is undergoing treatment for lung cancer, has been told that the rigorous chemo and radiation she has been subjected to is not working. Her doctor has told her and her family that their is nothing more he can do. God, how I hate those words.
My heart is breaking for her husband and beautiful daughter Crystal. I cannot keep the tears from staining my keyboard when I think about this warm, vibrant and guiding light going dark. Phyliss and I were going to be future mothers-in-law together. My son Sean and Crystal have been dating at least 9 years!
I want to scream..rant..and throw things at this monster we call cancer.
I have decided that in order to spend as much time as possible with my friend, I am going to be closing my Etsy shop for a while, turn the sewing machine light off and back away from my online presence. I have thought about this decision and I have to do this...she is my friend. I need to be with my friend.
I know you will understand and hopefully in the future I will return and you will remember me and come visit again. I will miss you and all your creativeness and inspiration.
Please keep good thoughts for Phyliss and her family and I hope to see you here again when time allows.
I wish you all a wonderful holiday season...
P.S......Some friends and I are going to surprise Phyliss tomorrow and decorate her house for the holidays...she LOVES Christmas! I think that will put a smile on her face.
Until next time...be kind and stay creative
