Amy is a wonderful gal I met through the internet years ago on ebay. She is a mom to 4 girls, also a "bonus" mom and the the proprietor of Four Sisters In a Cottage. Amy is currently battling breast cancer and the ribbon you see on my side link is for her.
Amy is a true testament to the strength and beauty of a woman. Although I've never met her I am constantly inspired and often brought to tears by her. She has been blogging about her journey and gives a true insight to what battling cancer can do to your mind and body. Her posts are written with honesty and although she may not truly know it, she inspires every single person who drops by to visit with her and support her.
In a post she wrote a few days ago she expressed that she wasn't sure what her purpose was - she felt that she had something she was supposed to do going through her cancer. What she doesn't know is she IS doing it already. She inspires us, teaches us, bonds and unites us. We respect her, we cheer for her, we admire her honesty and her spirit. I have the utmost respect for Amy as she is battling this dreaded disease. She has chosen to fight! fight! fight! God has put a lot on her plate and she is rising to the occasion. And we, her blogland friends, are behind her 100%.
God Bless you Amy. Thank you for inspiring me every day. To never take a day for granted. To love my family and friends with all of my heart and soul. For allowing me to intimately understand what a cancer patient endures during their fight. Thank-you for renewing in me, my respect for the great strength and fortitude a woman can possess.
Now go kick that cancer's ass! ;)
