My Friend Dena

Dena of Swaddle Cottage, wrote this last year. She has a new blog..Word Pies.. filled with her writing, I hope you'll visit her
This is for all the ladies in pink


She heard the doctors
Her spine stiffened
Her resolve formed
So what..?
She ties on a pink bandana
And manages her mascara
Her smile like magic in the mirror
So strong
There’s little left of her hair
But it will come in thicker
She focuses on that
So positive
Her appetite is minimal
Yet she manages family meals
Even if she can’t always cook
So diligent
There’s pain
Sometimes too much
She rarely complains
So brave
We watch her fight
Marvel at her strength
And we all know she’s
So pretty…
In pink

    My friend, Charolotte, is going through breast cancer treatment. I shared with her about you and I believe that the two of you could share your journey and, perhaps, help each other out with information.

    God Bless you and Dena,
