A little Hoot for Amy!!!

Hey, It's all for Amy today. When I received my email from Isabella's Closet, I knew I wanted to say a little about this wonderful friend of ours named Amy. If any of you have followed her sensitive and heart touching blog about dealing with breast cancer, your hearts will forever be linked to this courageous and spunky Midwestern mom and housewife, blogger and friend. I find myself thinking of her throughout the day, saying little prayers for her and for the hundreds of women going through this ordeal. We as friends and readers are so honored to know Amy. I continue to marvel at her honesty toward life and her positive, fighter attitude toward this cruel disease and its formidable treatment. I can close my eyes and see her post from the night before her first treatment, "If anyone can beat this thing, I can," she said. And she can. With the help of fabulous doctors and powerful medicine plus the love and strength of loving family and an omnipotent God, Amy is a survivor. We look forward to the days in the near future when her posts will again be filled with lace and laughter and light hearted cottage charm. But we will forever be changed and strengthened by her account of this battle and its ups and downs. As Amy goes through the last of her chemo treatments, we give her a huge cyber hug... She is a sweetie, and we love her to pieces. Thank you, Isabella, for contacting me... It is a privilege to know people such as Amy and you and others in blog land! Take care, everyone. Hugs to Amy!!!
