Every once in a while, you encounter a friend that you just really seem to look up to, and admire. Maybe for their qualities, maybe for their talents, but for whatever reason, you just really think they shine. Kristina is my friend like that.
When my grandmother died, she showed up at my house, with Eric Wright. This was after I had said to everyone that I didn't need company; because I was okay. She came anyway. She is that person. She is that kind soul that has that mother hen instinct to hover over those she cares about. I have benefitted from that hovering.
You know you are an awesome mother & human being when you can honestly say you are close friends to your oldest child's step mom, and your ex husband has no cross words to say about you. That is Kristina.
Tomorrow morning, my dear friend will undergo a double mastectomy. I ask that EVERYONE I know please be in prayer for her, and for her husband, and for the five young children involved. Nothing I have said in this post is padded, or for show. She is what she is, which is an amazing lady. I love her very much; and her family needs her here. Please pray.
