Please stop over to Karen's blog and wish her a HAPPY BIRTHDAY TODAY!
Last year, I stumbled upon Katie's story (Karen's daughter) through another Caring Bridge member's site. I was so captivated by this beautiful young soul and was awed by her maturity and grace as she faced the most difficult journey with cancer. Katie's story stayed with me from that point on.
Fast forward several months later. I had commented on someone else's blog who was going through some difficult times and Karen read my comment which led her to my blog. (Blog tag) Well when I went to her blog and saw the picture of her and Katie on the front page I got chills. One does not forget that face. So in a very unusual way, we've sort of crossed paths twice. Which tells me that we were meant to meet and become lifetime friends.
And is it any coincidence that she just so happens to live right outside Seattle? She will be the ONE person I know up there aside from Tom's work people. And she is the ONLY reason I have yet to sign divorce papers and stay here in California. Although more on this later. Not the divorce papers, but the staying here in California bit.
Anyway! PLEASE stop by Karen's blog and wish her a special Birthday Wish. Her day started out with a power outage and I tend to think that's not just a coincidence either...
