I understand how you feel...my dad was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor one month ago, pretty much out of the blue.

There have been a lot of people calling who live out of town and they ask, "What can I do? I feel terrible because I am not able to physically be there."

You can pray, and pray often. That is the best gift you could ever give anyone...to pray for them.

Such wonderful advice from all of you.
Thank you.
I have dealt with illness before, its just the distance thing that Im struggling with as far as me helping her is concerned. But I have done and will continue to try your suggestions.
Thank you again.

i know what you are going through. last valentine's day a good friend of mine died of AIDS at the age of 26. i didn't know if i could ever get over it. i knew he had it. i had seen him sick before, but i always had the hope that he would take to the medication that constantly made him ill. when he died i was so upset. upset with him for being irresponsible (though it was in a time when AIDS was unhread of) and mostly with God for taking such a great man. but you know what? God wanted some time with josh too. it was josh's time to visit God and be happy and healthy. i know he's doing well now. i KNOW it. but you just need to remind yourself that God truly does work in mysterious ways. learn the lessons of life, for without them, you will have no life to speak of.


It's the puppets that pull the strings.

*You're very kind. Most people laugh when they see my googly eye.*
