On Her Way To Better Health



When I began blogging, a reader emailed asking if I wanted help finding photos for my posts. I was blogging fairly regularly and
found finding the exact photos for a particular post very time-consuming. I was picky and this offer really sounded wonderful. Enter my friend L. She began slowly and steadily sending photos each and every day. I kept the ones I found to my liking. I would request photos of a specific nature and, boom, I would have many to choose from. 

We have talked on the phone. She especially enjoyed speaking with Jack. I have honored her birthday with small gifts and we enjoy a small gift exchange at Christmas. Then I received an email telling me there would be no photos for awhile as she would be undergoing lung cancer treatment. 

We exchange brief emails and I still know she is there. While away, I sent some photos of our adventures. Yesterday she emailed that she had about two more weeks of treatment and she was feeling much better. Hooray!

I debated whether to tell the world of what was happening. Those who read this blog know her work......... her photos. She must have some secret places to find just the right ones for me. 

I asked if I could share the news of both her illness and her steady recovery to better health. She said yes. 

So, my friends here at New Twist, I am asking you to send Leah a bit of love, humor, encouragement and good wishes right here in the comment section. A small favor for a wonderful, healing lady.

  15. When I first started reading here at New Twist, I came to know you simply as "L." You have always gifted Meredith and all her readers with your eye for beautiful photographs.

    Will continue to send prayers and virtual hugs your way, Leah.
