{life} is beautiful

{life}
is beautiful

several weeks ago i posted about my friend, donna, who was just beginning her battle with breast cancer. this beautiful lady is now in the throes of chemo, more surgeries and all that accompanies the fight against breast cancer. i cannot express how much of a blessing donna has been to me over the years, and what an inspiration she is to me now. her heart is so beautiful. she is courageous and encouraging and hopeful. when she came over today for some baldie pictures, we laughed so hard we nearly wet our pants. she reminds me that through life's toughest moments there is joy that is found in the Lord, and that each moment we have is a blessing.

donna pulled out a bunch of her hats for one of the pictures and showed me this scarf. it had been her mom's. she told me how when she pulled it out of the storage box when she started losing her hair, it still smelled just like her mom. another reminder to cherish my mommy, too.


if you think to pray for my dear friend, it would mean so much to me, and to her. thank you so much!
if you'd like to see the rest of the pictures from the shoot you can check them out here.

Since day 1, she has been in my prayers! She is definitely my "HERO." She is like me in the way, she just takes what life throws at her and "deals" with it. Never letting it get you down. THAT is what makes us strong! Donna, you keep up the fight! You WILL win. Blessings to you.
