Her name is Kathy. Kathy Addison. She was my best friend Erica’s mom.
Today Kathy finds out whether or not she has breast cancer. I am sitting at my desk, and I want to cry. I love Kathy. I can’t tell you how many meals she cooked me, she is the reason why I love English muffins with both margarine and cream cheese. Yum.
Kathy also has the best laugh.
I didn’t have a mom. Kathy was kind of my substitute mom. She nagged on me just like I was one of her own. I went to Erica’s gramma’s house a lot, it was Kathy’s mom.
Kathy was and still is beautiful. Beautiful.
I can tell you so many memories about Kathy. I remember she was dating Roman, who we called Taco because we didn’t like him. I remember watching a movie where the woman was beat up by her boyfriend, I remember telling “taco” if he ever did that to Kathy, I would kill him myself, I was in 7th grade, I loved her.
I find my heart breaking at just the thought of what Kathy will go through if she has cancer. But at the same time I can feel my heart being healed by a God who can take care of it all. Who can heal her, and love her when she needs it most.
I didn’t walk for nothin’. Each step was a step against cancer and satan.
STOMP! STOMP!! STOMP!!!
Lord, I am asking You, begging You to take care of Kathy, Lord. Please take away this rechid cancer. Lord, healer. Her body and her heart. Lord, I ask that You give the doctors wisdom for her care, I ask that You give Erica peace. I ask that You give the family discernment, but mostly Lord, be with them. Lord, wrap Your arms around them. In Your Son’s Mighty, Healing, Loving Name. AMEN!
Isaiah 53:5 5 But He was wounded for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are healed.
