My Yellow Rose

Today I am waiting for some news from my best friend's mother. We've known each other since 1975; ninth grade to be exact. I spent over three-fourths of my adolescence at Patti's house. Sis(that's what most everyone calls Patti's mom) is somewhat acerbic, yet loving; apathetic, yet passionate and caustic yet sweet. She has also been a constant, fierce mother-figure in my life for over thirty years. This family treats me as family no matter the mistakes I have made. Last Wednesday,
Sis had a lumpectomy and the lymph nodes removed from under her left arm. We are waiting for information as to whether the cancer has spread to her lymph nodes or not.
I am praying HARD for good news obviously, as she is such an integral part of my life.
Say a prayer for Sis, and send good thoughts her way.
She loves yellow roses; the flower of friendship.

She is in my thoughts and prayers. You also!
Let us know how she is doing.
I shall light a candle.
