October is all about PINK....


Magpie Tales

Mag #138


Sick Woman, 1665, by Jan Steen

She is strong
She can fight
She will not let
her cancer win;
 
He is strong
He is there
He will hold her hand
while she fights;
 
They are strong
They have love
They have friends
to share their fight.
 
For Micki
 
 
 

 
 

Laurel.  No "tale" today...reality.

  4. I love your words. The woman in this painting is certainly well dressed to be sick. And is she smiling? I have a feeling she's pregnant.

  11. Very inspiring. I have an aunt who is a breast cancer survivor. The best medicine are prayers, faith, and friends who support all the way. Thank you for this post, Laurel :)
