Megan is my friend and I love her!

I have had probably the worst week and a half since my diagnosis, Lupus and I were having knock down drag outs. The pain levels were the worst they had ever been, so much so that it was tough to even keep smiling. I was trying so hard to stay above it all in the positive zone, but I was crashing fast like a plane going down in a field. My oldest son Brett was with me and his eyes were filled with tears while I was sharing my frustration over trying to tolerate the pain in my body.

Then I noticed that there was a package on the table addressed to me...

Awhile back I posted about my friend Megan from 1 funky woman and how when I am stuck in bed with the "L" monster she brightens my day with her wit, charm and ever so funny stories.

So all of a sudden I forgot about the pain and started to open my package...

Megan sent the cutest card that made me laugh so much since I think her kids are terrific and of course she offered one up to me as a gift...

the tears began to flow as I read her words...

Kate, I've been thinking about you lately and hoping that the

Lupus monster isn't getting the best of you.

The rest of her words I will keep inside my heart,  from my heart

Megan is truly a gift to me.

I received all of these wonderful stones and that

beautiful magnet that is completely me all over

I wanted to share how someone can touch your heart

through these blogs.  Someone you have never met

can actually love you and be your friend

  then on the bleakest day bring you a rainbow!!

Megan is my friend and I love HER

and my sweetie pie son Brett who holds my heart

thank you for wiping away mommy's tears, I love you son

I love you all
 Kate xoxo

You know, when I saw you on Saturday, you didn't look "yourself". Then I didn't see you on Sunday or Monday and thought something might be wrong. I meant to email you, but the time got away. Sorry the pain was getting the best of you. It's funny how things always happen for a reason. Such as the timing of you receiving Megan's package when you were feeling so down! Sometimes that is all it takes is to know others care to make us all feel better. You take care my friend,

Good morning Kate! I am so sorry to hear you are struggling with mean and nasty L this week. That just sucks! No other way to put it! I'm sure your care package from Megan made your day! Thanks for checking in on me! I'm glad you have your son and family to help you when you are having a rough day! You are blessed with love!

Oh Kate I am so sorry to hear the "L" monster has reared its ugly head. I didn't even know you had lupus since I am just getting to know you. I tell everyone about your $47.00 couch...LOL! I am sending prayers up to our Heavenly Father this a.m. for you! You have a friend here in Ohio too.

Oh Kate, I knew I hadn't heard from ya in awhile, but shame on me for not checking on you!

I am so sorry you're hurting. I'd kick lupus' a$$ if I could for you!
Thank goodness you have the love and support of your family, but's not fair.

I wish I could take some of it for you, somehow physically lessen your pain.

You are loved, I hope you know how much.

I am so, so sorry you have to go through this struggle. I can not imagine how hard it must be. I'll keep praying that your episodes are less often and shorter in duration. How comforting to have your son be there for you! May God continue to help you recover from this episode so that you can get back to finding and creating beautiful things!

Love and Blessings,

Kate, I don't know if you've read my post on the Bible Study Blog. Go by if you can. I think I know a little of what you are going through, just a little. Never forget we all love you and hold you up in prayer. There's a light at the end of this tunnel, I promise.
love you,
