For Day 6, I am giving the gifts of prayer, support and love to my friend Jenni
. She is the same girlfriend that brought me on board to participate in this 29gift challenge - I told you all how wonderful she is in my Day 1
Today, Jenni is mourning the loss of her friend Tim who has just passed away from cancer. He was 35 years old. Having lost friends to cancer before I can both sympathize and empathize with what she's going through. Losing anyone is hard, but especially when, like Jenni and Tim, they have been friends for so long.
Since joining the 29gifts community I have been blown away by the encouragement and love that strangers will send to one another. It's so easy to get wrapped up in your own world, in your family and in your problems but this community is a social environment that holds you accountable for doing good - and I just LOVE that. My blogs are a great outlet for my feelings but your comments on them just make my heart swell up with love. I read and cherish each and every uplifting word.
Jenni and I live apart from each other (she's in Colorado and I'm in Georgia) so I can't be there to wrap my arms around her and hug her through her pain. So I'm asking you, my 29gifts community, to please join me in sharing love and support with Jenni today. You can view her profile by clicking here
Jenni-belle, I hope you know how much this Georgia girl adores you. Keep your chin up know that Tim will always be with you.....that he will live on through you......and that today isn't good-bye.
