I'm sorry I haven't been taking part with things lately.

My good friend and neighbor has cancer for the fourth time in two years. This time there is nothing they can do. They told her she has six months to two years, tops. She's lost about 50 pounds in the last six weeks and I'm trying to fatten her up a little bit. I cook for her family, (Husband who works 12 hours a day and son who works and is 16) every other night. So it's four days a week for Entree, salad and veggies and dessert. I've been doing this for 6 weeks now and I don't see any weight gain at all. But she loves my cooking. Her husband, loves my cooking also. Even the picky 16 year old loves it. I'll probably do it for another six weeks and then I'll ask him if he wants me to do it from then on, he would have to give me a grocery card. I don't mind doing it, but my grocery bill is outrageous. I visit with her for one hour each day so that we don't miss any time that she has left. I help with here house work. She's so weak. The cancer is in like seven different places now. It's really sad. I just love her and it breaks my heart every day, but I also don't want to miss a day.

Thankfully, Secret Santa is starting in December. I'm looking forward to that. I will make the time, because it's something I truly love. Is everyone going to take part this year? I really need people to do this. I can beg if I have to. LOL There are writers that I haven't seen a Sentinel story from in a long while. Maybe we could see them write something this year. Secret Santa is so important. Not just to me, but to everyone that joins this list. Ainm is an angel. Here is the link to the main page if you're interested. Read it all and join in the fun. Please???

Have a good week. I'll try to do better with joining in.

Hugs, Patt
