When I say I’ve had a tough week I do not mean,
· I have lost my husband and soul mate to a fatal heart attack at age forty nine
· Nor have I had to face the man who stabbed me twenty one times in court
· Neither have I had get through my life knowing I am a victim of violence and sexual abuse as a child
But, for three of my friends, this is their reality and I am so proud they have risen to their challenging lives with such stoicism and dignity.
Losing my home, my hair and my money pales into insignificance when compared with what life has dealt these women yet when we meet, we rarely do anything but laugh.
My thoughts are with you girls.
