The evil demon strikes again. Another woman in my life is dealing with cancer. Very similar to what my mother is dealing with. This woman really helped me process everything with my mother. She told me just before I went back to Illinois to see my mother that every mother should have a son like me. She was there for me when she found out my mother didn't appreciate the song I wrote for her. This woman is someone I look up to and hold in the absolute highest regard. She's beautiful, strong, funny and very proud of her family. She speaks very highly of her own kids and has made a good life for herself. In some ways, she reminds me of my mother and when I listen to her speak of her kids, I can't help but wish that sometime, somewhere in the world, my mother will speak so highly of me to someone else. She loves to read my blog, loves my jokes, loves having me around. All the things I wish my of own mother. I could barely face her today when I heard the news. Like my mother, she's strong and she'll put up one DAMN good fight. I will keep her in my thoughts and prayers, as well as her family. Who knows, maybe I'll write a song for her. God knows that a woman such as her most certainly deserves one.
