Yesterday we learned that our dear friend has had her cancer return. For the first time in weeks, I suddenly have a very strong desire to be home with her and her family. I want to be there to hold her hand (and her husband's hand). I feel helpless, even more so being 8,417 miles away. 

She is a spark plug, a life force, a fire cracker. I know that she has this. I just wish I was there to tell her face to face.
