A Day of Silence

For me, on this blog anyways.

For those of you who read Barbara's blog, you know that her husband has been battling Multiple Myeloma now for a very long time. He lost his battle yesterday.

I had the immense pleasure of meeting Barbara in Chicago. And though we didn't have a lot of time together, she managed to say some things to me, that although I had heard them before...really hit home. I believe that her words will play a part in changing my life. I have told her as much before.

It makes me very sad to think of the pain that she and her family are going through. My heart goes out to her.


  1. Nicely said Amy, she's a lovely woman. My heart goes out to here.

  2. Thanks Amy - have been thinking about her all night...

  3. I was crying for her last night. This just breaks my heart. She is a beautiful person, inside and out.

  4. My heart goes out to Barbara and her family.

  5. I'll be praying for her. So heart breaking. :(

  6. Whoa, me too. She said some things to me that I think about ALL the time. This just plain sucks.

    P.S. I just noticed that today marks your 2 year anniversary. Congratulations, lady!
