My friend, Jeanie



I have a friend named Jeanie who holds a very special place in my heart. She nicknamed me "Scrappy" and we've worked together for the past seven years. She makes beautiful jewelry and she is always helping others, cheering people up, and she makes the world a better place because she's such a good person.

Why am I sharing all this? Because Jeanie can use some good wishes and lots of prayers, too! She has endured some tough times as a single mom and she has had some health issues as well. This past weekend, after going to the doctor because she got this weird numb sensation on the right side of her body, she ended up going to the hospital. They thought she had a stroke brought on by very high blood sugar. She was diagnosed as diabetic and today she was told she has Multiple Sclerosis (MS).

I know that Jeanie will be okay, but a lot has happened and she can use some prayers to help her regain her strength. If she manages her stress, takes care of herself, takes her medication and has faith, I know that she will be fine. It won't happen overnight, but I pray that she finds peace and serenity to get through this. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.

Thank you!
