I normally use this blog to share with you all the crazy/silly/funny happenings in our little family. But tonight I come here with a serious request for prayer.
Tomorrow morning, I'll be driving a very good friend down to Rainrock to walk with her through the intake process. This will be her second stay at Rainrock, and all I can say at this point is that she's very, very sick right now and needs to get better. If she gets any worse, well, she really can't, she won't survive it. Please pray for her and also for me, as it will be a difficult and emotional day for many reasons. I'm so scared for my friend, but I know she will be in the right hands within the next 24 hours. Also, just being back there is going to be really hard for me. The one time I visited back in July, I had to leave early because I couldn't stop crying. It's a very emotional place for me to be.
"Friend", you know who you are - and I know you check my blog. You are in-flight on your way here to Portland as I type this. I love you. I care for you. I want more than anything for you to find healing and hope. Please be strong, I know you can do this, I believe in you. I know you are still in there somewhere and you can hear me, although you're very sick right now.
Breathe. It's going to be okay. And know that I am always, always here for you. And if you need to be reminded of all the people who love and support you...
