The surgery to remove the cancerous areas was last week and depending on her doctors, the chemotherapy treatments will begin next month.
I wanted to make her something. Something special. A visual reminder to pray, keep the faith, and look for the color during the dark times.
So I took one of the unfinished wood crosses we sell at the crafts store and transformed it into this.....
Decorative papers were cut into varying strips, then carefully glued one at a time directly onto the wood. I used the most colorful and sparkly patterns I had. One even looks like faux snake skin. Cool!
If anything, she'll have a F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S way to ward off vampires!
And I like to think if Jesus walked the earth today that He'd love glitter too and I'd find Him rummaging through the clearance section of the crafts store. Imagine the things He could create!
The backside which I lined with felt!
But in all seriousness, this particular coworker is tough and I know she'll put up a solid fight and bounce back from this.
It reminds me of what one of my uncle's doctors said to him when he was battling cancer: ."Faith and prayer are stronger than medicine. They'll keep you going."
I'll be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers, Tiffany!
