A Wonderful Woman, A Wonderful Friend

My husband and I had just moved into the heart of the city when I first met Brownie Rose. It was like her to be the first to introduce herself and we became fast friends. She had a tender heart and compassion for those around her. She was always willing to be a friend to those who had none.

Because of her kindness, we went to meetings together, we made meals for each other and even cleaned each other’s homes. Back to back, we had children. She had her third, I had just one. She welcomed me into her family, including me in special family events and birthdays.

We both moved away.

Calling became more and more less frequent, but somehow when the calls came through, it was like we had never been apart.

She comforted me when I found out my son had autism, I comforted her when she told me about her son’s eye disease. We were both in this together. She is a true friend.

I would now like to introduce you to my friend. She is an amazing woman.
She is also blind.
She has just finished her college degree and is raising three children, some with disabilities of their own. She is starting a blog to help those around her understand what it is like to live with disabilities. She is doing it to make a difference in the world. I cannot tell you how highly I value my relationship with this woman. She is truly amazing. Please visit her blog and find out for yourself what a great woman she is. Click here.

Sounds like a wonderful woman. Inspiring. Thanks for sharing the link.

BTW, I keep trying to comment on your other blog, but it never goes through. I don't think it likes me. =(

I'll keep reading anyway, though.
