your body

A little bit earlier than planned
( it's still September and not October )
I want to tell you :
to be aware of your body
and to take good care of it so that you enjoy it for many years to come.

you can get the feeling your body is letting you down
is cheeting on you

I went to one of my dearest friends today
for a little support :
she is starting her nasty fight against breast cancer !
She's rounding up all the support she can get
and that's the best way to do it.
Don't try to do this alone,
get help from every dear person that's around you,
that still leaves enough, you have to do alone

M, take care
we will be walking right beside you all the way
and come out of this together !

for the art-quilt exhibition "Uit de naad" in Alkmaar)

  1. it's good to know she has strength and support with her.

  2. A beautiful artwork, and an important message.
    I wish for your friend, (and you, as her friend and supporter!) lots of healing energy...This sickness creates one of those life pauses, that makes all of us close by take a breath, reflect, and grown stronger...

  3. The best of health and wellness to your friend. I love that quilt!

  4. Sending healing and strength thoughts to your friend. I had a friend go through this last year. In a couple of weeks, my sister will do the Avon Walk for breast cancer, second year doing so.
    Take care of one another....
