I can't sit still with the knowledge of my childhood friend who I know now to be in a terminal stage with cancer. She and I carpooled together to gymnastics for 10 years. We grew up together experiencing loyalty, camaraderie, team, love, support, unity, and the art of war through our sport of gymnastics and being true honest to goodness friends.
Yet, I know a secret. I learned of a dream she wishes to experience.
I have a calling right now to help my dear friend. The only thing I know I can do is provide a memorable experience for her. An experience that is miraculous and profound much like the one she shall make for herself and her own life.
Her dream is to marry her fiance. I know so because she entered to win a wedding in the Mission Inn Resort and Club via the Orlando magazine.
My idea is to create a fund for her to support her dream weather or not she wins the wedding. I can imagine an abundant fund so there is also money for her children too. Her children are her air right now.
There is a part of all of us that unites just as she and I did as children. It is surreal to be the one writing this, searching for the words to say. The truth is, however, this is life. I get it now. We are here in this precious experience to make of it what we wish, and to fulfill your own wish is truly to fulfill the wishes of others.
Thank you for reading through this memo. If you wish to take the next step and donate to my friends 'Dream' fund, I know she will have an experience of peace, gratitude, and happiness she has been greatly lacking for a long time.
I hope you are well! Take care of your self and your loved ones. Enjoy the beautiful world we are experiencing!
Peace, Love and Gratitude,
