I know that I have posted this pic many times on my blog.
It bears repeating today.
These are my painting ladies.
Marie was not able to make this trip in 2009.
We met online around ten years ago and became fast friends.
You can read the link below.
It will introduce them all.
Sadly, this weekend we lost Lesley.
If there was a nucleus, a Mother Hen
to the group...
it was Lesley.
Always happy, always smiling,
always holding us all together.
Checking on us
when we were not around for awhile,
a quick email,
She was our center.
So many words swirling around in my head,
so many memories
of her smile,
her teasing sense of humor,
her love that she shared with all of us.
A reminder of how quickly people pass through our lives
how we need to cherish each moment.
“You have fought the good fight, you have finished your course, you have kept the faith”
2 Timothy 4:7
Lesley and I had talks about our faith,
my comfort is in knowing that
because of our shared belief in Jesus as our Lord and Saviour
that I will see her again someday.
What peace there is to know that someday
she and I will be rejoicing in the beauty of Heaven!
Until then, my dear friend, I will miss you here!
