For days now (has it been weeks?) I’ve had a bit of writers block. This post is my effort to become un-stuck. Life has been very busy for Lavender & Lotus, but there is something else that has kept me preoccupied. A friend of my family has been very sick. I’ve struggled with whether or not to write about her – trying to maintain a positive thread here – but now I think it’s time to get real. Heather was 27 when she was first diagnosed, and a single mother of 3 young children. She put up a good fight over these past 5 years, and inspired all of us with her humor and strength through the process.
Heather received her wings two days ago. This post is in honor of her. May she always live on in our hearts. <3
