My Dear Sweet Friend Gert


I had a special request from
a very special friend
that I met here in blogland.
Her name is Gert.
She lives with her hubby
and her dear little dog, Rusty.
She has a blog called, 

Gert is asking for prayers.
Let me tell you-she is not a person
to ask for anything.
So....if she is asking....you know
she needs them.
Gert struggles with MS
but she is one of the most upbeat,
positive people I have ever known.
But right now she is in
terrible pain and they are
trying to figure out exactly why
she is suffering so badly.
She is in the hospital but they
are going to have to move
her into an aftercare facility.
I know she is apprehensive
about the move and her health.

Please say a prayer for her
and, if you have a moment,
please pop by her blog here
and just say Hello.
I know it will cheer her up.
Thanks so much.
I treasure each of you!
your photo name
