PRAYER REQUEST FOR LAURA: You know I hate Drama Kings or Queens, but I am asking for your prayers today and for the forseeable future. On Friday afternoon, I learned that I have joined the ever-growing group of American women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. As so many breast cancer patients will tell you, it all came as a total shock. I am blessed to be surrounded by people who love me–my family, a wonderful fiance (if he thinks he’s going to get out of marrying me because of this little blib, he’s sadly mistaken!), my friends, and my church. I am absolutely blown away by how helpful and kind everyone has been–including total strangers who have experienced the same rollercoaster of emotions. The sisterhood of breast cancer survivors is inspiring. I am truly blessed. On Tuesday I will have an operation and within a few days will know more about the future. I am hopeful for a bright future and a “normal” life (well, scratch the “normal” part). Anyway, people have gone through much worse, and I know I’ll obliterate this. I am thanking you in advance for your prayers. You are my family. And remember, I’ll be back sooner than you think.
I have spent many a long drive back from consulting trips at night listening to one of my favorite “radio addictions”. Laura made the drives much more bearable and is probably very much responsible for keeping me on the road and focused. Her skits on “Lie of the week” and her John Kerry theme song promotion brought laughter to me personally when all I could do is wish my ride was over. As an aside “Just a Gigolo” was perfect for Kerry.
I would just like to give back a small piece of the incite and sense of humor to Laura during this difficult time for her. God Bless you Laura and get well soon so that we can all enjoy hearing your wit and sarcasm as you dissect the Left like only you can.
God speed and God Bless.
