Many people who visit my blog, also read ELLEN and CURTIS. I started reading their blogs well over two years ago. They are a wonderful couple who only met later in life. Theirs is a love to be envied by many. Their regular entries and posts shared their lives with their readers. Through their writings, I and many others, have come to love these wonderful, down to earth, caring people.
This is Ellen, the day she received 1000 cranes from Bloggers from around the world. Each one folded with a prayer. What an honor to have been part of that project.
Sadly, Ellen has been battling cancer for a couple of years. She fought courageously and has gone on living and making the most of her life. She kept right on giving to others through her generous and loving ways. She and Curtis took every opportunity to spend quality time together. Ellen has become weaker and is no longer able to get to the computer, Curtis is reading her comments and emails to her at her bedside. He is looking after her the best he can, but as you can imagine, He is suffering just as much as Ellen. I am grateful for the time he takes on his blog to update us on her condition and his own state of mind.
My thoughts and prayers are with them both. I pray for her suffering to be eased and continued strength for Curtis. For both of them I pray for Peace and assurance that God is with them.
Brian put it so well in his AUGUST 5th post, encouraging visitors to stop by and leave them comments.
