Walking Bentley and Sachi Update!

Today was an awesome day. I went over to spend time with Sachi, my good friend who has cancer and who I mentioned in an earlier post. We had a nice lunch at her house with another friend of hers, who I adore now that I've gotten to know her and we just had some fun girly time. Also, I wanted to let you all know that the new round of chemo treatment she is on seems to be doing something positive! They cannot find the original tumor anymore and nothing new has surfaced so that is wonderful news! Her strength is back, she is exercising and taking walks and just looks great all around! I loved seeing her like this. Thank you all for your prayers! They are definitely helping. Prayer is a wonderful thing, isn't it?

I also had the chance to take Mr. Bentley for a walk again. I love our walks together. Today we passed by a small little apple tree and try as I might, I could only find a single green apple. It just hung there all alone...all by itself. It kept screaming for me to pick it but I was afraid that the neighbor would see and Bentley and I would have to go tearing up the street, running from the neighbor. I'm sure Bentley would have tripped me at some point and well...I settled for a picture instead.

Maybe if it's there next time I walk Bentley I'll take it and run! Hope you all are having a great weekend!

I'm also glad that your friend is doing so well! I think that apple has your name on it and you might as well pick it. ;> We've noticed how many people don't actually pick/eat the fruits they grow...the trees must have been there from previous owners, and current owners don't care for them.

That is so AWESOME that Sachi is doing better!!! Oh what a relief and how wonderful to be able to see her well. God is good. Mr. what a terrific name and he looks like his name too. That is the craziest thing to see that lone apple just dangling there by itself!! I would have wanted to pick it too! Did you think of Adam and Eve? You are Eve and Mr. Bentley I guess would have to be Adam! Great post and thanks for popping over to mine. I am feeling are a wonderful girl with a big heart.

Fantastic that the treatments seem to be working! And kudos to you for not being afraid to be there...I know that can be hard.

I have a dear friend who has battled for years. She amazes me with her optimism and energy. I will think of your friend in my prayers for her.
