Once in a Lifetime

Years ago, when I was struggling in and with life, the Lord gave me a friend. We listened to each other, cried with each other, prayed with each other.  Even though we have lived 1900 miles away for 20 years, I still consider her my best friend.  I have never found another one so precious and important to me.  We don't talk on the phone often.  She is in the beginning stages of memory loss.  I was able to travel to see her last year for the first time in 10 years.  She is in her 80's now so maybe it will be my last time.  I made this card with her in mind and will again, as always, write a note inside telling her how important she has been and is in my life.

The spotlight coloring was symbolic of her standing out in my life.
The image is GKD coloring sheets.  The sentiment is SU stamp.
