It has been perhaps over a year since my last Earthly Angel post. Many of my new followers most likely don't know who these AMAZING people are...
I call them EA'S or Earthly Angels. Now in the past I have written about strangers helping out others just out of kindness. It always amazes. I know some of you are shaking your heads, but they DO EXIST! I personally have seen a few myself.
But today's EA is actually a group of fine people.
I had the pleasure of meeting with my blogger friend and GOOD friend Melissa Bradley from Melissa's Imaginarium. For those of you who don't know Melissa, she was recently diagnosed with malignant cancer and is now going under Chemo. I was pleasantly surprised to see how BEAUTIFUL she looked today. Eyes clear, skin glowing, and hair shining. It thrilled me to see her this way. One would never now she has cancer.
Almost everyone I know has had some encounter with this dreaded, deathly disease. Both my parents had it and my dad died from it. Thankfully each new day brings new ways to combat this disease. It is a war that must be conquered!
As we chatted, Melissa mentioned she's been having some financial problems. She was laid off from her job several months ago and her unemployment has run out. Horrible situation for anyone to be in. A friend of hers created a twitter/Facebook account to help fund her during this trying time. It pleases me to say that over a dozen of her friends have already given their support. These EA's have come to the rescue as I am sure many more will follow.
I was so relieved to see her glowing face as she told me of their generosity. And now it's time for me and the blogging community to step up as well. Today we had talked about creating an anthology, very much like what Nick Wilford did for his son. The topic will be Cancer, how it affected you or a loved one.
I have a great story about my mom and how she reacted when she found out she was diagnosed. This anthology can help so many cancer sufferers, survivors, and their loved ones. So please stay tuned for more information about this anthology. I hope many of you will help in joining this blog hop. I am also offering my services to design the full cover and ebook cover. At some point we will need the help of someone who is experienced in formatting for ebooks. So if you can PLEASE get the word out. Melissa is a wonderful person and can really use our support. She also has several books for sale at her blog if you are not familiar with her work.
I must say she is quite the trooper and keeping up with her wicked sense of humor.
Thank you all for your time and friendship. I means a great deal to me....
Have a FANTASTIC weekend everyone!
