For Ann - my dear friend.....

Several months ago I posted this poem for a dear friend who lost their father to cancer, several weeks after I lost my dad. A very dear friend of mine gave this to me when I lost my older brother 7 years ago after a long battle with diabetes.

Today I am once again posting this for my dear friend Ann. A friend who I have never met face to face but a friend that I have felt like I have known my entire life. I swear I believe that she was one of my sisters in a past life.

Ann is an incredible woman with incredible strength and now I know who she gets that strength from. So for you my dear Anndi pants... I love you...
One night a man had a dream.
He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Across the sky flashed scenes from his life.
For each scene he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand;
one belonged to him, and the other to the Lord.
When the last scene of his life flashed before him,
he looked back at the footprints in the sand.
He noticed that many times along the path of his life
there was only one set of footprints.
He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life.
This really bothered him and he questioned the Lord about it.
"Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you,
you'd walk with me all the way.
But I have noticed that at the worst times in my life,
there is only one set of footprints.
How could you leave me when I needed you the most?
"The Lord replied "
"My precious, precious child,
I love you and would never leave you.
During your times of suffering and
when you see only one set of footprints,
it was then that I carried you."
