One significant change in my life that has occurred this year because of blogging is that I am now part of a Cystic Fibrosis community. It is precious to me and has brought me a great deal of joy. Tonight I recognize the fact that when you are part of a community, you also hurt when anyone in that community hurts. I learned today that Robyn, a beautiful woman w/CF I met through blogging, passed away today. I felt a strange connection to her...not only did she have CF, but she was a military wife. And her daughter's name, Lola, is what my children call my mother. It breaks my heart that she did not receive her badly needed transplant in time, and I ask you to pray for her family as they begin the grieving process.
