Kindred Spirits: Blythe's Story

Kindred Spirits: Blythe's Story

We are starting a new series here at Mundane Faithfulness—Kindred Spirits—in which friends of Kara’s tell their stories. I love the term kindred spirits, which was introduced to me in the Anne of Green Gables books as a child. Because of Kara’s friendship with Autumn, which they always likened to Anne and Diane, I now always think of them when I hear the term. But I especially think of Kara because, as one speaker put it at her memorial service, so many of us considered her our best friend. She made each of her friends feel valued and loved and known. And we each have our own story of how our friendship came to be and the impact it has had on us; in fact, those of us who never met Kara in person have your own story, too. So let’s enjoy the stories together…

So, when I realized I only had a month left with this hair of mine, I decided it was time for some fun! First I decided to cut it off and donate it, and Jason and I also decided it would be less shocking for the kids when I actually do lose it. My oncologist made a good point. He said it would be better on our plumbing. Very practical. I like that in a doctor.
