Hero (for Kim)

In your memory, Kim (blog  I shaved my legs for this? ).

Thank you for all the support, inspiration, and sanity you gave me when I was diagnosed with the brain tumor and waiting to figure out how bad it was going to be.  And, you never stopped giving afterward either.

See ya on the Other Side someday, my Warrior Sistah.

Mariah Carey - Hero lyrics

Artist:
Mariah Carey

There's a hero If you look inside your heart You don't have to be afraid Of what you are There's an answer If you reach into your soul And the sorrow that you know Will melt away

And then a hero comes along With the strength to carry on And you cast your fears aside And you know you can survive So when you feel like hope is gone Look inside you and be strong And you'll finally see the truth That a hero lies in you

It's a long road When you face the world alone No one reaches out a hand For you to hold You can find love If you search within yourself And the emptiness you felt Will disappear

And then a hero comes along With the strength to carry on And you cast your fears aside And you know you can survive So when you feel like hope is gone Look inside you and be strong And you'll finally see the truth That a hero lies in you

Lord knows Dreams are hard to follow But don't let anyone Tear them away Hold on There will be tomorrow In time You'll find the way

And then a hero comes along With the strength to carry on And you cast your fears aside And you know you can survive So when you feel like hope is gone Look inside you and be strong And you'll finally see the truth That a hero lies in you

Thanks again, Kim. 

be well,
Dawn

((((((((((((((  Dawn  ))))))))))))))))))  I'm so sorry!   I just found out a moment ago..  I was hoping there would be another entry since the last one she wrote.  She was a beautiful person; and a true hero--you picked the perfect song.  Julie

((Dawn)) What a nice tribute for her. This Christmas has been tough, lost Lahoma right before Christmas and now Kim, they were the first to befriend me in Jland and they have remained constant throughout the years...I shall miss them both tremendously. I feel so bad for their families, its hard. It's amazing the amount of sorrow you can feel even though you never met the person in real life, yet I feel that I knew them very intimately as a sister or mother....take care...love, Sandi

Hi Dawn,
How sad ... I didn't know Kim but my heart goes out to her friends and family.  I just read her last entry and it was heartbreaking.  She went through so much and you can see in her blog that she remained strong throughout her ordeal.  It sure puts everything in perspective.  Be well.
Best,
Marty
