This has been a rough few days...
It is time for us to hook up our horses and circle our wagons around some of our dear sisters who need us the most right now.

Robin, Rhymee, Mena, Denise, Marsha, Katz & Sarah, Gwenn, Pennylane, Dianne, Shelliks and all who need some love and care from the sisterhood.

I will take the first watch.

(edited to add that since we started the circle, we have lost many angels mentioned above and others who were inside the circle.  Nicki/Chemosabi kept watch over the circle many nights for us. Now, she will watch over the campfire with the angels she joined tonight. Rest in Peace you beautiful friends, we love you all and will never forget you.)

OK, I need to get some sleep. Anyone on the night shift want to take over with my shotgun? I promise to sleep with one eye open, in case my sisters need anything.

The fire is burning reflecting on the faces of our sisters, wood stacked to the side for the night, coffee and water for the hot chocolate is on, voices are getting softer and some are down for the night.

The joy and comfort of these sisters brings tears to my eyes.

Lord, we lift our friends who are facing this mountain and have a steep climb to the top. We are all hurting for them and as we share in their fears we are also realizing some of our own. Bless them, heal them, give them strength for the days ahead, may they feel only the peace and comfort you can give and may they know their friend is holding their hand in the darkness and lonliness of the night. May tomorrow bring hope. May they feel the love of the many sisters who too will walk to the top of the mountain with them.

Rest well, sisters. We have wraped you in love and prayers.

Brenda, thank you for those beautiful words. I have pisted them above, everyone should see this.
Thanks for the dancing cowboys too. One minute I am crying the next I am laughing.
I'm here now, just got home from work. I am ready to take over for a little while and pray with all my heart. As soon as I grab a cup of jo and let one of those cowboy twirl this little lass round a few times.

The night is quiet, rest well.You are loved, you are loved.
And loved too, the faithful defneders.Brenda, you are absolutely beautiful!Thank you!!With such defending sisters, how can everything not be all right?
NoSurrender, I hope you have gone to sleep.I will finish up the shift.The air is crisp, the stars are bright, even the girls who can't sleep are sleeping!I'm comfortable, but vigalent.By the time I sleep, the sun will be coming up, morning shift will be here.You all can party merrily with those cowboys, and make coffee on the campfires!(Owls and bats are used to noisy sleeping!)
Rest well everyone.Love,j

Got up, showered and I am also ready to face the day- kicking some cancer ass! Stand back, what's that saying about a "....woman's fury"
