ABC Wednesday is a word meme with participants from around the world. Our Host, Mrs. Nesbitt hails from Great Britain. We started with the letter, "A" and each week we post something in regards to the next letter of the alphabet. We are now in our second year, round 4! This week's letter is, "T".

Someone that I am very close to is loosing her battle with cancer. This Sunday, she was placed in hospice. This is all happening so rapidly, that those of us close to her are bewildered. Shocked. Stunned. But all the same taking care of what needs to get taken care of in the time that is left. I am doing my best to hold myself together to get through it all. I will collapse when it is all over. In the meantime, the tears are accumulating somewhere within me, waiting for the floodgates to open.
