This isn't that minute

Wendy has put it on Twitter, so I feel able to share it with you.

Wendy, beloved daughter-in-law, dear friend, loved like a daughter, sharer of good times, welcoming, indulgent and patient host of mothers-in-law, generous and thoughtful sender of videos of Lux and Cece opening their birthday presents that I paid for and Wendy went out and bought after consultation, expert maker of Bloody Marys and maragaritas, expert drinker of same, fun-time companion, sad time companion, fantastic wife and mother, inspiring and compassionate yoga teacher, all of the above and so much more that I can't think of at 6 in the morning but I will think of later and be annoyed that I didn't put down....has breast cancer. 

She reads my blog and the comments below, so if you'd like to send her a message, please do. 

And here, 5,000 miles away, I am going to be rock-like (don't scoff) and to try hard to be the best support someone can be from so far away. I'm channeling my emotions into stocking the freezer, because they are all coming over for a Thanksgiving visit before Wendy starts her treatment.

She's a peach.
