giving thanks #9

i'm thankful for painting pottery especially with jaime.

it is one of my favorite things to do.  i go at least once a year, usually in november to paint someone in my family a christmas present.  it is so relaxing and it soothes my soul.  i tend to go by myself and spend a few hours there.  this time i went with my dear friend jaime.

we met in school and we were totally meant to be friends. we had 3 out of 4 of our classes together in just the first semester.  she is a serious rockstar.  last fall, as our last year of school was starting, jaime was diagnosed with brain cancer.  she had surgery right away, had radiation, and chemotherapy and she is now in the clear.  hooray!  while doing treatment she managed to still come to school, pass her classes, and do her internship.  she is amazing, i tell you... amazing!  she rocked cancer and grad school at the same time.  i'm so glad she's my friend and that i was able to witness the miracles in her life.  you're an inspiration jaime!
