Don Wood Posted December 10, 2003 Share Posted December 10, 2003 A number of months ago, while Lucie was in the midst of chemo and radiation treatments, a woman approached me at Wendy's where I was having lunch alone. (Lucie was taken by a friend to treatment that day.) The lady said, "Pardon me, but you are usually here with a woman who looks like she is taking chemo treatments. Is she your wife?" I said, "Yes, on both counts. She is being treated for non-small cell lung cancer." "Well", she said, "my husband died of lung cancer less than two years ago." I asked her to join me and we got acquainted. The next time I met the lady at Wendy's, my wife was with me. So the three of us shared stories, and we have now become fast friends. The woman noticed that I had a Christian fish symbol on my car, and so we have shared out faith as well. She made a cross-stitch book mark for Lucie, and we gave her a fish symbol for her car. She has sent cards to Lucie and me from time to time, wishing us well. We see her about once a week at Wendy's. Recently, the lady bought a house, and we decided to give her a house warming gift, since we have been so blessed to have her in our lives. We brought her a door wreath and took her to dinner. Then she gave us a tour of the house. We had a great time! We believe God put our paths together to help each other heal. This lady is truly a blessing in our lives. We have much to be thankful for.
