Things I Love Sundays: The Underwoods

If you're like most people this weekend, you're probably on Netflix to watch the newly dropped House of Cards. And if you're like me and my man friend, you're probably shutting out the world and trying to finish the whole season :P

So basically my weekend was all about snuggles with Butters, fried chicken and a marathon of House of Cards Season 4 + Sunday morning of UFC 196. Oh my heart! I am more and more admiring some parts of Claire Underwood but I'm reserving that for my next blog entry.

In other news, my week's highlight was seeing a dear friend, after months and months of not being able to. The sad thing about it is knowing she is face to face with mortality. At this point, my heart has broken into many pieces as I saw her battle cancer to her very energy, refusing to succumb into a disease that tears the body and the soul. I was glad I was able to tell her I missed her so much, and that I will always be thankful for all of that she has taught me. She is one of my biggest blessings in this life and I cannot imagine what life would be without her presence.

"They gave me two months, Tara." 

I've never had to be in that position before -- and I'd never wish it on anyone. At this point, I am left to only pray every chance I get. There's not much more any of us, or all the money in the world can do but hope in our heart for a miracle. And on the way back to work, I thought to myself, how much sadness exist amidst all the joy and how very much the idea of death is part of our daily lives.

In this very moment, I want to dedicate this entry to my dear friend Tania, who is fighting for her life. May God place His hand on you Tania, and may He heal your soul. I love you my dearest sister!

It's been a bittersweet week. I hope yours is blessed.
