With a bit of text by way of explanation!
December 12th was to have been the day that my friend Tina completed 12 rounds of chemotherapy.
It was also the day that we finished a novena to Our Lady of Guadalupe for her (unbeknownst to Tina).
And so yesterday morning, for the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, we thought we might surprise her at her home with a “little” token of our love and gratitude: this beautiful concrete statue.
And after that, I shared my news!
A very happy postscript to this story is that Tina wound up finishing her treatments last month. Consequently she felt (and looked!) wonderful for her surprise. Please keep her in your prayers!
