I miss my friend. My beautiful, incredible, amazing, intelligent, spiritually fragrant friend. I miss Cheryl Albert Reed. She just passed away last Thursday due to the cancer she was fighting. She was close to my age with a wonderful family, a loving husband and two very precious children. I haven't been the same since that phone call last Thursday and I can't do anything right because all I can think about is Cheryl. Beautiful, inspiring, creative, loving, genuine, sincere Cheryl. My Pastor told me once- "Don't sing the music, be the music." Such was true in the life of Cheryl Reed. She was the music. A symphony of goodness and grace. I miss my beautiful friend. I should have called more. Done more. Been there more. Demonstrated my heart for her more. If you have a Cheryl Reed in your life, Call. Write. Meet. Encourage. Pray. Support and LOVE her.
Don't wait. Tomorrow could be too late. I'll post again soon. Right now, I'm holding my babies tight.
