A while ago, I interviewed my readers for a change, and my final question was, “What question have I NOT asked at BTT that you’d love me to ask?” I got some great responses and will be picking out some of the questions from time to time to ask the rest of you. Like now.

Ted asks:

Have you ever used a book to instruct someone of something or is there anyone for whom you would like to do that? (I don’t mean a text book for a class, but a work of fiction or non-fiction that would get a certain message across either through plot or character). What is the book and what do you wish to impart?

Don’t forget to leave a link to your actual response (so people don’t have to go searching for it) in the comments—or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!

  11. My most dearest a sweetest friend has battled cancer, I spent countless hours with her at MD anderson Willingly I wrapped my head with a scarf and we made light of the whole scenario or as much as we could without breaking into tears from fear. I organized Blood drives .. Constantly treating her to a “happy” a gift from the heart smething simple and silly like a pillowcase with out picture as besties on it you know things girls who care do for each other. A very sad thing has happened to our friendship. Our relationship parted because I could not carry her any longer. Not that I did not want to Because I WOULD DO ANYTHING FOR HER> The weight of the worry was affecting me …My Life…and My Family I had to step back and practice self preservation. I kept in touch. and Great news She survived breast cancer Not too long after she received a full remission I had a little issue with a firiend of hers. I was told by my Girl in Pink that extremely personal medical information was being shared with her at walmart and she wanted to know why I had not told her this about me. I was angry I confided theis infor with my doc. I ask my girl in pink who told her. she would not tell me. TO THIS DAY SHE WILL NOT TELL ME THE NURSES NAME THAT SHARED MY BUSINESS> Its the only way NO ONE KNEW BUT MY DOC> I feel betrayed. I was so good to her for so very long gave so much of myself until I too was becoming sick and now I feel so betrayed she did not protect me as I did her. many many months past without and phone calls No texts no emails. until about a week ago….she called to tell me the cancer is back……..she told me that if anything happens to her I am to read Fire Fly Lane and that i will know what to do…that my message will be clear. Or dear I dont know what to do with the worry. I dont know what to do with my anger with her for betraying me but at the same time i cant not be there for her when she is calling on me. Do you think women take advantage of each others heart….do you see a pattern here with our friendship….can I trust her …or is it “can she trust me?…………
    “fire Fly lane”
