Please Pray for My Friend (and Fellow ActiveRainer) Liz Carter

It's wonderful that people on Active Rain are so supportive. Get well soon, Liz!

I spoke awhile last night with my good friend Liz Carter from Katy, Texas (near Houston).  Liz has struggled with a number of health issues this past year, including hepatitis C (currently in remission, although I'm not sure if that's the exact term), a ruptured appendix, and intestinal surgery. 

Currently, Liz is in the hospital recovering from pneumonia.  Her doctor told her that she could possibly go home on Friday if all goes well.  Until recently, she was recovering from two separate surgical incision simultaneously!

I have had the pleasure of getting to know Liz pretty well during my time here on AR, and we have met in person twice, once at an AR gathering in Bandera, and then again at my birthday party last August right here in Austin (the picture shows me with Ricki Eichler and Liz during that event).  On both occasions, I was impressed with Liz's outgoing and fun personality, and we started something of a mutual admiration society.  For many years, Liz has been a top-producing agent in her market, and she is an assertive salesperson and a respected team leader.

I told Liz that I would be writing this post, and I made sure that it was okay with her that I share this story.  Her quote was, "I'm an open book."  For those of you who know me, you know how this would resonate with me. 

We spoke for awhile about the challenges ahead for Liz, and she has a terrific attitude, which is probably more than half the battle.  I know that she will face her recovery with the same determination and positive spirit that she has shown in her business over the years.

Please pray for my friend.  If you feel led to do so, feel free to re-blog this post and help spread the word, too!  I would also encourage you to stop by Liz's latest post and leave a supportive comment: Active Rain Members are true friends

One of the most amazing things that I have seen here on AR is the ability to positively affect lives for the good just by writing a few words.  Thanks for your prayers and support for Liz.  God bless you all.
