INSPIRING STORY OF THE WEEK

THE ART OF THE SOUL 

by Adrienne Drake, MD

Art happens at the moment you are unseated. ~Tess Gallagher~

Tales2Inspire winner logoThis is the inspiring story of Gayla, a talented and caring human being, a model for many to follow.

When her dear friend, Gayla, became ill, Adrienne  was unwavering in her optimism that she was going to pull through. At the time of her diagnosis, Adrienne had known Gayla for only three years, yet during that short time, their friendship had grown into an ideal fit. Gayla’s dual hardships of being  a single mom with a disabled daughter became her greatest teachers, and she in turn gave strength and support to those whose lives she touched. Although only three years older than Adrienne, she made her feel like a beloved daughter. In fact, she became the kind of mother that Adrienne had forever longed for but never had.

After Gayla’s cancer diagnosis, she maintained her positive outlook, continuing to see and reflect on the goodness she saw in others, while maintaining a positive outlook for herself. Yet fate had other plans. Life was so unfair. Why did such a good person have to die so soon?

Yet, even in death, Gayla remained a powerful teacher. In the face of her own mortality, she exhibited a quiet dignity and grace. The beauty of their friendship inspired Adrienne to live up to her example. Instead of wallowing in self-pity, Adrienne created a collage depicting a rugged mountain in a simple golden landscape.
