MISSION STATEMENT


Our mission is to reach out to women who have cancer and give them an emotional and spiritual lift. A time to meet new friends, share words of encouragement, receive inspiration, compassionate nurturing and support while enjoying a cup of tea. Our support group offers a time to meet other ladies experiencing cancer. A beautiful tea party is given each month in your honor. Come and enjoy a tea time for the soul! The menu consists of sandwiches, fruit, scones with jam and cream, and, of course, desserts. A variety of hot and cold teas are served.










VISION STATEMENT


Roses Among Thorns vision for the future is a time when no woman has to face cancer alone. We see a time when we have created a safety net of support groups around Arkansas and surrounding states to provide support, encouragement and inspiration to all women who are carrying the extra burden of cancer.










INSPIRATIONAL THOUGHTS


Step into your Rose garden
Allow yourself a moment of parden
With no hard thoughts in tow
Of any bad injuries or woe.

Tread lightly, these moments
Avoid all negative comments
Pine not for the losses
Move closer to the roses.

Forever we need His touch
Through friends who care so much
Who seeming to lift our thoughts
Cause roses to bloom in our hearts.

And be reminded at each sight of lace
He wishes to surround us in His grace
Let your thoughts open as a blossem
That God's blessings are truly awesome.

Those thorns will always be there
But also are those people who care
God gives us His gifts, but also warns:
We must always... And never forget!
To look to his Roses among the thorns.

Written to bless your life by Myrna Burdine, RN
