My visit...

Yesterday I stopped by to see my friend whose hubby is at home with hospice... she said that they told her that he only had very few days left....

Today I went to visit at 10 am (yes, I had an appt!) and stayed until about noon. I could not work fast enough to get over there to be with her. I was worried sick about her being there all alone. His brother and sister in law had gotten there late last night to stay... WOW! Whenever you think you have it bad.. just remember that no matter what there is someone... somewhere.. a lot worse off than you. Stop and say a prayer for THEM!

Tonight was my girls night out... POKENO! We all brought door prizes, and we played dirty Santa... I fought for a Willow Tree thingy.. normally they are not my thing, but this one was the "Angel of Hope" (Sharing the light of hope and courage) I am going to wrap it and run it by after I take the girls to school and put it on my friends back door step... she will find it about 8 am.. I hope I never find my self in her position, but I can tell you that there are a lot of people that I would take care of if I needed to just like she is doing! Please lift Jennifer and her family up in your prayers. I just can't imagine.

I know this is heavy on your mind. I am glad you are being a great friend to her during this time...she needs it, and sometimes it is so hard for us to reach out b/c the pain other people are experiencing can be scary. Glad you won the tree so you could give it to her! I am saying a prayer right now.

I love my willow tree stuff. I am sure little keepsakes like that mean more than you would think.

Sorry about your friend. As long as he is a Christian, it is gonna be ok. Tell him Jake will be there to meet him!

By the way, doesn't Ellie remind of you of Ralphie's younger brother in the Christmas story?! Mel
