Shadows fall~

It's happening now...
My best friend's sister- has had a stroke and a major brain bleed this morning. She's being air-lifted to our local hospital for emergency surgery- things don't look good.

K has been struggling with a brain tumor for almost a year now- and she's young- in her 30's with 3 kids.
My best friend's heart is simply broken...and my heart for her~
Thoughts and prayers for strength for the family now is all I can ask for.
And I'd ask you to hug someone you love today- hug them twice- once for me.

well...ok, but it'll freak 'em out 'cause I'm not the hugger-type, y'know.

Oh, I've heaqrd it said that i hug good, but, I'm just hugging back.
It's kind'a like I'm about 6'4" and some and now-a-days I weigh around pazoombidiebizniz and well, t'see someone like that comin' at ya when yer just a lil five foot three, teensie weensie lil ol' lady,...well. Folks run, sometimes....

I am sorry to hear about your friend, though.
I know you have actually helped me with getting with the process of dying better, and it has helped these past couple of years (I think it was your [?] uncle). You'll help your friend through it....

You are good for a soul in need of warmth.
Hey...I'de hug you back any ol' time y'want to!

Hugs to you this afternoon, dear Cora. I am seeing my sisters tonight at dinner, and certainly will hug and kiss them with more intensity after reading this. My prayers are for her children above all else...bless you for being a good support system. Stay strong...

my thoughts are with you.
i know your presence will be a comfort to your friend.
xoxo

well, I did it.
I lucked out because Jackie Lyles came in to church today, and she's always big on hugs.

Also saw Jim Haines. Yeah, I know you don't know him, but, he's a good sort. He's the one who got me set up with the doctor that fixed my cateracts.
The bad news is his Mother's on a one way ticket to gone. In the hospital now, but, no expectations there.
I told him I was taping the church service this morning and asked him if he could help....
then I handed him a half roll of duct tape.
He laughed, and for just a moment....you know, just for a moment forgot the pain.
I used to tell his Mother jokes when she came....

I hope Jesus doesn't mind if some of those folks come on up laughing, y'know?

Cause I ain't gonna quit anytime soon.

Boneman- thanks, for the smile and the thoughtful words, and the hug :)

Thank you Amy- I spent the day with my best friend and her family today- it was good to be with them, even though it was so sad.

Hugs Foamy- I feel your thoughts-

/t... thank you friend <3

Chesca- thank you...we need them, and feel them- we do.

Phos- :)

Boneman- the last time I was with K and she was awake- we talked and laughed for over an hour. Today when I went to see her- even though she was only drifting in and out- I talked to her about our last discussion, and about the beach (I was with them for a few days last August)...and about her being well and us going back. I know she's never going to be well enough to go to the ocean again, but I had to do or say something that would bring joy. I hope someone will do the same for me~
Hugs- hugs and more hugs :)
