Of kindness

My deep gratitude to you all for the kind and thoughtful comments on my last post.
You ladies are something special.  Thank you.

Q's sister has stabilized a bit.  They've brought her blood pressure back up with medication but she is on dialysis until (and if) her kidneys start working again.  She has two young sons that just want their Mom home for Mother's Day.  It's heartbreaking.

On a completely selfish note, my skirts are falling off of me.  So there's that I guess.

Keep those candles lit.

My friend's (she was my bridesmaid) only sister is dying from pancreatic cancer.

I don't know what to say or do for her.  I'm so terrible with this kind of thing.
I feel so ashamed for my selfish focus when a wonderful young wife and mother is battling for her life.

I am not a religious person.
At most I'd describe myself as a cynical-leaning idealist.  (horrible combination really)

Alas, if I believed in prayer - I'd be on my knees right now.

I'm simply not very hungry these days, physically or emotionally.
