Most of my friends are in the same place in their lives. We were all married within a couple of years of each other. We bought cars. We built houses. We had our first kids in the same year. The second children followed two years later. We have BBQs and attend birthday parties. We let each other know when diapers go on sale. We call get air conditioning from the same store at the same time. So when something awful happens, we all feel it because it could easily be us.
Our friend Kit is in the hospital. He became sick quite suddenly and now needs help to breath and move. Fortunately, the syndrome that he has is not fatal and he will recover but it will take time and patience and support. As much as we would like to do things for him and his family, which is a mirror of mine, there really isn't much that we can do but be there and pray.
If you have time today, would you please keep my friends, Kit and Tanya, in your thoughts? It is always better to have people to support you and lift you up. You, dear knitters, are my people. Thank you.
