A friend from church offered to watch my kids this evening. I’ve had a cold for a few days and we’ve spent a lot of time at the hospital, so daily household chores have fallen to the wayside, so I jumped at the offer to get some time to go grocery shopping. I got everything that I needed and when I got back to her house she offered me some dinner. I hadn’t eaten most of the day, so I eagerly accepted. And there we sat at the island in her kitchen, while I completely unloaded all the concerns and trials of the past few weeks. I think I hit every stage of anger and grief as my words poured out. She listened to every word of it. She hugged me as I cried.
Days like today, I am extra thankful friendship.
Thank you for your continued prayers. They are much needed.
