I had wondered at one point, “How do I show grateful heart?”
This group of friends added a bright spot to my life in my darkest hour. And they continue to do so. Before Charles died, they listened. Since his death, they listen.
You should see all the contortions we went through to get this right. We tried all kinds of complex moves. But in the end, simplicity won. This one in particular means a lot to me. The group effort a part of that love. 🙂 See the outtakes below.
There have been other special friends (BFFs) in my life both before Charles died and after. This one represents you, too even though your hand is not literally in the picture.
Martha, my life-long friend whose feet hit the floor the morning we were falling apart and knew to call me immediately because she had a “feeling”, to Stephanie that always had enough time to listen. Steve, with whom I started the conversation many years ago. To the friends like Wendy who helped us move when we were robots in grief. The group of friends who have been coming to Trees of Hope back when we had to beg for attendees. The rest of my book club girls who couldn’t be at this meeting. I have so many friends to be thankful for. So many I have not named here. You are amazing human beings.
