Caring for friends

We all have friends who are more like family. Sam and I are so very fortunate to know a very special couple who fit this description. We met because of them, they were in our wedding, and we have spent virtually every weekend together for the past two decades. In times of sorrow and joy, they are next on the list to call - right after our parents.

However, they're having a difficult time because she has cancer and is going through a particular rough patch in her treatment.

My postings will be light over the next couple of days (as they've been since Friday) as we help them with some home adjustments to make things easier.

We'll be building a ramp so she doesn't have to traverse the stairs and will probably need to replace their bathtub with a shower stall so she doesn't have to step over a such a high edge.

I hope y'all are fortunate to have such people in your lives - and that you enjoy the wonderful weather that is forecast for today.

Maggie,

Please let them know that my prayers are with them. It's always such a blessing to have friends of that caliber and it's our responsibility to take care of them and support them.

Make time, take time and treasure the time with them. Please call if there is anything I can do from here.

Maggie,

I will include you and your friend in my prayers.

Although I do not know your friend, God does.

As for postings, family and friends come first..., ALWAYS.

Hey Maggie, I call such people family by choice. We all have blood family, but the people we choose, or who choose us are extra special. Jayne
