~ a friend is wrapping herself around the process of nursing her soldier husband back to health after being blown up in Iraq... and I am sooo glad he is ok.
~ a friend is holding onto hope that all is well with the wee baby swimming around in her tummy... I've said so many little prayers for your baby and you today it's silly.
~ a friend is bursting with joy at the chance to hold her new baby... and I want pictures!
~ a friend is waiting to hear from her son ... who is fighting in Iraq... and I'm sure he is fine!
~ a friend is about fit to be tied... anticipating the arrival of her engagement ring, back from adjustments... I can hear her squealing from here.
~ a friend is hoping that her daughter will see this christmas... and I hope she will... with all my heart.
~ a friend is trying to figure out where to live with her son... now that home has slammed the door on her.
~ a friend is working on holding it together with her boyfriend... because he's prol'y the first person to make her feel like a real person.
~ a friend is moving across the country ... to start a new job... in a new town... and you know that has got to be hard.
~ a friend is hoping that laws made by people who have lost their vision will stop keeping her away from the woman she loves...
~ a friend is burying a grandmother... and working on bringing her heart back from a dark and quiet place. Smile sugar-sweet... Grans would much rather look down and see you happy.
... and I could go on... rather significantly.
If the quality of a life can be measured in many ways...
I suspect one would be by the breadth of your emotional range.
To feel as much as I feel ...
and to care for so many wonderful and amazing people...
very clearly tells me I am living a good life.
