Mum has many friends, lovely and kind people who have been very supportive through this journey. Her friend Connie send me a beautiful note that I wanted to share. (I did ask permission before posting). Thank you again to all of you for your kind words, gestures and support you have all offered time and time again.
I took a little break from the blog for a while, just didn't have much to say. Thanks to Connie, the blog has a fresh post and a great photo that was taken at the Andrea Boccelli Concert.
As I get older, I realize that I have trimmed the fat when it comes to friends.I still have my close-to-my heart friends that I’ve had, in one case for 60 years.People I have met along the way, at different stages in my life journey, became friends-of-the moment.Good friends, some I still keep in touch with.But the close-to-my-heart friends remain constant and few.Once and a while, someone walks into your life and bam!They become a close-to-my-heart friend.Nancy is one of those to me.We clicked, plain and simple.As we started working together, we recognized our similar values, sense of humourand outlook on life.To me, it was the same excitement of a new love.I loved to see her beautiful, smiling face, as she walked in the door at TGSL, laden down with all her bags.I couldn’t wait to tell her what was new with me since the last time I saw her, or show her the latest pictures of my grandkids.I anticipated her recounting her latest events, and it was always a lively exchange.Every other Friday became Nancy day.Then we stepped out of the work environment, and went shopping, or for a glass of wine.We sat on my balcony or scrap booked at her apartment.I was thrilled to be on her wedding guest list and was moved by the love and warmth of her family and other friends.Nancy is a close-to-my heart friend.I hope for miracles.I pray for peace.I thank God for bringing her into my life.
