Laurie - Please have many, many more of these moments, and may I be around to hear you talk about them.

I am so happy for you at this moment, words escape me, and only a sigh comes out.

Bob

Ya know I got home from the hospital yesterday and my neighbor brought dinner over last night which was so sweet and thoughtful. And delicious I might add. Well, a few minutes ago another friend of mine brought over a huge meal for tonight and another meal to freeze!! AND she told me that a lot of my sweet friends and neighbors have actually made a schedule of who's cooking for my family until...

I was bowled over. These sweet people have offered to do this so many times over the last 2 years but I always said "no, it's ok, we've got it covered, I can take care of it". Well this time they didn't even ask, they just did it. I'm so grateful and I know my family is too. It's kind of hard being on the receiving end of such kindness. I was always the one who cooked dinners for people who were sick or had new babies and such. But I have to say I am smiling. This is what caring is.

And I want to say thank you so much to all my DC friends who have cheered me on thru this. When I'm home alone on the computer, I know I'm not really alone. Thank you all.

Katy

Katy, I experienced this same thing last fall and winter when I had two knee surgeries, a bad flood and further health complications. Neighbours, people from our church and others were so quick to provide meals. Being a caterer and a giver, this was hard for me too. But accept it. I learned that the joy you and I feel giving to others is just as important to them and we shouldn't deprive them of it.

As for the DC family, well, I can't say enough about them. Just get well and know you are cared for at home and online.

Babe, two things here made me smile - your story, and the fact that you got a cell phone!

When those who have been so very ill, respond and begin the long road back, it makes me smile and my heart is so happy to be one of a wonderful group of people. Laurie, you know my feelings for you, you Tony and your dad...Katy, my sister in being used as a quinea pig, seeing what love people give us is a wonderful thing..I know it's hard to be on the receiving end,but never say no, the love in the gesture is a special thing..Accept it with a smile and love in your heart..I know you both do...Babe, you know I wish you and Wallie all the good life has to give...All of you are so dear...Stay well please.

My latest smile? Seeing the smiles on my Dad's face as we sit and watch a football game (or other sport) together like we did when I was a kid! And I am even enjoying the games almost as much as my time with him!
