thoughts and prayers


It is wonderful having friends stretching all over the United States
But there are moments, like now, when I wish
I could snap my fingers and appear right beside them
So I can hold their hand
Sit with them in silence
Cook them a good meal
And let them breathe just a little bit easier

But I am here
and dear Liz is there
And even though we may be far apart
I am holding her and her new family deeply in my heart
Sending her love and healing thoughts

And I ask you to please do the same
Because during difficult times
It helps when we come together
And hold each other tenderly

Please send out your thoughts and prayers
to Liz, John, and their new baby Ellie
And if you feel inclined, go here
and leave Liz a little message to lift her up
I know she would appreciate it greatly

so so true. i was just thinking that the other day when i heard ellie had to go to the hospital. i sat at the computer and just wanted to hop a plane.

she feels all of us. i have been amazed at seeing all the love heading her way.
it is a beautiful thing.

So true. I continue to hold them in my thoughts, but it would be nice to be closer to do something slightly more tangible.
