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


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


and leave Liz a little message to lift her up

I know she would appreciate it greatly
