News about Friend

Friday, July 16, 2010

I talked with my friend yesterday and this morning. She asked the dr. for some anti-anxiety meds and they will help her get through until the anti-depressants kick in. I took her some coffee this morning and she seemed much better. She had a couple questions I could help with. I also offered quiet talks in her garden whenever she need them. All of you who commented with such compassion and excellent suggestions. I moved through my sadness and now remember how important it is just to have someone who cares and understands. I don't have to do a thing, I can't do a thing except be there for her and that I can do. Our group of four very close friends have a quick acronym we use when extraordinary things happen - ATM (Always Trust Magic.) My friend was teaching a summer class to teachers and I walked in with her coffee just as they were talking about yoga. When I left, they all asked if we had somehow set up the timing of my arrival. We looked at each other and just said ATM!

    Like Pam, I did not read yesterday's blog until I read today's. I am so sorry for your friend. She is fortunate indeed to have you and the other friends in her life to help support her. I hope the anti-depressants will help too.
    Hugs, Leslie

    I am sorry that I did not get to read your yesterday's blog until I read your today's blog. "Being there for your friend" is probably the best thing that you can do for her. I am so sorry to hear of her loss, but I am glad that she has you and her other friends who will be there to help her get through this time. "ATM" is beautiful.
