a comforting touch...




I have a very dear friend who is forced to wait helpless from a distance as the man she loves fights for his life. I experienced the pain of not being able to be with the man that completes me (yeah, I know... but as cheesy as that sounds, it's an accurate description) as he undergoes surgery.

It's unbearable. I don't wish it on anyone.

So I ask all of you in the bloggosphere to send good thoughts to my friend Corinne and her Honey Rory. Healing prayers for him.. and strength and comfort for her worried heart. So if you would, imagine your hands holding theirs... it's one of the truest signs of comfort I've ever experienced.

Thanks... she really believes in the power of good thoughts and prayers. And so do I.

UPDATE - I received an e-mail from my friend this morning telling me the surgery has been postponed as her Honey is showing marked signs of recovery. Good thoughts work babies.. Please keep them coming and thank you so very much!

You got it babe.

Shortly after we were married, hubby broke both legs and other body parts in a dirt bike accident. In a crowded waiting room, but none of my family present, I never felt so alone and time stood still. That was 23 yrs ago. He came out of it fine.

I didn't see this post yesterday Anndi - obviously something to do with the time difference. Anyway, I'm sending positive thoughts and oodles of Reiki now. x

Karen said...

I am absolutely keeping your friends in my prayers.

I can't really imagine what your friend is going through, but it's great that there's some good news. All the best to them...

I'm sending positive vibes your way! I hope she is with her sweetie soon. Also, I gave you an award over at my place. Check it out when you can.

Anndi said...

Brian: I'm glad you've never experienced that kind of pain my dear. Thank you for the kind thoughts.

Jen: Thanks... I do too! And thanks for the award, I'll be over soon but I need to fix my makeup first and pick a dress and have a pedi ... it's not a ceremony, is it?
