Words About Friends
TOFF#49 at The Octopode Factory Challenge blog is all about Friends (you should stop by the blog and see the great creations). My original plan was to make a crowd scene using every Octopode individual I had, but that didn't work out. I then decided to go with a quote that symbolizes true friendship to me. The first time I saw this quote, I thought that "mind" was suppose to be "mine" - but it isn't, and that one word makes all the difference. I have some great friends who can take my jumbled up thoughts and help make sense of them; those kind of friends are super cherished right now.
My MIL passed away Saturday. It was a blessing that she didn't have to suffer in severe pain long, and she was at home surrounded by her family which is just exactly what she wanted. Nonie was a wonderful Mother and friend - she was so loved. What a testimony to how unselfish love can impact lives. Pop is doing great at the Rehab Facility and should be going home soon. Thanks for all the prayers, thoughts, and wishes.
Hugz to all!
