For Friends in Trial

All over my blog community,  people are encountering huge obstacles in their geographical communities: floods on their property. Untimely, unexpected death in the family. Troubles of other kinds.

How I wish I lived close to you all--I would be happy to wash dishes, shovel crap, launder blankets, and bring over some soup and coffeecake. In the meantime, you have my thoughts and best wishes, my hopes for good outcomes and relief from the tragedies. Keep me posted when you can. Until then, just know the candles are lit, on the tile table next to my red wall, for you all.

Your right. It does seem like the fit is hitting the shan lately. I hope everyone comes out ok. Or as ok as they can.

I'm off cycle. I was a mess 3 months ago when everyone else was doing good and now things are going well. Almost feel guilty. =/

Ann T:
Beautiful flowers!

Thanks for the thoughts. Not personally affected; I'd be looking for Noah if my house flooded, but I especially feel for the business owners whose life work has nasty flood water on it.

Weather calamity is to be expected unfortunately. Helps clear up priorities a bit.

The power of water never ceases to amaze me. My prayers are with all those you refer to--especially those facing floods.

Ann T.,

You have to be the kindest soul! I love the fact you care so much. Beautiful flowers! You are a super lady!

Dear peedee,
I guess if we all had them at once, nobody would be able to help anybody!

Or actually, that is kind of the emotional definition of a disaster.

you got me to thinkin', gurl,

Dear The Observer,
Glad you liked them! I've been following your weather news. Good luck to everyone in your vicinity!

And to you for sure.

Dear Slamdunk,
I believe your prayers are better than most, so this is a good thing in everybody's corner.

Yup, water has power in the big wave and in the sodden mass when it comes to floods.

Thanks for stopping in on your time off! Stay safe, relax, take care of that sleep deprivation!

Sincerely,
Ann T.

Dear Momma Fargo,
I was glad to hear your voice and that you're out and about. Keep us posted here or at your blog!

As to kindness, that has worked both ways around here. I am lucky in my friends and neighbors. Thank you, Auntie Flo!

Beautiful flowers, are they columbine? They are perfectly what is needed! As are you as a great "neighbor" ! Enjoy the day, you deserve it!

Dear Gia,
I'm so glad you could come by and see some flowers!

I think they are lilies. I had never seen a burgundy one before.

Great neighbor? Thanks and back atcha!

Take care, Gia,
Ann T.
