The worst time of year for me!! From Thanksgiving through New Year’s Eve, the emphasis is on family and festivities. I have neither; my family rejected “the old lady.” Praise be to God, I have friends who “care” for me. A lady-friend paid for expensive furnace repair. Another friend (couple) took notice of my fondness for my “Slanket.” Look at their thoughtful gift. “Computer glasses“ because another friend is sympathetic to my vision/computer screen frustration. No less significant, a friend loaned her battery charger. Another friend contributed two beautiful blue bottles for my “Bottle Tree.” Greetings and well-wishes from across the nation.
