Thoughts for a friend...

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Infinity

Good morning!

I woke this morning with thoughts of a friend…

Just before bedtime last night, my boss had reached out to me. She wanted me to know that one of my good friends at work had been admitted to the hospital earlier in the day…

Chest pains. Certainly a scary thing for those of us north of 50. And it was scary for me to hear…

I am worried about my friend. She is sweet, kind, hard working, caring, and a wonderful listener…

She has been there for me through the years. She has been there on my lowest days with a loving hug or a wonderful shoulder rub... 

She is a single mother. She has children that need her. Kids that need their mom to take them to soccer practice. To lead them by example with a quiet inner strength. To inspire them through hard work, grit, and a sweet sensitivity…

She is a hard working real estate agent. She teaches music to children in our community. She takes care of her aging parents. She works at a retail store in town on her “free time” to provide for her family…

She is important. She is needed. She touches the lives of so many in her amazing, quiet, understated way…

So I sit here this morning realizing that life is short. I breathe in the air deeply and appreciate what the world has given me. I count my blessings of which I have many…

And I am thinking of a friend, and saying a prayer for her…

Have a blessed Friday!

Hi Ken,
I hope your friend/peer has a quick recovery. It sounds like she is a busy person dealing with much stress.  I hope she finds a way to relieve some stress yet keep the strength she needs to serve those who count on her.  And, perhaps she can learn to ask for some help for herself. That's not an easy lesson for most of us but people DO want to help if they just know what to do.

Sounds like a woman with a lot on her shoulders. And a truly loving person.  I am hoping there is a positive ending to this story of friendship. And yes, life is short, we do need to savor the moments with deep appreciation. Please let us know how she is doing. Thank you.  D
