It never rains but it pours, right?
My best friend of 27 years is going through a difficult time right now. Her mother (Mrs E) has been having health problems since February and she is now receiving hospice care...and is not expected to live much longer. I have been hanging out with my friend babysitting and helping around the house as she doesn't get much support or help from her husband.
It's hard because of course I have known her mother for 27 years also....and she's a cool lady. I felt like such a jerk because we were sitting at the table and my friend showed me a picture of her mother and her aunt....and I started crying. My friend started to comfort me and of course that is not good. I am there to comfort her, not the other way around. But it's ok....she knows I care about her and her mum and I think just having me around was helpful even if most of what we did was sit at the table and gab.
So once again, dear LitNet friends....please excuse my frequent absences. Life is overwhelming for me right now, and I don't always have the strength to cope with even the minor things I am going through. My best wishes and thoughts to all of you.
