The holidays are supposed to be happy and joyful, right? Yet, so many people I love are suffering or have lost loved ones recently. Times are tough for a lot of folks. Illness, death. A friend buried her husband yesterday, I just got back from saying farewell to one of our own nurses and another friend buries his mother tomorrow. Along with many others, my own dear sister Shirley is suffering the awful effects of chemotherapy. Life is short and precious. Be kind to each other folks and let's lend a hand where we can.
