This week has been tough. My son crashed the car into a horse, so we are without a car. My son is ok, and that’s the important thing. But it was scary. Our washing machine broke, and the fix-it man broke something while fixing it, so we are still without a machine. Our kitchen has been removed to prepare for a new one, so we are without a kitchen. But….we have good friends. And that makes everything better.
When we are in a difficult situation in life, sometimes it is hard to see the good we do have. But we must, because there is always good.
This morning, knowing I had no kitchen, and that I was having a difficult week, my friend Chava surprised me at the pool with fresh challah. See the photo above. She even decorated the tray with candies. I was very moved.
Sometimes good friends really save us. I have made good friends here, and when I have problems, I do turn to them to listen. For advice. To vent. To scream. And it helps, it really does.
