We're all knit together, I guess
Today I witnessed our next door neighbor signing power of attorney over to his wife. We've known this couple 11 years, and it's been a sad, shocking thing to see him decline in recent years. After watching his wife guide his hand to sign his name, I left, and IMed Hubby. Who, naturally, suggested I go have a drink. No wallowing for him! Even though, really, he is the softy, of the two of us.
Then later today, a dear friend presented me with this luxurious, beautiful scarf she'd made for me. It was just the sweetest gesture, and just the thing to shake me from the "we're all going to fall apart and die and struggle in the end" mood.
