Sad News.

Sad news today because H, the lady who has been taking Tess for walks for me, has died very suddenly.  She took a load of garden rubbish to our local tip and died while she was there.   I am very saddened by her death as all three of us got on so well together.

Friends S and T came round for a meal this evening.   I was so pleased they came because, selfishly, they took my mind off my sadness about H's death.   They came round early and took Tess for a lovely walk (and picked me some blackberries to cook tomorrow along with the apples I was given this morning at our monthly Strugglers meeting.)   How lucky I am to have such good friends.

Our Struggler's meeting this month was interesting - it is always - as we discussed what we could say were our good points.   It is easy to say what our faults are isn't it, but not so easy to put our thoughts into words on what our strengths are.   I think all eight of us left with plenty of food for thought.

So altogether today was a lot of different days rolled into one.   There was sadness, indeed there was, but there was  also the comfort of friendship from different sources and the knowledge of just how important one's friends are and just how much we should value them.

Until tomorrow.

I'm so sorry that you've lost your friend. I always feel that sudden death is hardest on those left behind. No warning, or saying of things that we all should say anyway. Such a shock. Take care of yourself.

I found this quite shocking. One never knows what life (death) holds in store for us, so best we all make the most of it whilst we can. My most sincere condolences.

That is so sad.

You got to hear about it very quickly. Quite often these things take a day or two to filter through. What a way to go, quick.

So sorry to hear that you (and Tess) have lost such a good friend. Blackberry and apple - my favourite! I've picked a lot of blackberries this year.

What an unexpected shock - so sorry for this sad news

That must have been a shock and you (and Tess) will miss H's regular visits. It is good that you have local friends who came to spend the evening with you.

Oh I am sorry to hear that Weave. You are right about valuing friends whilst you have the opportunity.

Very sad news. May she rest in a better place now - and with sweet dogs to take for walks.
You do have lovely friends - they are so important as we age.

I've been seeing posts and testimonies about BLANK ATM CARD but I never believed it, not until I tried it myself.
It was on the 12th day of March. I was reading a post about places to visit in Slovakia when I saw this captivating post about how a Man described as Mr George changed his life with the help of a Blank Atm Card. I didn't believe it at first until I decided to reach him through the mail address attached to the post. To my greatest imagination, it was real. Right now am living up to a standard I never used to live before. Today might be your lucky day! Reach Mr George via email: georgebrodericktechnologies@gmail.com and contact number/Whatsapp: +1 210-460-7419.... see you on the brighter side of life

I'm here to testify about Mr John Blank ATM Cards which can withdraw money from any ATM machines around the world.. firstly I thought it was scam until I saw so many testimony about how Mr John sent them the ATM blank card and how it was used to withdraw money in any ATM machine and become rich so I decided to risk the opportunity I contacted him also and I applied for the Blank Card to my greatest surprise I have used it to get 10,000 dollars. maximum withdrawal daily $1,000, Mr John is giving out the card just to help the poor. Hack and take money directly from any ATM Machine Vault,If your interested kindly contact him directly on his email (johnlopez1945@gmail.com)
