When You Least Expect It

Just when you think you have life by a golden ribbon. Just when you think you're on the cusp of sprouting wings of flight. Just when you think nothing could go wrong. Life happens.

You hear from a dear friend that her husband died. Yes, less than 3 weeks before Christmas, that very vulnerable time of year. You ache for her, you weep for her, and you want to be there for her. Life is tough that way.

So you blog about it, you rally the troops to send cards and you pray for her to have strength and peace. My heart is yours today, Darlene, and to your wonderful husband who brought joy to all of us through his culinary magic, sweet smile and delicious sense of humor.
