I am blessed with two handfuls of true friends, people who will stick with you even when everyone else does not; people of whom you are so appreciative; people who make you feel lucky to call them a friend.
One of my friends is in hospital having suffered a heart attack. He is currently stable but in pain. I am going to visit him today. I hope he makes a full recovery.
His health challenges remind me once again that life is immensely fragile.
