Oh my goodness... i need some happy posts

my neighbor broke both her arms and her tail bone a few weeks ago, she fell on ice
she has a woman come in during day m-f
and her husband has been doing everything at night, in early am (getting ready child for school), weekends non stop etc

they have a meal sign up sheet, have taken them food, shoveled snow, run to store- many are helping out

this afternoon, i went over there with dinner and to give her husband a break- he went out with their child
i took care of her while husband and 11 yr old got out of the house and had a half day of no caring giving
i am exhausted, and i can not hold back my tears

two broken arms
she can not do anything!
but she has the best attitude...now i have seen her a few times when she thought she needed a rubber room
but today, she was inspiring
she is on her fourth casts, has had one surgery, they might have to go back and redo her left arm
uggh!
and how her husband is holding up is a mystery

please post some stuff to cheer me up

  • Oh gosh, that's sad. How about this.....

    Do you know why women aren't as good at parking as men? Because we've been lied to our whole adult lives about what 8 inches is!

  • Wow, what a trooper that woman is! Her husband was probaby really grateful you gave him a break.
