All About Nancy

Nancy is my closest spiritual friend.
We live miles apart yet I am forever mindful of her.
When we first met, we were both strangers to a new town.
Both nurses, both with European cultural backgrounds and both joining the same church.
Now all of that goes to make a great connection.
She, like I, is exuberant about life, she laughs till she cries, and sees beauty in everything.
Nancy, is so near to my heart.
We were very close, going out together, sharing all our inmost secrets...
And never, taking offense with the other. 
Nancy is a soul mate, someone with whom my soul connects.

You all know I have been unable to get around as freely as I did.
It's getting better and with Rays help, I attended church yesterday for the first time in two months.
But on friday a parcel was delivered to my door.
It took me ages to walk and collect it as Ray had gone out.
What a surprise!!
It was from Nancy...
I cried as I opened it and saw all the love in special gifts from her and other friends.
Wonderful notes expressing love and care were tenderly read.
Thank you my sweet sisters-in-Christ..
Just to be remembered~ ~ meant to much.
So on here I want to thank them all.
Thank you Nancy.
Thank you Sister Jean.
Thank you Sister Zena and Sister Prima..
I Love You All. You made my day!!

Don't only think about your own affairs, 
but be interested in others too, 
and what they are doing "
