I’m posting from the train 🙂 I’d really like to send a care package to my friend in hospital.

So far I have:
2 shawls/wraps (the trendy name escapes me at this hour of the morning). Her arm was injured in the accident and I thought the wraps would be easier for her to use than a dressing gown.

I’ve been unable to find purple slippers, so was going to get some purple Holeproof Explorers to keep her feet warm in hospital and just because they’re purple!

I’m also thinking of including – a crystal/stone, a ferret drawing (might sound odd, but it’s so very her), maybe a small Lego pack for each of her boys when they visit her in hospital…

What else? I don’t want it to be a “you’re sick, here’s things for sick people” type of package. I want it to be more of “here’s some things to show I’m thinking of you and I care about you” type of gift.

One of the reasons I hadn’t updated my blog – a friend had a very bad car accident.

I’d think about blogging, and I could only imagine typing sad things. Which I suppose is fine, the idea of this blog is to get my emotions out there. Admit to them. But this lady, let’s call her P2, is a fantastic person. And she gets what my son is going through. And one day I want to share this blog with her, and I don’t want her to see the sadness or the rawness of how I felt when I heard she might not make it.

I’m in a bit better place now, and so is she. She’s going to make it. Things will be tough for her, but she has wonderful people around her who are all cheering her on.

All I can do from far away is think positive thoughts, and look for purple slippers for her. I wish I could do more. I hope she knows that.
