The friends I haven't met

I have some pretty terrific friends here in bloggy world. They are the best!

But my job also gives me the opportunity to make friends that I have never met.

Over the years I have built a working/friendship with some of our vendors and customers.

There are a few that I talk more than just business with.

Take Kim at WCW. She is a vendor but she has also become a great friend. She is always so up beat no matter what is going on.

And Angie at CISD who is a customer of ours. She is so sweet and I try to do my best to take care of her requests.

Yesterday I received word that Angie would be out for a while.

Her boss said that her husband had passed away very suddenly. Details are still sketchy.

All of the arrangements have been made and services have been scheduled but I just can't stop thinking about her and her family.

I talked to her on Monday afternoon and her husband passed away that night.

My heart is breaking for her.

I know the only thing I can do for her right now is pray.

But I feel as if I should be more. If only we lived closer together. I could go do her laundry or mow the grass or something.

But I will continue to pray for peace and comfort.

And Ang, if you are reading this...I love you!! I will be right here!!

Oh my goodness. So sad. I will be praying for her today and all the rest of the week! Now, when I go to blogs, I see so many things I have to be praying for that I have to keep a notepad by the computer so I can remember to pray for everything.
