I missed my book club’s annual Christmas party because I had a horrible stomach virus.
I was very sick and sad—until my friend Eva sent me a card with “sunshine thoughts.” My friend Kathryn made me chicken soup with matzo balls. My friend Olga mailed me a book because I missed the book club book exchange. My friend Gail brought me food from the party—Susie’s apple pie and Diane’s red velvet cake—to save and eat when my stomach is better.
Everyone at the party signed a card for me with a lovely quote from Shakespeare.
“Joy, gentle friends, joy, and fresh days of love accompany your hearts!”
May you, too, experience joy and love from gentle friends during this holiday season.
