My last post was a visual portrayal of family and how important they are in my life.
Little was I to know that a few days later, the magnitude of their love would be shown, without hesitation.
Jac, Kate & Loz
In a nutshell, I became very ill. And so in the wee hours of the morning, I made a call, within minutes they were here. My nieces and my sister.
Supportive, concerned, organised and comforting. One rode in the ambulance, the other comforted my worried sons along with Stanley, who, although family of the 4-legged variety, seemed equally worried.
Admitted into hospital, my beloved niece Kate who had flown in from LA that morning (she is a flight attendant) and who had not slept for over 30 hours, sat with me in a brightly painted room, holding my hand and offering words of comfort.
Kate, a bundle of vibrant energy who embodies all that is real and positive, retold humorous tales of our European jaunt as a nurse attempted (and I say attempted loosely ) to insert a drip into my arm, whilst my sister endured her own pain as I wedged my fingers into her wrist.
With a diagnosis revealing the problem is readily treatable, I’m now back at home.
Special. Loving. Beautiful.
There. ALways x
