I do have a point to make.
I don't know if you know facebook very well, but when you search for someone you get a whole list of possibilities. I knew the first one was her right away. BUT, what I didn't notice were a couple of group pages listed underneath. I only saw it after I left her a message.
Suddenly I am seeing "Support Group for Shauna ----", "Fundraiser for Shauna ----".
That worried me.
I opened up those groups and found out that this old friend's sister was in a mountain biking accident and is now paralyzed from the chest down, with little use of her fingers to boot.
She has twin girls who will be two this month.
She will be in the hospital for 6-12 months.
I've been thinking about her all day.
It makes me want to dance with my kids.
Walk around the lake to feed the ducks.
Go and have one smokin' game of soccer.
Ride my bike.
Pinch Olivia's little bum.
Dance. With Leon. The way we used to.
What would you be sure to do?
Side note: Liv and I did indeed go and feed the ducks tonight!
