Six Sentence Sunday - apologies

I'm not being lazy, but unfortunately I've had to forego both my Wednesday's Writer and Six Sentence Sunday spots this week due  to a major domestic upheaval.  Not me or my close family, but - and anyone who has read 'Shopping for Love' which I've featured in previous weeks will understand - an elderly neighbour, who was my 'Joan'.

Sadly, when you reach the age of 86, life becomes very fragile and small things can have a seriously detrimental effect on the remainder of your life.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed for my elderly neighbour who is gravely ill and who, like Joan, has no one else around to help her in her hour of need.

I hope to be back on track next week, but in the meantime, I urge you to check out other participants of Six Sentence Sunday by clicking this link.  I know I'll be reading them - I'm completely hooked.

Awe, I'm so sorry about your "Joan", but it sounds to me like she has someone--you. I have my fingers crossed that things turn around for her. I'm sure you are a blessing to each other. :-)

Thanks Teresa,
I sometimes wish I could do more for her, poor old lady. She's very sweet, and very "Joan".

*hugs* wishing you both all the best. My mum is 86 - ladies of that age are so fragile.

Maryellen Brady said...

sending you hugs!! Hope you will be back to posting soon :) Glad your 'Joan' has you there!!

Thank you for your kind words, Elin and Maryellen. If I can get my "Joan" to understand, I know she will be very moved by your thoughts. (I told her she was the inspiration for my story but I suspect she didn't believe me!)

Thinking about you, Lyn. And your 'Joan'. I hope she recovers and has more years of happy life ahead of her.
Lots of love and hugs
