Thread Name: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Subject: RE: Healing thoughts & prayers please (Nigel Paterson)
Janie, thank you so much for the link to: "The Comfort of Singing Voices". The final line of the chorus: "...when the dark time ends." goes right to the heart of the matter, particularly after Christmas Day spent with Jane, her Sister, their Families, Ann & myself. We were twelve in all. Jane managed to spend part of the day with us all, stretched out on a sofa, gifts at her feet, which, for the most part remained unopened. It was heartbreaking to see this dynamic, energetic young Lady brought so low. Our Grandchildren did their best to make merry with the giving & receiving of presents, but I found the juxtaposition of Jane's frailty & the Youngster's excitement almost too much to bear. Ann & I spoke very little during the drive home; we didn't need to, our thoughts were practically audible.
         Stay close, my Dear Friends. I have a feeling that Ann & I are going to need You more than ever in 2013. Your continuing Love & Support is beyond price. Take good care of Yourselves,
         Wishing You All a Happy, Healthy & Peaceful New Year,
                                                                                           Nigel & Ann
