Through love and kindness, The love of my husband and the kindness and love of my niece.
My family, friends and my ex husband are all sending supportive love and care packages to my daughter in rehab
right now. This really warms my heart and helps ease my burden as well. My co-workers have also become closer and more
supportive of each other since we returned to the office last march after working from home during the pandemic.
This group has also been so helpful during a trying time in my life. I enjoy reading everyone’s reflections and wisdom.
I am an old gal, so I need lots of support these days. Right now, I am being supported by the woman (yes, woman!) who is fixing our heating system. And by my husband who helps in so many ways physically and emotionally. By my dog, who provides such joy and pleasure. By the computer technology that enables me to connect, to schedule, to order stuff, to look up stuff, to be entertained, and so much more. Over the long haul, I am supported directly and indirectly by so many people: the folks who clean my house, fix what’s broken, support me in taking care of my health, make my hair pretty, wash and fold my laundry, grow and distribute the food I eat, manufacture and provide the clothes I wear, cut and polish my toenails, keep my car running. Oh, gosh, I could go on and on. I am so blessed. Thank you all – you keep me going.
By a dear friend and by my sister, really supporting and joking and kidding via phone while the train I am in was more than an hour late and now due to the freezing cold outside and frozen relays, the train had to stop again for about another half hour, and might do so again … humor is requested, as arrival will probably be now after midnight. Have a good sleep, you all out there! 😀
I am reminded of all the people who support my simply being alive. Right now, I am eating food that I did not grow, pick, process, or transport. I am sure that many, many hands touched (perhaps figuratively) just this one bit of food that I have right now. The same is true for so many things that I rely on–the computer that I am using to type this, for example. I believe that I have a vast web of support available to me.
I’m being supported by countless number of people, creatures, plants and minerals! It’s truly amazing and surprising! We can easily forgot how fortunate we truly are! Thank you !
Friends who remind me to enjoy what is there to be enjoyed and leave the rest. Friends who are on the awakening journey. PSW’s who ask is there anything else. Taxi drivers who ask may I help. Friends who ask if they can take me shopping. The OT who is always one step ahead. Friends who remind me that family can just be people who share the same gene pool and to expect nothing else is okay and to be at peace with knowing that paths differ and they are doing the best they can with what they desire and understandings and skills at hand.
Thank you for this: “family can just be people who share the same gene pool and to expect nothing else is okay”. Some parts of my family are much more, some fit into this description.
When I read the question, I immediately thought of this site. Those who share here are so supportive and so willing to be vulnerable. They offer encouragement and they are very good listeners. I feel heard which I truly think is a human need. I am grateful for you all.
Since this past January, I have been on a journey with cancer. The hospital support team has been magificent every step of the way. I am particularly indebted to those with whom I can share my struggles on the more challenging days.
I often think of myself as someone who is doing everything alone on my own steam.
But today I am very aware of the supports around me, beginning with the dedicated teaching colleagues at school, to whom I can go for ideas and suggestions. Their support and expertise is invaluable. It takes a village to educate our young people, as we know!
My surgery is over, and I am home but in a lot of pain. Many people have offered to help, and I am grateful. Given this amount of pain I will need to accept help.
I ehco all the comments. Do what you need to do to gain your strength and recovery. Hugs
Wishing you a speedy recovery and healing prayers for you Rabbit.

So glad to have you back! We’ve been thinking about you. Sorry to hear about the pain.
The beautiful smiles from my loved ones and the smiles of the folks I interact with when I go to town. The good people who share their thoughts and reflections on this site daily is always a heaping spoonful of support.
So many of the posts here support me in my own journey. Thank you, everyone.
I am having surgery next month, and my kids are now making their plans and arranging their schedules to be here and help me recuperate.
I am supported by a lovely band of care workers who come to my home every day to help me stay independent and stay living in my own home which i have had adapted for my needs and where I am so happy. They cook, clean, help me wash and dress and support me in my bird watching for the British Trust for Ornithology. I submit weekly records for the BTO of all the birds that visit my garden which is such a joy to do.
Finding a local bird watching group is on my list for 2023. They are beautiful creatures.
