Countdown to 2021 (18)

The remains of a small part of a bouquet of flowers…a metaphor for how I feel right now…a bit forlorn and frayed at the edges. I learnt 2 days ago that a good friend is in hospital with Covid. I am praying that she will pull through OK, and I feel useless in that there is nothing that I can do.

Linked to Countdown to 2921 at Ritva’s here


  1. I’m so sorry to hear about your friend Sue; no wonder you’re feeling a bit frayed. I hope she will be ok.

  2. Prayers for your friend

  3. Sorry to read about your friend. I pray she recovers fully and soon. And praying isn’t useless! 🙂

    Sorry you feel like those dejected flowers. I lost my best friend a few weeks ago to cancer and another friend earlier on to Covid so I can sympathise.

  5. It is deeply troubling when the illness comes so close. I hope she recovers.

  6. Oh, sweetheart! From what you said she was in good health before this? Hopefully she’ll be fine. Sending hugs, Sue- so sorry they can only be virtual 😦 😦

    Praying for your friend…

  8. Sorry to hear this Sue. Hope she makes a good recovery.

  9. Virtual hugs, Sue, and all positive thoughts for your friend. Yes, those flowers are a very apt metaphor at the moment.

  10. So sorry to hear that, I just wrote into today’s post that I know no one who has been sick with COVID, do take care and I hope your friend will recover soon

  11. I think we all share your feelings at the moment. Hope seems to have been snatched away, or at least pushed further into the future. I hope your friend recovers.

  12. Sending hugs, have you heard any more from her?
