End of an era

I am taking care of a friend for a couple of days who has had some surgery.  I love her very much and she is doing great. We are heading to her post-op visit this morning and I was going to write a note to say that my blog would not be posted until this afternoon.  I normally blog early in the morning and if it’s not up by 10 am my die hard readers will write to ask if I’m ok and then inform me that they are waiting. Which I must tell you, is awesome! 

As I sat down to write of today’s delay, I read that Senator Ted Kennedy has passed away.  It is a loss for the country and my thoughts and prayers go out to his family.  I think I’m going to take today off.  My stories can wait until tomorrow.  I’m going to take care of my friend, think about my wonderful father, of blessed memory, who looked so much like Mr. Kennedy and I am going to remember a man who never lived a day of his life without keeping the faith.
