I was inspired to ask this question after I saw my friend Beth post the very same question on her facebook wall. It was heartwarming to read all the responses.
About 10 years ago my father-in-law, who lived with us, suffered a massive heart attack and was not expected to survive overnight. All of my husband’s siblings (5 of them) lived in other states. We were able to get them mobilized and on flights quickly; unfortunately, Dad passed away before they got here.
Since we knew they were in flight, the hospital offered us the use of their chapel for the family to visit with Dad once they arrived. Rich and I were busy making phone calls and beginning arrangements waiting for them to arrive. We never left the hospital.
Two of my dearest friends, Lisa and Lucy, worked their magic and arranged for our family members to be picked up at the airport and brought to the hospital. Then, unbeknownst to us, these angels…went to our house…which trust me…was NOT company ready. They cleaned our house and stocked the kitchen with food for our guests.
I cannot begin to tell you what a blessing and comfort this was. Thank you doesn’t even begin to express our gratitude. Lisa and Lucy…Richard and I appreciate what you did for us more than you will ever know. May God bless you both richly!!
