My very dear friend Susan, @WhyMommy, at ToddlerPlanet, is having a very hard time right now. She is in a lot of pain.
We had a great time together in the short time we had in Maryland, and she introduced me to some other lovely new friends as well. I know many of you read her blog as well, and/or follow her on twitter, or perhaps even just feel like you know her because I have talked or written about her often.
She is a scientist – an astrophysicist, a little younger and a lot smarter than me, and her younger son was born the same week as Fainjin. She is warm, funny, welcoming, thoughtful, charming, a great Mum to her boys and a wonderful friend. She is also one of the most grace-ful people it has ever been my great fortune to call friend.
Please, if you can spare a minute, go over to her blog and leave her a comment, or send her a tweet. Something cheering, a word of kindness (but not pity! never that). She’s not writing much at the moment, but I know she is reading her comments and twitter.
Friends like Susan are a great treasure. Let’s tell her how much we appreciate her.
