While reading the news around the world, I came across an article about how people died in a fire in a elderly home. They found 17 bodies in the home....Oh my painful heart ! This could have been my loved one. My sympathy goes out to all the families that lost there loves in the fire. The elderly population is so vulnerable.... When I read things like this it teaches me to remain close to my family and friends because unexpected events befall us all - Ecc 9:11.

She wanted me to listen and that is what a true friend does -" A true friend loves at all times"- Proverbs 17:17
