With a little help from our friends


"It is during the worst times of your life that you will get to see the true colors of the people who say they care for you" ~ Ritu Ghatourey


A few years back, I wrote a blog post called Comfort in a cold world featuring some beautiful red socks that a friend had given me in the midst of a very difficult time in my family. Well, the difficult times have returned, and when I saw this friend a few days ago, she gave me another pair of cheerful red socks (this time with monkeys!) to once again let me know that I'm not alone:




As I was sitting and looking at the monkeys, I was reminded of a story that Adam drew in 2012 - a story about friendship in times of need. So here it is, straight from the mind of Adam, who understands how difficult the world can be, and also knows the importance of a friend's helping hand when life sends you into free fall:

We need our friends and family, our human connections, because life is hard and full of perils. When we are surrounded by people who care about us, no matter what each day brings, we can get by with a little help from our friends. 


Thanks to Adam for illustrating this truth in such a vivid and memorable way (with monkeys!) ... Sheila B


"My friends and family are my support system. They tell me what I need to hear, not what I want to hear and they are there for me in the good and bad times. Without them I have no idea where I would be and I know that their love for me is what's keeping my head above the water." ~ Kelly Clarkson
