Who your friends are

We have been greatly encouraged by the kindness of friends at this time when I have had no work for over a month. Someone from the church dropped off a box of groceries today, including quite a few tins, bread, and toiletries. The fact that we are not yet desperate enough to need them is beside the point - the fact is, people care. The box came with an envelope from someone else containing £100. Like I say, we don't need it - (YET!) - but it is fantastic to know people are thinking of us with love.

And the reason we don't need it yet is because we still have my parent's money. (Which will last us until 11th May, and then 'the Titanic sinks')

There are others - who one would expect to be at the forefront of such generosities - who are conspicuous by their absence. Times of trouble reveal who your friends are!
