A friend in need

Life has a way of kicking you when you least expect it. A very dear friend had a car accident just over a week ago and is recovering. Due to the nature of her injuries, though not serious, she will be laid up for a few weeks and some of the injuries may take months to fully heal.
This incident is particularly unsettling as she is part of a group of friends who are just getting to know one another and now one of the the people who are so special to me is hurt. Here once again I face a situation where all the things I can fix all the things I can do for others I can not fix this. There is a part of me that wants to lash out at the spirits who would let this happen to one who is so giving and full of life.
I have grown to know that most things in life happen to us for reasons we can not understand and that in the long run there is a positive outcome if we do not dwell on the negative of the immediate situation. There has been an outpouring of good wishes for her and it is all good and rekindles the faith I have that most people do care for one another even though they have not known each other that long.
I have said this in the past, this is a community, one unlike what most people would consider a common gathering of individuals, which is what a community is, but we are a community none the less. We socialize, interact and otherwise display all of the traits of a community, just without the formality of a governing body or living in the same locality.
For this friend I would like to thank all of those who have sent their wishes of support and speedy recovery as you have helped her to know that we are here to comfort and support if it is needed, part of what a community does.

GJ, it's friends like you who will get me through this. Thank you so much. I called you last night and left my home phone number. My cell isn't working. Call mr when you get a chance.
