How Can We Ever Know What The Universe Plans?

I thought I'd be coming back in to FYBF after a lovely healing week of holidays with my family, but find the universe (as always) has other ideas. Today I am posting whilst my thoughts are consumed by another, our darling Lori at RRSAHM. If you have read my last post you will know her husband is in ICU (no updates or details yet) and this beautiful little family needs our thoughts, prayers; and if you can and want pop over to Kirsten's blog to add financial help into the equation.

Most of us have experienced that horrible bedside wait, no matter where in the world a hospital is they are all the same under the cloak of darkness. The quiet only broken by a monitor, the smell of antiseptic masking other far more distressing smells, the desperate fear that overrides all logic as you wait. And the joy and ecstacy as you walk through those front doors with your loved one to freedom.

Today, it is the image I am  holding in the front of my mind for Lori and Tony. Walking away together, whole and healed. It may be days or weeks, but I have to believe it will happen. It WILL happen.

The Rules (according to the big boss - Lori, previously Brenda, and for today, Kirsten)Follow my blog, the Random Ramblings of a SAHM. I never seem to get to reading all the links here. But believe me, I try. Not that any of this is my idea anyway- FYBF is MummyTime's brainbaby. I stole it.

1. Grab the bubbly button and post it on your sidebar.
2. Link your First Name and/or Blog Name and URL of your post or blog.
3. Add a short description (max of 125 chars). It could be a description of yourself, your blog or a teaser to your latest post.
4. Follow at least 1 linkyer/blogger (Be nice and spread the love).
5. The list will be open for linkyers on Fridays (and for the foreigners Friday as well).
6. A new and fresh link list will open every Friday. And you will have to link up AGAIN. The previous link list does not carry over to the following week.
7. And lastly, have lotsa fun. I mean it. If I detect anyone not totally loving the awesomeness, I will bump you off the linky list. (Joking) (Kinda).

Ripping off my stuff- including these rules- makes baby Jesus cry. If you are doing your own blog hop, please write your own rules. You know who you are.
