A Worrisome Saturday
Money-wise and customer-wise it was a pretty good day at the market. People were nice, chatty, and bought items in bulk.
Technology-wise and health-wise, however, things weren't exactly great. My Intuit app just refused to accept my password, so I couldn't receive Visa payments from my customers.
And, although this didn't affect me directly, I was offering comfort and a sympathetic ear to two of my closest friends.
Yuula found out that her mother was in the hospital. Later on this evening, it was confirmed that Yuula's mother had suffered a heart attack but would, hopefully, make a full recovery. I certainly could feel for Yuula; memories of Rob, his mother, and my mother spun around and round in my head. Heart disease is a terrible thing!
And poor Motria; her beloved cat Hank has stomach cancer. Having had many pets over the years, I know the pain and stress of seeing a creature I love wasting away before my eyes.
Why can't my fantasies come to actuality? Why can't I have magical powers and cure all of the good, honourable people/pets?
Oh well, maybe one day ....
