Celebrate: Friends


Sorry that my post went up late today. With all the problems in my life right now, I consider it a minor miracle if I remember to post at all. (Or if I remember how to access Blogger in the first place...)

In the middle of the difficulties in my life atm, two people are always by my side, ready and willing to help in any way they can: Lucy and Alaa. They got a lawyer to take me to a government office so I could register my husband's death, they went with me to my bank so I could work out some difficulties (cancel cards, get new cards), they call every day to see if I need anything, and if I do, they immediately schedule a time when they can come pick me up and take me where I need to go. I truly don't know how I'd manage without them. Their kindness and loyalty will remain in my heart forever.

Friends are the BEST!!

My kind and wonderful co-hosts of Celebrate the Small Things are:

Agreed. Friends are so important. You are lucky to have two such wonderful people in your life. I am pretty impressed that you are still blogging with all that is going on. Late is still impressive.

So glad to hear that you have friends to help you out. Losing a spouse can be such a heartbreaking, lonely time. I'm glad that they are there for you.

Without our friends during these crisis, we'd be in very deep trouble, indeed. Glad you have help and hope all will work out for you. I'm sincerely sorry and keep sending good thoughts.

That's good they're helping you out whenever you need it.

Glad to hear you got a lawyer for your late husband. They are very useful for dealing with the estate. I have a really nice one for my brother's estate and she explains everything really well. It's just a lot of waiting for everyone else to get their crap together.

Also, make sure whoever is in charge of the estate gets paid to do it. My lawyer said the executor of the estate should get between 5-10% fee of the estate amount. Otherwise, it goes to the companies he owed money to and he'd probably rather you have that money instead of them. (Although, I'm sure you're like me and would rather just have him back instead of any money.)
