Out of Sorts

I'm feeling a little blue (melancholy, out of sorts, blah) today.

I have my friend Bev, who passed in October, on my mind. Another friend that is going through breast cancer treatment. An old friend from high school, that I reconnected with via Facebook, who's wife just passed last week from breast cancer.

I don't get it. Have there always been this many people going through issues with cancer? Are we just more aware now because we are so connected? Is it all the information of possible causes that we see on the news that make us more in tune?

I sent a note to the Facebook friend asking if I could make a quilt out of clothes for him or his kids.  He said my question was perfect because had just been talking to his kids about something similar.  I suspect I will be getting a box in the mail.  Right now I feel like that's all I can do, quilt something so there will be memories.  I didn't know his wife and have been out of touch for well over 20 years, but I feel like it's the least I can do.  It will help me figure out what's causing me to be "blue" and will help him remember the good times.

Have a great weekend.
