with friends like these…

I sent the following text message to a friend, not so much to console her, as to console myself:

Julian of Norwich said, “All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well.”

She responded with the following:

“Julian of Norwich was hallucinating in her tiny cell and anorexic probably. But if that is what it takes to have a good attitude….”

This is why one must have friends. She knows what I need.
