let down

Henri Cartier-Bresson--Romania 1975
My endless circle of giving has been interrupted.  I was felled by a virulent stomach flu Monday and Tuesday.  So instead of buying coffees and gas and groceries for strangers, I was being cared for by the best man I know.  Inside my aching body I was so grateful for the kindness of my husband, who held my head and rubbed my back and emptied my vomit bucket (!) and came back from the store to tell me that he and E had bought soup for a guy at the grocery store.   The next day they put money in the bell ringer's bucket and I've got some serious catching up to do.  But for now, I'm glad to be back.
