{a friend who cares}

    Newer Older

    When we honestly ask ourselves which persons in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness,
    that is a friend who cares.

      the photograph is amazingly detailed in showing both its strength and fragility; its simplicity and its depth. I love,love, love it.
      And the quote you selected, my dear friend, is how I see you. You are the epitome of what a friend should be and I am so very fortunate that you are in my life.

      Ironically you were the one I thought of when I found this quote...I struggle with wanting to fix everything for you, and then realizing it is not my place.

      Thank you for the sweet testimonial, I treasure you and greatly value your opinion and friendship!!!
