Friendship

A friend is the hand that is always holding yours., no matter how close or far apart you may be. A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care. A friend is a feeling of forever in your heart.

This is how I am feeling today. I spoke with dear friend of mine today and she is having a really hard time. She has had a rough few months in her personal life which has been difficult. And then yesterday she went to the dr. and now is going through testing for a serious disease. The poor thing - it just seems like one thing after another. I wish I could do something to help her. I feel helpless when I see my friends going through a difficult time and there is nothing that I can do to help. I am the kind of person who needs to jump in and do something, fix it, make my friends feel better. And this time I can't do anything. All I can do is hope and pray that the doctors are wrong. And if they aren't, I can only be there to help her if she needs it. I only wish that I could do more. What do you say, what do you do when your friends are going through this and you want to help? It seems like no matter what I say or do, its not going to be enough.

I pray that God will protect and care for her - more than that I don't know what to do. I feel helpless - I want to do something!

Sometimes the silent, but always there friend is the best one we have. Hugs for you both and hoping things look brighter for her soon.

Amen sister, I'll agree with that prayer! it's so hard when the ones we love are struggling or are in distress. That's when I lean on Him more!! You are a good friend, I'm sure your love and support mean the world to her!

The fact that you care sooo much has to be a huge comfort for your friend!! Maybe right now, that is all that you can do. Maybe right now, that has to be enough.... Hugs.

Hugs, Mona! I know what you mean, it's so hard to watch someone go through such difficult times and not know what to do. That's part of being a caring, loving person, I think. We hurt when other people hurt and sometimes that's what you have to do - cry with her when she cries, laugh with her when she laughs, pray for her and love her as much as you can, in your own special way.
