What's Needed Most?
When we honestly ask ourselves which people in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that its those who -- instead of giving advice, cures, or solutions -- have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a gentle 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-caring, not-healing, and face with us the reality of our powerlessness -- that is the friend who cares.
What kind of Friend are YOU?
