A Letter

Dear Friend-

I know that you are hurting. I know that you are questioning, and confused and lost. I know that we may have had our differences in the past, but you must know I'd do anything in the world for you. I know that you are scared and must tread lightly and still be a mighty mom. I know that life is at the very edge and that it's all or nothing. My heart aches with you dear friend. This very second I want nothing more than to just see you smile and know that there is hope beyond this. I don't know what I should be doing for you. Anything I have is yours. I can listen. I can pray. I can cry with you. I can walk with you and hold your hand. I will hug you and hold you and just sit by your side. I am so blessed by your friendship, dear friend. I am here for the long haul and your sleepless nights too. If nothing else, I can remind you gently and lovingly that you can hold tightly to God. Lean to Him dear friend; For He is strong enough to handle everything on your plate...with grace and mercy and unending love. You and He are an unbeatable pair. And you and I are friends for life.
You can't lose me.
Love you.

Should I be writing that letter to you?

Oh that's why I love you so Laur. You've already done each of those things and more for me. That's what's inspired me to be a better friend. Love you.
