Say Something


I don't have much to say right now.  Earlier this week I heard very sad news about the health of a dear, dear friend, and it has left me quite speechless and hugely sad.  Sad for his family, sad for him, sad for myself, and sad for the world.

As I drove home from a visit with another dear friend who is 88 yesterday, I heard the song below.  Even though the lyrics say "I'm giving up on you," I wish they said "I won't give up on you!" because that is how I feel about my friend who is ill.  Even though not all of the lyrics convey how I feel, some of them do and the melody somehow made me feel calm.  It is a reminder that we all need to take a moment and say something to those we care about, because not only will it mean something to you, but others around you who really need to hear those words will know you haven't given up on them!

  1. Some days it is real courage to smile and go on. But it is worth it to those who love us, and so we do. Besides, life is such a gift!

  9. Sometimes, when I'm with my niece who is terminal, the words won't come for either of us. Sitting next to each other, arm in arm, seems to be how she communicates.
    I'm sorry to hear about your friend, Kat. I'm sorry your heart is hurting. It's so hard.
