Attitude Through Trials

Today my best friend has tears in her eyes.  Her body shakes with grief.  She cries.  I do my best to comfort her.  I hug her, I talk quietly, I speak from my heart.  I know her so well.  She listens to me.

On Monday I woke to words I didn’t recognize.  This “best friend” of mine, the one I cherish so much had just lost her brother to a chronic condition.  One I know as well or better than most.  She was still in shock of course.  For her and her family it was “sudden.”  For me, I knew it had been coming.
