A Friend


“When we honestly ask ourselves

which person in our lives mean the most to us,

we often find that it is those who, instead of giving

advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share

our pain and touch our wounds with a warm 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 curing, not healing and face with us the reality of

our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.”
