Today I talked with a friend whose father passed away a year ago. We shared stories, experiences, and emotions. As I thought about our conversation, I realized how many friends I have that have lost a parent just in the last year. It’s a lot. I mean there seems to be a lot of people who are dealing with a lot. I feel so blessed for the friends that I have who I talk to, text with, receive mail from, and am able to connect with. I don’t feel alone in my grief and emotions that are all over the place, and neither do they. At the same time I wonder what people do who are not so blessed to have this kind of support. As I keep friends, family, and specific requests in mind, I will try to remember to also pray for those who lack personal support.
I Found God today in the blessing of friends.
