|me & my friend (04 November 2010)|
She arrived on Tuesday solely for the purpose of offering her presence.
Our time together passed far too quickly, but it was such a gift to have her here. Just having her here was healing for me -- whether we were giggling or laughing hysterically, or just letting her hold my hand while I cried. There was no agenda, no schedule -- just time left wide open for whatever it needed to be.
She has such a gift for listening sincerely and intently, for just being present without a need to say anything, for letting the questions be questions. And she's a really good person to get goofy and laugh with, also.
It was an incredible gift of love that brought her here, and a gift to both of us to have her here. Much love to you, my friend. So much love!
