With Love

One of my oldest friends suffered a catastrophic loss last week and I have not been able to get it out of my mind.  Her husband was cycling with team members and there was loose gravel.  He lost traction in it, hit a car and was then hit by another and killed.
And just like that, in the blink of an eye, life as she knew, it was over. And there is nothing, absolutely nothing anyone can do or say to make it better.

I have cried on and off and have been in fervent prayer for strength and peace for my friend.
I wish my sister and I could be with her to support her but that isn't possible.  I long more than anything to wrap my arms around her in silent support because there truly are no words.  Nothing anyone can say.  

So my friend, to quote Winnie the Pooh,
If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together.. there is something you must always remember. you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. but the most important thing is, even if we're apart.. I'll always be with you.”

So sorry for your loss and your friend's loss.

There truly are no words.
