I have a friend with a wonderful smile. When she smiles it's is like the sun has come out. It's sparkly and warm. I love her very much.
Unfortunately, right now, she's in hospital with a chronic condition which is making her exhausted and tired and more than a bit sad. She doesn't feel like she has the strength for her treatment. She feels like the road ahead is long and hard and confusing.
I am so sad for my friend, and I wish I could spend time with her every day. I wish I could give her strength and hold her up while she can't hold herself up. I'd love to see her smile bright and long every day.
Unfortunately, physical distance is between us, but I can pray, and I can text, and I'm going to do it for as long as it takes her to get better.
Love you, friend!
