difficulties...

My best friend is going through the hardest time of her life.
Someone she loves deeply is dying of cancer. There will be treatments, attempts to put off the inevitable, but in the end, she will likely lose this dear person.

I brought her bread and chocolate this weekend and spent the day giving her hugs and support. What else is there to do? You can look in her face, her eyes and see the pain she is feeling.

There is no way I can make this journey easy for her - no way I can salve her pain or ease her worry. I just want her to know she is not alone and that there are arms to hold her and hearts to love her during this horrific of times.

You would be a comfort to me I know. You are a very caring person. Sometimes you don't have to say a word, just being there makes all the difference in the world. This is very difficult to face this sort of thing alone. I'm glad she has you.

Oh, how awful. Sometimes I wonder how much a person can take. Makes you appreciate the days we have that are good or even uneventful...rather than the awful days your friend has in front of her. You're a good friend.

I think you already did....just keep being there for her and that will be essential.
