Our conversation ended with my saying, “I love you and I know this is all going to turn out OK. I’ll be thinking of you.”
To which she replied, “I keep asking myself, ‘Why?’”
I had no answer. I don’t know why.
What do you say to a friend who has had more than her share of tragedy and heartbreak? Especially when another one is barreling her way?
Years ago my friend lost her husband to cancer, then later she lost a son to an early death, and she currently has bad health and is in need of restorative surgery. There have been other things along the way, too. I often wonder how she has borne all this.
And yet she continues to look for the good in situations. Time after time. But this time she seems so very upset.
This time her boss seems to be trying to take her job away from her. Her boss that once was her friend. Out of the blue, seemingly related more to personality rather than performance. What do you say?
I had no answer. I have no answer. And I don’t know why. I only have prayers, lots of them, for her.
If you have any prayers to spare, will you please pray for my friend?
