I don't have the words to comfort her. I have not had the unfortunate experience of losing a parent. I do know that life is full of suffering for all of us at certain points, that we are not alone, even though at times we may feel so utterly isolated in our experience. There are many others have gone through suffering just like us. Sometimes we just need to be kind to ourselves while we are in pain, and even tell ourselves, "It's okay, Sweetheart," just like you would a small child whose heart is breaking.
So I ask you to say a prayer for my friend's family today and anyone else who you know may be suffering. Have you lost someone dear? What if anything, gave you comfort in the eye of the storm?
