Friendship… July 9, 2009

Filed under: friendship — Laura Kelly @ 11:03 pm
“When we honestly ask ourselves which people in our lives
mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who,
instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen
rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm
and tender hand.
The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of
despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of
grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not
curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our
powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.”
– Henri Nouwen
