There are moments that arise in life that leave us speechless. Either we have no words, or don't know which are the right ones. I feel like that has been happening to me a lot lately. I have a friend going through a hard time and I just never know what to say to her. Nothing that comes from my lips can fix it, but I want her to know I am there for her, or lift her spirits in some way, console, I don't know. But my lack of speeching skills when it counts was really put to the test this week. My little sister lost her best friend. What do you say? A once vibrant 21 year old is suddenly taken from this world by a heart attack, and I had no words. Her friend has the type of personality that makes it impossible to ever imagine her dead; so smiley, so full of life. To her full credit, my sister has taken this loss with all the grace of some one much older and wiser. She is not angry, she knows there is a plan, but she is sad to not have her friend anymore. I have been lucky to not have ever lost anyone close to me, and in any matter, we both grieve so differently. I don't want to be alone when I get bad news, she like time alone to reflect. So, I don't know what moves are the right ones.
