Ever wonder... did I say the right thing?

Me and Kel 2 years ago Whistler BC

I work in a nursing home and I deal with death on a daily basis but yesterday as my best friend had just lost her dad the words did not come to me.  I kept getting choked.  I have heard of this with nurses that loose their own family loved one and it hits different but I have never experienced this. 

Our deep friendship we have and the closeness  we have is in the heart and when she is hurting I feel it too.  I can not say. "I know how you feel".  because I have not had a parent die. We even talked about the difference in the feeling from a grandparent to parent dying.   My dear friend is an amazing artist and photographer and I  know she will continue to express herself in that way.  She has always been such an encouragement to me and we go back to 7th grade when we met.

I do have an ear
A shoulder to cry on
A heart that feels
A deep connection
A tear
A passion
A deep faith
A rooted foot in the ground

Until we talk again dear friend
I Love you!!!
