It’s 2 hours into the new year and I’m already filled with overwhelming sadness unsure how to move forward. I have a friend who’s in a lot of pain and I feel her pain deeply. Life has dealt her a tough card to play and boy does she play with so much strength. I’d never want to go up against her in poker! Every new year’s eve you pray for a better new year but for her the new year is not going to start filled with hope of a better year. I wish I had her determination and strength to carry on. By comparison my life has been a breeze. I want to be there for her. I wish I could take away her pain but I don’t know if I can manage. Or maybe I just wish there was someone out there who wants to take my pain away for me.
