Two people in my life today received news. One good, the other bad.
I found these details out within minutes of waking. My brain was trying to process everything and I was trying to be the shoulder for one, and elated for the other. Not an easy task.
Ever find yourself saying something you don’t necessarily quite believe (or know) yourself?
“It’ll be okay. Things will pick-up…these things just take time.”
I could feel the cliches coming out of my mouth and wished I could offer more. But alas, all I could offer was an ear. If geography were not an issue, I would have wished for a mango tree and made something sweet, to distract.
