Danny Gokey - I Will Not Say Goodbye

At the end, the older woman says it all: There is a hole in my heart that will not be healed until I see him again. I couldn't agree more ~ I have a hole in my heart ~ one that will not be healed until I see Emelia again.

Abraham Lincoln

Words of Encouragement

In this sad world of ours, sorrow comes to all . . .
...It comes with bitterest agony . . .
Perfect relief is not possible, except with time.
You cannot now realize that you will ever feel better . . .
And yet this is a mistake.
You are sure to be happy again.
To know this, which is certainly true,
Will make you some less miserable now.
I have had experience enough to know what I say.

~Abraham Lincoln. Three of Abe Lincoln's sons died: Edward, age 4; William, age 11; and Thomas, age 18.

Living a Life that Matters

At some of the darkest moments in my life, some people I thought of as friends deserted me-some because they cared about me and it hurt them to see me in pain; others because I reminded them of their own vulnerability, and that was more than they could handle. But real friends overcame their discomfort and came to sit me. If they had not words to make me feel better, they sat in silence (much better than saying, "You'll get over it," or "It's not so bad; others have it worse") and I loved them for it. - Harold Kushner, Living a Life that Matters

Great Quote

When we honestly ask ourselves which person 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

We should all be so blessed to have a friend (or two!) such as this.
