Just Be There

"Sometimes we need someone to simply be there.  Not to fix anything or to do anything in particular, but just to let us feel that we are cared for and supported." ~Unknown ~

This is one of the images I see going around FB and Pinterest, and I absolutely love the quote that someone has put on it.  I found the image separate, as it has a different meaning for this particular post...  A friend of mine from church & from choir lost her daughter this week, in the wee-small hours of the morning, and she posted a memory of just after it happened, how the morning star was there... this quote, coupled with the solemn image of Charlie Brown & Snoopy with the bright star above them instantly popped into my mind's eye... there really is nothing you can do to make it all better when a loved one passes away.  The most important thing you can do is just BE PRESENT for that person.  If they need you, if they don't, that's up to them.... just be available, be there....
