I have been blessed with alot of wonderful friends... I've shared that before. I love my friends, and am always there to help in whatever they need.
We know each other differently, all the 'good' and all the 'fun' in each other. We enjoy each other's company, and spend time together that we take for granted.
When someone we love is suddenly faced with an illness that we think will never hit that close to home, that feeling of helplessness is almost too much to bare.
We think that we're, somewhat, invincible.... that we're too strong to have such a devastating illness.
The emotions of discovering such an illness in someone you are so close to, are immeasurable.... you dwell on the realization that a best friend that you always call whenever you want to take a spontaneous road trip.... one who you know will always have your back... one who will keep your secrets.... one who understands you when noone else will.... is facing something that NOBODY should have to face.
It's not fair!!
But God is good, and He will get us through things that we don't understand. I will do whatever I can for my friend, and most of all, I will pray... ALOT!
It's been a very emotional day for me, so if some of this doesn't make sense... it's ok, it doesn't really have to, right now.
I just felt I needed to write something. Thanks for reading it.
