A Friend Who Really Cares

A friend who can be silent with us in
moments of despair or confusion,
who can tolerate not knowing,
not curing, not healing--
that is the friend who really cares.

~Henri Nouwen

Of Note: A friend who can be silent at the right moment is a friend indeed. That kind of friend knows that our souls have everything well in hand, and each of us needs to work through our own life's experiences. It is guaranteed that friend's like this have had good friend mentors themselves. Being such a friend and mentoring others in the process is a gift to the planet.

Today's Weather Report: It's still hovering in the forties although the clouds rolled in sometime during the night. The day could be officially classified as dreary. Hunting season starts at sunrise on Saturday, and the guys are talking about hunting in tee-shirts! For those who side with the deer, it is interesting to watch how smart they get this time of year. We will see them every day before the first day of deer hunting then they disappear until the day after the season closes. Really. Don't know where they go, but they go somewhere deep into the woods safe from guns and bullets.
