Today I am too far away. How do we handle it when we can’t be where we want or need to be?
I want to be with my very best friend today. She’s my soul sister, my sistachick, my calming voice, my “let’s do something very ornery together!”, my “it’s okay if you feel that way”, my “my house is a mess, but if you don’t mind folding a few clothes so you have a place to sit…come on over”, my “I’ll take your kids for a while so you don’t kill them”, my “my heart breaks for you”….kind of friend. I love her and her family to the moon. And today, I want to be by her side.
She probably doesn’t need me, I’m sure she’s surrounded by many who love her. But….if I were with her, she would feel my strength. She would know I love her. She would maybe catch a glimpse of me off to the side, and know that I would do anything for her. And today, I am so far away.
So Kelly, know that today I think of you, and I pray and I pray and I pray. And I’m here for the phone call, when all the dust has settled. And that more than anything, I wish I were with you.
