Response of a Friend

I can’t give solutions to all of life’s problems, doubts or fears. But I can listen to you, and together we will search for answers….I can’t change your past with all of it’s heartache and pain, nor the future with it’s untold stories, but I can be here now when you need me to care…..I can’t keep your feet from stumbling, I can only offer my hand that you may grasp it and not fall….Your joys, triumphs, successes and happiness are not mine; yet I can share you laughter….Your decisions in life are not mine to make or judge; I can only support you, encourage you and help you when you ask….I can’t prevent you from falling away from friendship, from your values, from me.  I can only pray for you, talk to you and wait for you…..I can’t give you boundaries which I have determined for you, but I can give you the room to change, room to grow, room to be yourself….. I can’t keep your heart from breaking and hurting, but I can cry with you and help you pick up the pieces and put them back into place.  You are my friend.
