You are not alone

A couple years ago I heard a wise woman discuss how our words fail us when we hope to offer comfort. Too many times what we say feels trite... too small... and not helpful.

The feelings and hopes behind those words are not small or trite, it's just that the words fail us.

She suggested that there are words that help, are true, and run deep:
"you are not alone"

Really, that's usually what we want, what we need to hear when the going is tough, rough and hard.

Calgary, Uttarakhand (India): you are not alone. We stand with you - in thought, in prayer, in donations, sometimes even right beside you with a hand (or a shovel). 

You are not alone.

My prayer is that out of this time there will be beauty and growth. I don't know how, but I know it can happen.
