A special woman reached out to me recently. We’d been friends once upon a time, nearly sisters. Grief and loss brought us together in unimaginable ways years ago, and I was saddened to hear she’s suffered yet another loss. The first loss came with the death of her true love. Not all love is meant to last, but this second loss was sinister and cruel. Sometimes love isn’t what we think it is. Sometimes people are not who they pretend to be. In this modern age of online relationships, we need to be extra careful. T, I’m here for you. We all are.
In the words of Ella Wheeler Wilcox:
So after Love has led us, till he tires
Of his own throes, and torments, and desires,
Comes large-eyed friendship: with a restful gaze,
He beckons us to follow, and across
Cool verdant vales we wander free from care.
