Sometimes You Don’t Know How Heavy It Is

When my friend said-

“Let me know how I can help you lighten your load”

I should have said

“You just did”.

Because that’s how it felt

As soon as her spoken word

Entered my heart.

    I love that answer, MBC. Great friend, there. The offer sometimes is quite enough, I agree!


    • Thanks MBM, At that moment, I think, standing in an office, kind of floundering and not really knowing …. It validated the rush of emotions when she acknowledged how difficult it was.
