Letter to a Friend


Dear Friend,
Your phone call this morning broke my heart. 
I'm sorry that you are having to go through this.
I'm sorry that he isn't fighting for you.
I'm sorry that lies are being spread about you.
I'm sorry that you cried all night.
I'm sorry that you were put down and ridiculed because of those lies.
 
It saddened me to hear your broken voice on the other line.
I hate not knowing what to say when you ask me,
"What do I do now?"
I hate that you have to make this decision on your own.
Do you walk away?
Do you try harder than you already are?
I wish I could tell you what to do...but you know I can't.
But I can listen...and I always will.
 
And know that, after your phone call, I've learned something new about you.
I've learned that you are amazing.
You are strong.
You are better than everything they have said about you.
You stood your ground without compromising your morals.
 
I'm proud of you.
Know that if I could, I would run to you and take you in my arms.
I would tell you that this will pass and that you will make the right decision.
Because it's yours to make.
And you won't make a mistake.
How do I know that?
Because you know, deep down in your heart, what is best for you.
I want you to remember, especially right now, you are not alone.
He is standing right there with His arms around you.
He's holding your heart so it won't break any further.
 
You can get through this.
I promise.
 
And when you feel like you can't...
I'll be here to listen.
I promise that, too.
 
Te quiero mucho, amiga.

  5. Even though this isn't about me, and doesn't apply to me, your words still comfort me, because I know that you would say something equally wonderful and loving to me if I ever called you. Love you!

Hey Lovey! You're commenting! You just made me happier than...well, me with a Chestnut Praline Latte. (Yes, now you know what to order for me if we ever go to Starbucks - lol)
