I Don’t Have Answers

My face is soaked in tears tonight.

I have some of the most amazing friends in the world. People who inspire me. Who ask me hard questions. Who love the unlovable in me.

People who are going through more than they should have to right now.

A critically ill mum.

Attempting to resurrect a relationship.

A job that drains them.

Working through their junk.

A critically ill dad.

In the ending of a realtionship.

A mum in recovery from major surgery.

And my heart is heavy for them. I don’t have the answers. I wish I could say something more than, “I’m sorry”, more than, “I love you.”

I wish I could say that everything will be ok.

I can’t.

But here’s what I can say:

Hope is not a myth.

Light shall break.

This is not the end.

I hope those words are enough, because they’re all I’ve got…
