A Silent Friend

Quotes and Notes #110, February 21

“The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing…not healing, not curing…that is a friend who cares.”–Henri Nouwen

This is the description of a wonderful friend. Are you looking for a friend with these qualities? Instead of trying to find this friend, try more to be this friend. It’s kind of like sharing a smile—the ripples spread and spread and spread.

Visit or call a special friend today and tell them how wonderful they are. And, as usual, it doesn’t cost anything to share a smile.

Everything is going to be all right
