A Friend Who Cares

Posted Sep 22 2008 10:57am

“When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our

lives means the most to us, we often find that it is those

who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have

chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds

with a warm and tender hand. 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 curing, not healing and

face with us the reality of our powerlessness,

that is a friend who cares.”

~Henri Nouwen
