My friend's stroke has left her with moments of clarity. My greatest wish for her and her family is that any pain is minimal, and that those moments of clarity are often enough that the time they can spend together helps to heal their hearts. A diagnosis of inoperable cancer is so harsh. I can't even imagine the anguish they are feeling. I love them all dearly and my pain is a pale shadow to what they are dealing with. I am blessed that I am 100% certain they know how much I love them. Sometimes that's all you can do. And when it comes down to it, it is not a small thing, to have that certainty of love.
