At some of the darkest moments in my life, some people I thought of as friends deserted me-some because they cared about me and it hurt them to see me in pain; others because I reminded them of their own vulnerability, and that was more than they could handle. BUT real friends overcame their discomfort and came to sit with me. If they had not words to make me feel better, they sat in silence and I loved them for it." - Harold Kushner (thanks Unspoken Grief for sharing!)

This quote speaks volumes to me.  Over the past year, so many people have supported me, but others have found it difficult to relate to the loss of my daughter.  I have been blessed by two amazing friends that always know when I need some words of encouragement.  They let me vent and offer advice.   They are not afraid to speak her name and for that I am so grateful.  Thank you Erika and Carole for standing by me this past year.
