Sometimes in life I realize, through all my words and thoughts and prayers, 
I simply do not have the answer and cannot fix every problem I encounter or hope to fix. 
Or maybe that is the answer. Maybe there is no solution or the 
problem cannot indeed "be fixed." 

I do not like when I find myself in this position. 

Not one bit. 

I also hate vague blog posts like this which discuss some 
clearly weighty issues but do not dish the dirt. 


I know.  I know. 

But that is all that is on my mind and heart right now. And it is simply not my style to 
dish the dirt {at least not this publicly}. 

So I leave you instead with your own thoughts on friends and life and 
loss.  Or if you, like me, have no coherent thoughts of your own, 
I leave you with those quoted below.   

You should never second-guess the motives
of your true friends. You don't even have to
analyze their actions because you know
at bottom, that whatever they do or say or think
flows in some fundamental way
from the fact that they love you.
~Star Jones

To lose a friend is the greatest of all losses.

True friendship is like sound health,
the value of it is seldom known until it be lost.
~Charles Caleb Colton

True friendship brings sunshine to the
shade, and shade to the sunshine
~Thomas Burke

To give counsel as well as to take
it is a feature of true friendship.

I don't need a friend who changes when
I change and who nods when I nod;
my shadow does that much better.
