I Want to Know, But You Do Not Need to Tell Me

Dear Friend,

I want to know how you are, even if you are going through a tough time.

Maybe you do not want to tell me.  Perhaps you do not want to burden me, or scare me.  Maybe you just do not want to talk about it.  Maybe you are too tired.  I do now know what you are feeling. 

I respect your boundaries.  I do not want to push you.

I want you to know:  I miss our conversations.  I miss your insight.  I miss your support. 

I am so worried about you.  And so scared.

I want to respect your privacy.  I want to give you the space you need.  I know that this is a difficult time for you. 

I just do not know what to do.

I am praying for you all day long.


Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.

With love and optimism,

Whoever they are, they are very lucky to have a friend like you. I hope they read this and realize that whatever their burden is, they don't have to carry it alone.

Nothing like friends.

You are doing what you can - praying and sending loving thoughts.

Robin -- I do not even know if she will see the post.

Meanwhile, another friend saw it, related to it, and sent me a very moving email. I was grateful for that email, and wondered if more friends would share what's on their mind, and what's in their heart. So far, no others have....

Batya & Ricki's mom -- amen

Ricki's mom -- ps. thanks for the compliment!

Liba -- don't know about that. I did not realize things were so serious. I forgot to go back and talk with this friend, the last time we were at the hospital together, after that awful experience with the psychologist.

Leah & Karen -- thanks for the love and support!

That thanks extends to you all...
