I was needed

Ok, my lovelies, I am back.
I'm sorry for my absence on your blogs this weekend. As you might have guessed from the previous post, For You....., someone needed me. I found myself on a last-minute, Friday afternoon flight and spent the weekend in a hospital doing what I could...which was not as much as I wished I could have.

But sometimes there is nothing to do but simply try to be strong and soothing, someone to hold on to in the middle of the storm. So I did my best and when I left yesterday morning, the strain on his face had lifted somewhat and he seemed calmer, although the shadows were still in his eyes. But he knows someone still cares and that is a start.

In any case, I'm exhausted and am now counting on your blogs to keep me awake for the rest of my shift.

*takes another gulp of coffee and stumbles off towards her Watched List, yawning and rubbing eyes*

I hear you about trying to stay awake while at work. I do it all the time.

Your friend is very fortunate in the fact that you care so much...my compliments.

First time visiting here...glad I slipped in for a visit.

Seriously - For some strange reason, this lovely site won't let me post a response to you, so I have to do it the old-fashioned way and leave you a separate comment. (knowing my luck, it is now going to post my response to you 50 or so times)

Anyway, my response......Yes, that is what you do. I just wish I had the power to do more. Some wounds can't be healed with just friendship and a hug.

WoW what a heart,,,You should be commended,,,no matter how much help you were,you were still there when you were needed and sometimes that counts for more than anything else,,sometimes a comforting hand is more important than a solution to a problem!!! Not to mention the fact that you tried,,,in the world today where it seems no one cares for anyone but themselves and no one ever tries,that alone says a lot!!! Sometimes trying is all we can do,sometimes caring and just being there has to be enough,,,Enough for ourselves and for others!!!

B.T.W....Glad your back,,,you've been missed!!!

Ok, blushing like crazy now.
*scuffs foot at the ground and mumbles*
Thank you.

Hugs to you, sweetie. There are so many times that words fail, but being there for someone when they are in need make words unnecessary.

curious082385 replies on 4/25/2006 1:09 am:
Hugs to you too.
Yes, words in this situation are very hard and won't do much. Not my words anyway...he needs to talk it out and needed someone to listen, I guess.

The comfort of some one that is close to us is sometimes better medicine then anything any doctor can give. I got a call today and it was the best pick me up I could ever have had. I wish we all could have friends like you have been flying out there.

Very true. My fingers are crossed for that to be the case here.
