I've been finding comfort in the thoughts and prayers of others! I never know what to do or say when someone I know is going through a hard time, and that means I usually don't do anything at all. I have found, though, in the last 6 days that I should speak up. I've been comforted over and over again by words left on my Facebook page, spoken to me in person, and sent in cards. Simple messages that someone is sorry for my loss or thinking of me and especially praying for me, have meant a lot to me.
I now know that it doesn't hurt to speak up and simply let someone know that you are thinking of them and hurting for them. It in fact hurts not to!
