Like a shooting star, some friends come from out of the darkness. They stream accriss your field of view, lighting up the night sky like a firework on the Fourth of July in New York City.
I have such a friend.
She came to visit me after I met her in Japan today. To ask how I was. She came to console me, and give me hope. Yesterday I was a disaster. I reached out in despair. And she leaned in.
I feel so selfish. I’ve never been so giving as this. Just a friend. A friend who shows compassion and empathy… I will learn from this. And give too give. And forgive.
All I can say is thank you. I am humbled I grow better as Delilah.
