Lost for words...

It's not often I'm lost for words.  

This morning... I am.

One fleeting moment can change everything.  Turn everything you thought you knew on its head.

One day, your life can be travelling along perfectly.  The next, it's a complete mess... 

and it is all completely out of your hands.

It makes you wonder why.  It's unfair.  It's unbelievable.  It's unthinkable.

In a fleeting moment like this, a friends life has been completely turned upside down.

And this time, I have no words.

No words of comfort.  No 'look on the brightside'.  No 'everything happens for a reason'.  Just nothing.

Cliches don't cut it this morning.

All I can give is my love and support.  

Sometimes it seems like that's just not enough.  Right now, it's all I have and is all I can offer.

From one moment to the next everything can change.  
Remember to be thankful for everything you have, and are, in this very moment...  
for in the next, it could all be gone.

Oh Karls, this is what our GP called the frailty of life. Many do not realise it until they experience it. And then their lives are forever imprinted with the terrible knowledge. Your friend is lucky to have you, for it is the people by our sides who get us through, battle scarred and tearful, but still remembering to breath.
