I’m talking with my friend, and she reminds me of what it means to just stand by your friends. You quietly, faithfully, and prayerfully carry her burdens. You can’t solve anything or say the right thing.
So you just stand there with her. Sometimes, you hug her.
As I’m talking, my dramatic kitty rolls over and covers her face with one paw. Woe is me! I cannot face the world!
As if on cue, Jack arrives and stands by her. Every once in a while, he offers a little nudge.
It’s a perfect reminder. The One-Eyed Cat stands by the Despairing Cat. He can’t offer much, but he can stand by her.
Is there a friend who just needs you to stand with her or him?
