Words Are Not Enough

As a writer, you get used to thinking that a nicely crafted bit of writing can do pretty much anything - bring peace, start a revolution, win an election, evoke anger, sell a product, capture the transcendency of love…

Carrie’s husband Rick has died, suddenly and unexpectedly.

And when the unthinkable happens, leaving a friend without someone as essential as her husband and their two little boys without someone as vital as their father, no words can heal any part of that wound.

Still, to know that you are loved, thought of and prayed for may offer the tiniest bit of solace during a dark time. I know this of the blogosphere: the people who are in it are good at rallying ‘round. So please, pop over to Carrie's and leave a word of comfort.

Sending you love, dear friend.
