This is not the light hearted post I had in mind the last time I blogged, but it's where we are this weekend. Helping people we love, when they are truly hurting, is hard because it makes us feel so helpless. I mean really, what can we do? But we try. And we hope and pray that the burden is made easier by our presence. May we even cry some of the tears in their stead, that the total number may be lessened. I'll certainly give it my best effort.
