I am fortunate in that I have much to be thankful for this year. But there have been years where … well, let’s not go there. Suffice to say that there are lots of hurting people out there and this time of year often seems to bring out just as many feelings of despair as it does joy. Sometimes life seems to just fling the crap at you and it can be hard to take.
Right now I have a friend who is hurting. Hurting loud enough to cry out to me. I confess, I’m scared. So if you’re the praying type, your prayers would be appreciated in a big way.
