Sometimes - there are no words. They catch in your throat in a big lump and they just can't form themselves into what you are feeling. There is a wish deep inside that there is a way to express the emotion that is welling up. Sometimes, I think there really is no way to express what it is you want to say - and that's OK too. Because sometimes, all you need to do is just be there, present and engaged. Today I learned that my wonderful blogger friend Tracey Fletcher King has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Even though we are 1/2 a world apart - she in Australia and me in Seattle - this news hits very close to home. Its sets us all on a new path - one of support for her new journey.
Sending her great love, strength and healing - and also the knowledge that even though we are separated by oceans, mountains and continents - that we are behind her, there supporting her, present and engaged.
