Here’s the thing… life can be hard. Maybe your best friend is getting a divorce. Or your brother just got laid off from a job. Perhaps your sister was just diagnosed with breast cancer. Or your son just returned injured from active duty. That person is probably heartbroken… scared… lost… confused.
There is no other way to say it except that sometimes life sucks and there is nothing to “celebrate”, but you want to let that someone special know that people care and you’ve got his/her back. A Support book lets you all share the words of empathy and compassion that they need…. like “I’m so sorry you’re going through this. You are NOT alone. We are here for you. How can we help?” Let your words be a balm of healing during a time of hurt.
