Soothing sadness

soothing handsTonight I found out that a friend of mine is in a lot of pain and going through a very sad time. I feel somehow responsible for making her feel better – but I cannot. She is wrapped up in the sad story and – at least for the moment – will not let go. The one word that comes to mind in all of this is “soothing”. Soothing hands. A soothing presence. The soothing breeze on a very hot night. And a soothing thought like “It will all get better… slowly but surely.”
