TDTL Day 25: The Person You Know Is Going Through the Worst of Times

I promise I wrote this last night. But after the spontaneous roadtrip I took with a couple friends yesterday, I pretty much only had enough energy to scratch this down in my notebook before passing out.


Dear J,

I don’t know you really as well as I should, considering we worked together for as long as we did. You’ve always seemed so quiet and reserved. That doesn’t change how sorry I am about your mom, though. I was pretty shocked when I found out last week. That’s a terrible situation to be in and I wish there was more we all could do for you.

This is really short, but I honestly don’t know what to say. Your mom, you, and your whole family are in my thoughts and prayers. I know that’s probably cold comfort, but it’s all I can do. I hope things get better for all of you and that you can at least cherish the time you have together.
