We will feel called to offer words of encouragement for a friend. When the call comes, I hope this collection finds you and inspires your own authentic presence and heartening communion. The intention here is to craft a space where you can both just be, without being forced to feel any certain way.
As of late, a few messages in particular are begging to be acknowledged. If a little encouragement and validation is exactly what you need today, I invite you to consider a few morsels of wisdom that have been popping up for me (I just have a feeling they’ll resonate with you, too).
