I Wish the News Had Been Different
I am a writer and used to working with words, but sometimes there are situations where I find myself at a loss as to what to say. I think that I am not alone. I pray I don’t rattle on filling the quiet with annoying attempts to ease the pain of someone who is hurting.
“I’m so sorry this has happened,” seems appropriate, as does “I wish the news had been different.”
Today I wonder what I will say as I write a note to my cousin. It happens all too often and I will always struggle. But I will write.
