was reading in Job this morning and was struck by this verse...."then they sat on the ground with him for seven days and seven nights. No one said a word to him, because they saw how great his suffering was." (2:13)

and it reminded me of a story from Anne Lamott's Traveling Mercies that I had read some time ago, Barn Building.

It just reminded me how important it is to simply show up for someone in their sorrow or in their grief. Words can be small and few. But yeah, showing up..........that's massive!
