Sharing a Link

A friend posted this on her facebook page. I wanted to share it:

This stuck out in the article: "At his funeral, Jay’s bishop addressed us. The words he spoke are burned into my mind. He said, “I feel impressed to tell you that Jay spent his life struggling to survive. Suicide was not a choice he made, but rather a choice he happened onto when his pain was greater than his ability to cope.”

Sometimes it becomes too hard to cope with all we deal with on a day to day basis. Even praying doesn't seem to help. Dealing with a chronic illness (plus other illnesses) alone day after day taxes my ability to cope.

So many suffer from this. So many people would be grateful just for someone to care. Having walked in those shoes, I can vouch for the hunger that goes with wanting others to care.

Take time today to show someone you care. It will make all the difference in the world.
