Open your eyes
What was supposed to be a night out with the girls has dissolved into a night of tears, of seeing the true heart of my best friend, who has such a beautiful, beautiful soul. In the depth of her own pain and fears, she is able to see even the tiniest grain of promise in a person who repeatedly hurts her. If I were in her shoes…well, who knows where I’d be. Definitely not where she is. She is fabulous and wonderful and patient and compassionate. She can see the dimmest light in the darkest part of the night. She will fight. She will always fight. She is my hero.
