Some people say ¨it must be so great to be thin and be able to eat all you want!¨
And it is - unless they take your stomach out.
It is - unless you have to fight for every calorie you put in.
It is - unless you throw it up (all the way from your intestines).
It is - unless you keep losing kilos.
Some people say ¨she´s going to be fine!¨
And she is - except when she´s discouraged.
She is - except when she´s crying out in pain.
She is - except when she´s lonely & bored & has cabin fever.
She is - except when there are doubts.
Some people say ¨she can graduate next year.¨
And she can - but not with her best friend.
She can - but not with the ones who have been like family these 4 years.
She can - but not without a lot of necessary changes & sense of loss.
She can - but it won´t be the same.
Some people say ¨we´re praying for you.¨
And they do - and it moves the mountains for us.
They do - and it tightens the net of this great big Family we have.
They do - and our spirits cannot remain unchanged.
They do - and God smiles.
Some people say ¨how can we help?¨
And they do - and tears of gratitude slide down our cheeks.
They do - and we are not alone.
They do - and the tangible support carries us through rough days.
They do - and we are all blessed.
Some people say ¨we have no words...¨
And they don´t - they just sit with us.
They don´t - they give us gifts of countless prayers.
They don´t - they bring speechless flowers with an aromatic balm.
They don´t - they just stubbornly stay by our side.
We are grateful mostly for what is behind the words of so many people - LOVE.
Thank you all for your words...and for your silence.
