A Caring Friend


Sadness has been eased a little tonight as I talked with a
friend for a few minutes on the phone.

It's amazing how a person's stress level can be lowered by
even just a short, caring conversation.

Ample time to set a sorrowful heart free to live in a little
joy right now.

Cancelling out the grief that has piled up inside them with
idle chatter of sadness, finally chasing away everything
except peaceful joy.
