    I can't give solutions to all of life's problems, doubts, or fears, but I can listen to you, and together we will search for answers.

    I can't change your past with all its heartache and pain, nor the future with its untold stories, but I can be there now when you need me to care.

    I can't keep your feet from stumbling, I can only offer my hand that you may grasp it and not fall. Your joys, triumphs, successes, and happiness are not mine, yet I can share in your laughter. Your decisions in life are not mine to make, nor to judge, I can only support you, encourage you, and help you when you ask.

    I can't prevent you from falling away from friendship, from your values, from me, I can only pray for you, talk to you and wait for you.

    I can't give you boundaries which I have determined for you, but I can give you the room to change, room to grow, room to be yourself.

    I can't keep your heart from breaking and hurting, but I can cry with you and help you pick up the pieces and put them back in place.

    I can't tell you who you are, I can only love you and be your friend.
