“Let me know if you need anything.”
Most people say it automatically.
Some people mean it, with caveats.
A few just don’t know what else to say in order to stave off an uncomfortable sense of helplessness.
But we aren’t them.
When I tell you “anything”, you know.
I will remote order you dinner when you can’t get off the floor.
I will filter and respond to communications to keep your days quiet enough for healing.
I am here.
I know I am far, but I am here—for you.
And if what you need most is somebody to be there instead, I will make my way.
Just say the word, any word—I will listen, always.
