I read about a young boy. Who was sent by his mom to the corner store to buy a loaf of bread. He was gone much longer than it should have taken him. When he finally returned, his mother asked, "Where have you been? I’ve been worried sick about you."

"Well," he answered, "there was a little boy with a broken tricycle who was crying. So I stopped to help him."

The mom said, "I didn’t know you could fix tricycles!"

The boy said, "I can’t. I just stood there and cried with him!"

You don’t have to be good with words. Just being there to share someone’s pain and grief will be more appreciated than you’ll ever know.
