At a loss for words

Sometimes, words just don’t suffice.

As beautiful and powerful as language is, there are moments when life’s complexities and ambiguities strip all of our sounds and symbols of their usual effect.

We yearn to comfort and console our loved ones, but the only words we can muster up are “I wish I knew what to say.”

But even during those times—especially during those times—it means something to simply be present.

When you don’t know what to say, don’t walk away.

Be there.

Don’t let the fear of being awkward stop you from offering the gift of your presence.

Sorrow is always willing to make room for love.

Even when you’re at a loss for words, be there for the ones you love.
