How to be there for a Friend going through a Tough SituationThere are lots of situations that we women face that are tough. That’s life, right? Thankfully we have our friends to help us through tough situations – like losing a parent or the loss of a child, dealing with cancer, the death of a beloved pet, and more.

It’s true: “Walking with a FRIEND in the dark is better than walking alone in the light.” – Helen Keller

YES. Helen Keller. The woman who knew what it meant to walk in the dark and be completely alone. She knew the value of a friend, especially in the dark.
