on mourning with those who mourn

One time I heard a woman tell a story about what happened after her second stillborn baby. She said a woman from her ward came to visit her in the hospital. She said the woman walked into her room, took off her shoes and climbed into the hospital bed with her—she didn't say anything just stroked her face.
 
 
 
As usual, charity is so brave.
And so kind.

  1. You sure know how to make a girl sob at 1 am. What a beautiful, heart-wrenching story.

  2. Reminds me of the movie WIT, with Emma Thompson. Very sad but very profound and amazing!
