Quote of the Day

If you're worried that you've screwed up in trying to offer support [to someone who is grieving or suffering], said the wrong thing, or felt like the biggest idiot -- remember that you're not feeling half as terrible as the person at the center of it.  Reaching out and fumbling is often far better than not reaching out at all.

-- Kelsey Crowe and Emily McDowell, There Is No Good Card for This, p. 52
